STAFF and pupils had the best seats in the house for a match at the Leigh Sports Village, thanks to a local regeneration firm.
The North Leigh Park Group invited the group from Westleigh High School to their corporate box at the LSV to watch Manchester United’s reserves beat Blackburn Rovers’ second side 1-0.
The pupils and teachers enjoyed the night out as a reward for recent exam results which saw Westleigh named the most improved school in Wigan and the fourth most improved in Greater Manchester.
Tom Birtles, Westleigh’s head of PE, said: “It was a great game of football and the students loved every minute. It’s not often you get to watch a game from the comfort of a corporate box, being looked after so well.”
Charles Billson, Chairman of North Leigh Park Group, said: “The hard work and recent inspirational results that the school has achieved deserves recognition.”
