Football Academy has been developed exclusively for pupils 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.
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.
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.
Interviews with Mrs Turner, Director of Sixth Form, can be arrange to help you choose accompanying subjects.

Applicants for the Football Academy will be involved in selection trials and then interviewed at Folkestone Academy. Criteria for selection will include general entry requirements for the
Academy which are 5 A*- C grades at GCSE including English and Mathematics. Each application is viewed on its own merits, level of sporting representation and general commitment to sport.
