Pupils from Oastlers School enjoyed a “once in a lifetime” experience as they visited the England national football centre at St George’s Park in Staffordshire.

The Bradford students watched the England Futsal squad train while on a tour of the £110million complex.

Sean Regan, a PE teacher at the Flockton Road school who has links with some of the national coaches, said: “This was an opportunity not to be missed. The children had a fantastic day.”

Oastlers headteacher Lyndsey Brown added: “We were honoured to be invited to St George’s Park. The staff and coaches made us feel so welcome.

“It was once in a lifetime experience for our children and they did us proud during the visit.”
