The Football Academy concept was initiated by Cirencester College and Cirencester Town Football Club in 1996.
The vision was to provide full-time football coaching in conjunction with full-time education. This model set the benchmark that numerous colleges have followed and we gained the coveted National Training Award in 1999.
Players are selected for the Academy on the basis of their football ability. The Academy programme has a rigorous daily individual and team training regime. Players will be assessed and developed through individual fitness, diet and nutrition. Alongside the football you will have a programme of study which can be academic or vocational eg A-levels or Extended National Diplomas.
