The Football Academy

The Football Academy is a 3-year optional programme that you can complete while you are studying at the College.

You’ll have the chance to learn from professional FA coaches and cover everything you need to improve your game.

Credited as one of the top Football Academies outside the pro-clubs in the UK, we have great links with the FA and their Coach Education Programme, meaning you’ll get the chance to train and get involved with top coaches at the England Training Centre.

Some previous students have even been offered positions at semi-professional and professional clubs!
