To change the lives of local residents and build a more healthy, active and work ready community. Our Mission To develop and deliver diverse community programmes and build partnerships to provide the people of Blackpool with the best opportunities. We will do this by:
• Increasing social inclusion
• Improving physical fitness, overall health
• Reducing involvement in anti-social behaviour
• Raising aspirations and expanding local education offers
The vision of Blackpool FC Community Trust is to continue to build an Independent School to support local secondary education with an Alternate Provision. Pupils that want to maintain a full-time curriculum but struggle in the mainstream setting, however, show a keen interest in sport and physical activity. This vision is fully supported by local schools, as it clearly supports some of the most vulnerable youngsters in the town and fill a very significant gap in provision for the area.
The School is at Blackpool FC’s Stadium on Bloomfield Road in a purpose-built facility, designated to the school, in the North Stand area of the Stadium.
Why Choose the BFC School?
Blackpool FC Community Trust has a first-class record and reputation for its pioneering and life changing provisions across Blackpool. The charity operates an Alternate Provision School as part of an ambitious £3.5m education, sport and community facility in Blackpool.
The BFC School welcomes and caters for students aged 14-16 years of age who are experiencing challenges in mainstream education. During their time in our care, our team will create individual and innovative learning programmes that are as unique as each student and designed to inspire and re-engage each young person. This offer will build on the excellent experience BFCCT has already acquired in working on a shorter provision for students from various schools. The school takes a holistic approach to meeting each student’s individual education, personal development and wellbeing needs.
