Overview

The Football Academy has been developed exclusively for students entering Year 12 and 13 and forms part of the Folkestone Academy Sixth Form. We have 20 places in each Year group to participate in 15 hours a week of coaching, which can work alongside up to three Level 3 courses.

The Folkestone Academy has developed an exclusive partnership with M&M Football Academy which was established to provide learning pathways within the sport and leisure industry and now enables students to study their chosen career path as well as reaching their full potential. It also gives students the opportunity to progress to university or to proceed directly to employment.

In addition to following a two year educational programme, all Folkestone Football Academy students will have access to UEFA football coaching as well as competing on a weekly basis. Those selected to join the Academy must achieve the minimum entry requirements for their courses of study in order to be formally accepted into the Academy.

Students are trained by Sammy Moore and Jack Midson current footballers and directors of M&M Football Academy. Football sessions are based at The Three Hills Sports park and the education taught at the Glassworks / Folkestone academy sites. There will be opportunities to visit Pro training grounds and compete in Pro fixtures.

Along with state of the art training equipment being used, students will have daily advice and mentoring from Sammy and Jack on football, fitness and nutrition. Each student will have video analysis feedback after games from our video analysis representative.

Full training and match kit will be provided and will be worn by students at all times to look and feel professional.

Students interested in joining the Folkestone Football Academy should note that football trials are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 15th February at the Three Hills Sports Ground

Interviews with Mr Himbury, Head of Sixth Form, can be arrange to help you choose accompanying subjects.
