Brookvale and Aston Villa’s partnership is a roaring success

Sporty children at ATLP’s Brookvale Primary School went ‘wild’ for Aston Villa Football Club’s match day mascot, Hercules the Lion last Friday (13 July).


This year, the school has been working closely with the Aston Villa Foundation, who have been coming into the school weekly to deliver lessons around maths, literacy and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.

The programme has been a “massive” success, along with visits from Hercules the Lion. Aston Villa Foundation staff have been delivering PE sessions with Brookvale staff, to further enhance the delivery of PE and lessons.

Pastoral lead, Steve Hale, said:

It’s been brilliant and a great initiative to get involved in. The children have had a great time, participating in sport and learning more about healthy living, which is something we subscribe to wholeheartedly at Brookvale. Our thanks to Aston Villa for their support this year.”
