West Ham Schools Programme

London City Airport has entered into a three year partnership with West Ham in support of their new Bobby Moore schools programme, which aims to raise the aspiration levels of school children in Newham and surrounding boroughs.

Using the legacy of Bobby Moore and the power of the Club, the programme will seek to inspire students to live healthy and successful lives. Every year 6 student in Newham borough will visit the club for a West Ham matchday experience, and there will be opportunities to engage with West Ham via roadshows and football festivals. Each school in the borough will be offered targeted intervention over a 10 week period to year 6 students who are struggling with their Maths and English, and for the wider year group there will be an assembly about Bobby Moore and a Healthy Lifestyles workshop.

The airport is delighted to be working with West Ham on this project, which through various methods of engagement will capture the hearts and minds of young people around Newham at a crucial time in their educational pathway.

NASSA (Newham All Stars Sports Academy)

csr-newham-sports-academy-logo860x383.pngIn 2015, London city Airport entered into a two year partnership with NASSA in which we sponsored their Wheelchair Basketball Team.

Every Friday, NASSA coaches host a 2 hour training session for between 20 – 25 participants from boroughs across East London. Of the group, between 12-17 are local young wheelchair users, with the remaining able bodied youth using UEL’s special sports wheelchairs to participate.

It is a truly inclusive activity, building bridges between young disabled and able-bodied East Londoners with a joint passion for the sport.

The project is having a fantastic all-round impact on the young people involved, with results indicating that 95% feel healthier, 94% feel better about themselves, and 93% feel more motivated.

Alongside training, the wheelchair basketball squad entered a team into the 2015 London Youth Games at Crystal Palace, coming a credible sixth out of 10 teams after only 3 months of training. The team will enter again in the 2016 London Youth Games with an ambition to rise through the ranks.
