Our football programmes offer UEFA licensed coaches, and experienced teachers who have designed a curriculum that will offer students the practical and academic knowledge to succeed whatever their intended exit routes may be. Our aim is to offer unique opportunities for people in the wider community using sport as a lens to educate and develop the next generation workforce. Our strategic approach to service the sports industry includes pathways into universities, playing recreationally, semi-professionally or professionally, coaching employment and US scholarships.

Want to study something other than sport?
Beyond the sporting industry these collaborative programmes also offer opportunities to all, where enrichment programmes are designed to break down barriers for participation, increase opportunities and widen the curriculum for our students. Our football for all approach is aimed at offering these enrichment opportunities beyond our specialist sports courses, where our students will be able to access quality coaching enrichment whatever they chose to study. Students can benefit from these activities whilst pursuing as career and undertaking a wide range of diverse and bespoke courses offered here at Stanmore College.
Additionally, the college will be working closely with other local businesses and industries to offer a unique learning experience while our students enjoy their sporting enrichment and prepare them for the working world.
