Volenti Academy is inviting current year 11 boys who have a real passion for football, to apply for a trial for one of our two full-time post GCSE Football and Education programmes in London.

The Football and Education programmes give aspiring young players the opportunity to combine their academic studies with a comprehensive football training schedule. Students will have the option to study a BTEC level 3 extended diploma in sport (equivalent to 3 A levels) or a full range of A-levels. The football training will be delivered by Volenti Academy and will offer an insight into the professional football environment, providing up to 8 hours of practical training per week.

LNS Football Academy (Central / South East London)

The Academy is designed to improve players’ all-round game and offer a true insight into the professional football environment. The training and matches are delivered from the impressive Coldharbour Leisure 3G pitch and fitness facilities to ensure an elite football training experience. Our teams will play under the Crystal Palace FC banner and will compete in the National Football Youth League (NFYL), as well as playing showcase matches against professional academies.

CWS Football Academy (South London)

Coombe Wood School is the fastest growing secondary school in Croydon with state of the art learning and sports facilities. The first sixth form cohort will start in September 2021, and is a great opportunity for new students to join Coombe Wood School at Key Stage 5. Year 12 players at Coombe Wood Sixth Form will join a friendly, inclusive and highly successful school that is only 8 minutes from East Croydon via the Tram. Students will have a fantastic new building, their own sixth form centre and state of the art facilities to aid their learning. In order to maximise their potential, players will have access to an A Level academic pathway, which includes the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), or players can choose to study the BTEC Sport Level 3 Extended Diploma alongside specific sport-based enrichment.

As well as the traditional exit pathway to UK universities, our academies  offers players the opportunity to apply for football scholarships at US colleges and relevant sports apprenticeships. Through our vast number of contacts in the game, exceptionally talented players are given the opportunity to trial at professional clubs in order to try and secure a full-time professional contract.
