Following the success of its inaugural year, Abbey College Manchester has extended places on its unique course for aspiring footballers, in partnership with International House.
The city centre-based college provides students with a passion for football the invaluable opportunity to benefit from advanced football coaching on a daily basis, to combine with their A Level, combined studies or GCSE programmes.
From September the course will be available to students who are 14 years of age and also female students.
Students attend academic classes in the morning for their selected study programme, followed by football training in the afternoon delivered by professional and experienced coaches.
There is also the option to undertake fitness programmes during the late afternoon or alternatively attend study/booster classes in the college.
Principal at Abbey College Manchester, Liz Elam, said, “We are delighted that this innovative course has been such a success and that more students are looking to benefit from this unique opportunity.
“We recognise the importance of allowing individuals to pursue their sporting ambitions, while also enabling them to gain the best possible education, which is why the programme is structured to ensure that training does not impact on the core study requirements.”
Abbey College is a leading independent college in the heart of Manchester, with a fast-growing and vibrant community.
There are over 200 students at the college, comprising a mix of students from the local area and other countries. The college offers A-Level, GCSE, combined studies and International Foundation Programmes.
