Why Choose The Academy?

If you are considering a football academy as your preferred option of continuing education there are a number of important aspects to think about.  Resources are important, as is evidence of retention and achievement rates among students and we exceed national benchmarks for these.  Our students stay and succeed and this related to staff expertise.

Our Football Academy is among a very few in the country, let alone in the county, that employs full-time staff that are not only fully qualified graduate teachers and assessors but are also qualified UEFA ‘A’ and ‘B’ Licensed coaches. The continuity from classroom to dressing room is unrivaled and bridges the gap between academic life and performance on the field. At no point will you be handed over to an inexperienced part-time coach supplied by an external company. We only employ highly qualified professionals who have worked in, and have experience of both professional football and education.

You will be putting your trust in genuine experts able to advise and support you through every aspect of your progression, from applications to University and Scholarships in USA, to understanding the physiological, technical, tactical and psychological demands of modern football.

Choosing the Chelsea FC Foundation Academy at STS demonstrates that you are prepared to expect something of yourself, that you do have the desire to improve and that you trust us to help you make that happen. It’s the smart choice and one that we take seriously.
