Thank you for taking the time to look at the UK Football Schools (UKFS) website. Here at UK Football Schools, we specialise in finding, and partnering with, the top football schools / Universities in the UK as well as top European football academies. We are looking forward to discussing with you the different pathways on offer and working with you to find an option which perfectly meets your requirements.
By enrolling on to one of the best football programmes here in Europe, this gives you the exposure and development that you wouldn't usually have access to. By playing professional clubs, attending trials, being coached and directed by the best coaching teams, on fantastic facilities whilst obtaining a solid education to fall back on to, gives you every opportunity to succeed within the game.
You Are Dealing With Experts
Our Directors also run the world’s largest football trials company, UK Football Trials. We have over eight years’ experience, and have run trial events for over 15,000 players, as well as working with some of the UK’s finest coaches and scouts from over 70 UK professional clubs. Because of this, we are uniquely placed to advise on football programmes in many top schools. In addition, we are also acutely aware of the varying academic requirements of these schools and place a very high priority on the pastoral care that these schools provide. The UK Football Schools team have personally visited the vast majority of the UK’s top football schools, and we are absolutely confident that we can find the perfect solution for your needs. The advice we give is unbiased, independent, genuine and based on our knowledge and experience of the very best options that are available.
The Importance of Making The Right Selection
We often hear stories of young, aspiring players with the passion and potential to become professional players, who miss their opportunities because of the lack of outstanding football infrastructure in their local area or countries. It is crucial that young players, especially in the key development years, play football in an environment that offers top class coaching and facilities, as well as playing alongside players of a similar (high) ability. In addition, it is imperative that the school has an appropriate and high-quality fixture list to ensure that all the matches are competitive. The prospect of receiving excellent coaching, on high quality pitches on a daily basis, as well as learning about the importance of technique, tactics, nutrition, physical conditioning and video analysis, will give any player the very best chance to fulfil their football dreams.
England Is THE Place to Be For Footballers
As you are probably aware, England is the best place to be for youth football right now, given the incredible popularity of the Premier league. There has been so much investment into UK grassroots football here in recent years and it is now paying dividends with excellent results being achieved by the England team at youth levels through to the senior team. In the club game, both the Champions league and Europa League finals were contested by English clubs. Furthermore, private schools are now becoming recognised as a previously untapped resource for club recruitment, with increasing numbers of young players being signed from private schools into professional clubs.
Education Is Also Vitally Important
The programmes we recommend also cater for the academic needs of young players and strike the right balance between football and education. We feel a student footballers’ education is paramount to personal development, not only as a player but as a person. The programmes will not only open many opportunities within the game, but should a student’s focus change, they will have a solid academic base on which to build their future.
It is our job to recommend the right schools/ programmes to you.
