Portsmouth staff enjoy football match to promote well-being and mental health awareness

Staff from across our Portsmouth schools came together recently to promote well-being and camaraderie through the power of football, while raising awareness for a mental health charity.

Teachers from Penbridge School and New Horizons Primary School took the initiative to organise a friendly staff football match to bring people together for fun, laughter and a decent workout.

What started as a simple idea between two schools then led to an opportunity for staff at The Portsmouth Academy, who formed a team and offered their football pitch for the game, to take place in the evening.
