The Shenfield Football Academy, aimed at 16-18 year olds, was established in 2011 for boys and offers a unique full time programme of professional football coaching. The has been followed by the launch of an elite girls football academy in 2020, in partnership with London City Lionesses.
The Shenfield Football academies offer a unique full-time professional football programme alongside exceptional education in an extremely high achieving Sixth Form. We combine elite level football coaching with a full programme of A Level and BTEC courses for all students.
The aim of the academies is to provide student athletes the opportunity to train full time and play the highest level of football outside of the professional game in the ECFA National Premier Leagues as well as friendlies against professional football clubs.
We welcome students who have the desire to develop their performance in football with the possibility to obtain professional contracts, play the highest level of semi-professional football possible or obtain both USA College scholarships & University scholarships in the UK.
Following successful trips to LA, Miami and New York we are committed to providing biannual tours to the USA where students have the opportunity to obtain football scholarships to USA Colleges.
We are pleased to announce an exclusive and official partnership for our girls’ programme with FA Women’s Championship club London City Lionesses which will provide exciting opportunities for our female student footballers. See the link: https://www.londoncitylionesses.com/shenfield-school
