Entry Requirements:

To be best suited for a level 3 course, you will require five GCSEs at grade 4-9, however there may be some flexibility if GCSEs results are close to five at grade 4+.


To ensure the programme is inclusive to players of all abilities, we run “Performance”, "Development" and “Recreational” squads. Regular player assessments help to ensure players train with (and play against) others with similar abilities, providing an appropriate balance of support and challenge for all.


Beyond this, students within the Performance squad have the unique opportunity to showcase their talents in front of scouts during fixtures against professional academy teams and showcase matches.

Under the guidance of UEFA A/B coaches, GK specific specialists, strength and conditioning experts, and sports therapy support, students receive an unparalleled support network.
