Premier League Primary Stars - Arsenal
Arsenal star Alex Scott goes back to school
England international visits Hackney’s Princess May Primary as part of Premier League Primary Stars scheme.
Arsenal Ladies and England defender Alex Scott visited Princess May Primary School in Hackney to mark the recent launch of Premier League Primary Stars, the Premier League’s new national curriculum-linked education programme.
Premier League Primary Stars uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
Scott joined in a Premier League Primary Stars after-school football session delivered by Arsenal in the Community, combining classroom-based activities with physical exercise.
To mark her visit, Princess May was also specially renamed for the day in Alex’s honour, becoming ‘The Alex Scott Primary School’ for the duration of the star’s visit.
Scott said: “Having the school named after me for the day was a real honour and certainly not something I was expecting! It’s great to come out and see the Premier League Primary Stars programme in action. I’ve been able to see first-hand how football, and Arsenal can engage kids both inside and outside the classroom. Arsenal’s projects are so important to these children so it’s fantastic to see the Premier League investing more into this type of project.”
Arsenal in the Community runs weekly PE and after-school sessions at many schools across Islington, Camden and Hackney as part of the Primary Stars programme.

Big Thank you to the Arsenal coaches for delivering a great service and making the children�s dream true. Who wouldn�t like to play for Arsenal!
