Inspiring new attitudes

Being excluded from school can be the beginning of long-term failure and marginalisation.

In partnership with London Scottish Football Club, Game Changers uses rugby to help disengaged young people strive for success.

How it works

Game Changers uses rugby to turn around negative attitudes and disruptive behaviour.

The programme works with students aged 13–14 referred from west London schools where they are at risk of exclusion at a vital stage of their academic development as they prepare for GCSEs.

Over an eight-week period, the combination of regular playing sessions and classroom activities develops their confidence, motivation and social skills.

The students learn how to deal with their issues in an environment where they feel involved and appreciated.

Deutsche Bank volunteers provide support in the classroom as mentors and on the field as coaches.
