Michael Owen opens new facility at Abbey Gate
Abbey Gate College and former footballer Michael Owen unveil new sports pavilion
Abbey Gate College recently celebrated the opening of its sports and teaching pavilion, joined by special guest former Premier League and England footballer Michael Owen.
The BT Sports pundit unveiled the new building alongside Headmistress Tracy Pollard and founding Governor Maria Heywood, which will enhance the Chester-based school’s commitment to the benefits of physical and mental wellbeing through sport.
This building provides the college with modern changing areas and showering facilities, a valuable multi-purpose teaching and activities space, and a state of the art cardio-vascular gymnasium. It also gives the school a community space.
Headmistress Tracy Pollard said: “The opening of the Teaching and Sports Pavilion marks an important point in our journey at Abbey Gate College in creating better sporting facilities for the benefit of all our pupils; from the very youngest in Foundation stage to the oldest in the sixth form.
“Our desire and vision is to extend the provision of sport for all age groups, all year round and to create a culture of being active, healthy and happy.”
