 The Shenfield Boys’ Football Academy was established in 2011 and is a leading full-time football and education programme attracting the highest calibre of players. We offer a first-class professional football coaching programme alongside study in an extremely high achieving and outstanding Sixth Form.

Our boys will benefit from a full-time football programme led by UEFA licenced coaches and weekly fixtures in the ECFA National Premier League which is the highest level of college football in the UK. It is designed for students who have the desire to play elite level football with opportunities to progress into the professional game, semi-professional football or obtain USA scholarships.

We pride ourselves on committing to a fantastic football programme and have a strong track record of student success. Our team of staff at Shenfield are well connected with professional football clubs and have a wealth of semi-professional playing and coaching experience to ensure our students have the best progression pathways possible.

A recent example of player progression from Shenfield Football Academy is student Sean Clare who gained a professional contract with Sheffield Wednesday FC, played in the SPL for Hearts FC and is currently at Charlton Athletic.
