Football Freestyle and Wellbeing


On Thursday 11 June, students from Year 9 took part in an Edukit event with football freestyler and two-time Guinness World Record holder, Jamie Knight. 

Jamie hosted a morning of tricks and wellbeing chat which our students thoroughly enjoyed. 

During the session, students got the chance to see Jamie’s most amazing skills, learnt some basic skills and tricks to show to their friends and asked Jamie questions about his life and wellbeing.

Students were active and engaged throughout and learnt that Jamie went to College and studied A Levels in Maths, History and Politics, and then went onto University to study International Business Finance and Economics. After his formal education, Jamie started working with a global organisation called BDO but the life of freestyle football took him on a very different path. It just goes to show that sometimes you do not know what is around that corner!   What a fantastic experience this was for our students!
