SJR is 50 – Former Teacher Success!

SJR is 50 – Former Teacher Success!

As part of our 50th year anniversary we are celebrating our former students and honouring our incredible teaching staff.

Scott was the former Head of Department for Sport who taught, coached and inspired our BTEC Sport, Rugby and Football students for a number of years. As well as his teaching role Scott was a coach for more than 20 years at clubs Blackburn Rovers Academy and Wigan Athletic Academy.

However, two years ago he decided to retire from teaching and focus solely on his coaching commitments by joining the England Amputee team at the end of 2020

His side went to the European Championships in 2021 but were ultimately knocked out by Spain on penalties in the quarter-finals.

Rogers said: “What held us back with the Euros was Covid, as ideally, we would have like to have travelled and played other nations which we couldn’t do whereas now we can.”

Recently Scott has been appointed as the Head of Technical Coaching and hopes to take the team to victory at the World Cup later this year in Turkey.

Rogers said: “We’re really confident, we got to the quarter finals of the European championships but we felt as though we could have gone further in the tournament.

The England Amputee Football Association is a charity and relies 100 per cent on donations for funding to support amputees and those with limb affecting disabilities to get involved in football from grassroots to international play.

I had a great experience at SJR. I met a lovely bunch of people and made so many friends. I wouldn’t have achieved the grades I did without the tutor advice and support. Thank you.
