YOUNG people in Leeds have the chance to kick-off a fascinating journey through the city’s football history thanks to a unique online learning resource.

Using a digitised collection of stirring images and memories, families learning together at home can explore more than a century of nostalgia, learn more about the beautiful game and relive some of the glory days of Leeds United in the club’s centenary year.

The collection is part of the Leeds Curriculum, a free online education project developed by Leeds Museums and Galleries alongside more than 40 arts and culture organisations and 30 primary schools.

Among the photos and footage on the site is an iconic image of legendary manager Don Revie embracing club skipper Billy Bremner and holding aloft the FA Cup after victory in the 1972 cup final. Also included is a photo of the popular 1990 squad, including Gordon Strachan, David Batty and the late Gary Speed.

A poignant picture also shows the members of the 1956 Leeds team inspecting their Elland Road home’s West Stand after it had been completely destroyed by fire.

Visitors can also learn more about a range of broader sporting stories, including the evolution of women’s football and the story of one of the country’s oldest women’s football teams.

The Leeds Curriculum is usually used predominantly by primary school teachers, but the council is encouraging more parents to use the site’s resources at

Leeds City Council Leader Judith Blake said: “We know the current school closures have presented a unique challenge to the many parents and carers who have children at home that they want to ensure stay engaged with learning.

“Through the Leeds Curriculum, families have access to a free, structured learning resource that enables them to explore a range of stories, subjects and exhibits from our spectacular museums and galleries collection.”
