Combine education with the life of a professional footballer​

Young people aged between 16 and 18 can apply to study on our Football Education Programmes in partnership with St Peter’s High School. The programmes provide talented and enthusiastic youngsters with the opportunity to train and play as a football scholar in tandem with their academic studies. 


The programme sees the students participate in a number of academic studies alongside a football scholarship run by Gloucester City AFC. The programme is designed to give young people not only skill development of their game but excellent academic qualifications that can take them into universities, overseas education, employment and work places.


Participants will have opportunities to study at university, receive football scholarships abroad and look to turn professional with the club.


A two-year, full-time education and football development programme delivered in partnership with Gloucester City AFC


Players will receive up to ten hours of training each week alongside academic lessons.  Football training and games are based at the TigerTurf Stadium giving you the environment and expectations of a professional footballer.


Players will also receive two to four hours of Athlete Development Training that includes Strength and Conditioning, Mental Training and Physio/ Injury Prevention work.


Players will compete for the chance to compete for places in the the National Football Youth League U19 which includes teams such as Tottenham Hotspur, Fulham, Watford, Liverpool, Sunderland, Portsmouth, Exeter and many more across the country.


With our links to Major League Soccer’s Real Salt Lake there will be international trips available for those wishing to pursue a sport and educational scholarship to the USA.  Real Salt Lake will host us at their state of the art academy campus where there would be games against Universities all across the state of Utah.

We are an FA Charter Standard Club with over 200 players (both boys and girls) across age groups from Under 10 to Under 21.


Club Philosophy 


We have a club philosophy with age-appropriate guidelines and principles for cultivating independence, creativity and motivation which are the cornerstones of our approach. The ultimate object of our holistic concept, which treats football, school, career and social relations as a single entity, is to provide general principles and precise instructions for coaches at each age and ability level. 


The stated goal of our training and development work is to comprehensively transform athletically gifted children into creative players with excellent game action speed and professional potential. 


Youth players should emerge from our development scheme as resilient team players with great strength of character. We also want to inspire them to be lifelong learners and to prepare them for life.
