Girls Football

Girls’ football is a very popular club at Bassetts. In 2014 the Year 5/6’s won the Exmouth Tournament and they were also successful in league matches against other schools. As well as learning to become a super footballer, the girls form new friendships outside of the class environment, thus improving their overall confidence and sense of self.
