Eden Girls get a kick out of England Football Camp
Four pupils from Eden Girls’ School, Slough had the opportunity to substitute their school team for a national team, as they attended the FA’s Girls’ Football Youth Leadership Camp at St George’s Park.
Nazia Ibrahim, Kyra Chin-Thomas, Hussay Paywand and Jeanan Paraside Almallah Al-lal represented their school by joining with other school pupils in a highly inspirational weekend of sport.
Visiting the home of the England national teams in Burton-upon-Trent allowed the girls to develop their skills and knowledge amongst state of the art facilities, and fuel their ongoing passion for football.

Learning from the very best, the girls experienced coaching from the stars of the England Women’s Football Team, the Lionesses, who themselves have gone from strength to strength on the international stage in the last 10 years.

The game changer for a number of the girls was receiving additional FA training to become aspiring coaches and officials, proving that there are many more opportunities within the game than they may have ever imagined.
Hussay, a pupil who attended the camp, commented:
“It was a really inspirational and enjoyable weekend for us. It was great to work with other people; we learnt so much whilst also having lots of fun!”
Emma Seabridge, Deputy Director of Learning for PE, commented:
“We are extremely proud of our girls who represented our school so well at the Girls’ Football Youth Leadership Camp. It was a wonderful experience for them, and has undoubtedly boosted aspirations by showing them what is possible with effort and commitment.”
