Jamie and Matijus take part in football masterclass

Year 8 students Jamie and Matijus recently spent a day learning football skills from coaches of one of the biggest clubs in the world, Real Madrid.

The boys took part in the 'Inspire Sport' coaching experience alongside students from across Essex at The Brentwood School Centre.

“It was a really enjoyable experience. The coaches helped me develop skills including a technique for passing the ball quicker and with more accuracy.” Jamie Bush

“The coaching staff explained to us how the Real Madrid players train and what tactics they use. I have come away from the session more aware of my positioning during a game and how I can help my team mates.” Matijus Mikalickas
