It may interest teachers to know that many football clubs across the league run a "Learning through Football" programme.
Sunderland's, which started in 1991 at our old ground - Roker Park - has continued to flourish at the new Stadium of Light. It caters for children and young people from reception age through to post-16.
We offer full-day visits that include cross-curricula activities including numeracy, literacy, design, GCSE subjects and a range of activities for GNVQ students.
Any school that would like to visit their local football ground should contact the club's community department.
