Football Academy

Claremont Football Academy attracts talented and aspiring footballers from all over the world to study and train with our roster of professional coaches.  

We believe that the ‘beautiful game’ should be accessible to all, so we offer an intensive football development programme capable of taking the most gifted footballers to the next level as well as open doors to a broad range of roles in the game such as Coaching, Scouting, Performance Analysis and Research.  Some of our players go on to play for their countries.

Players learn in an environment that demands high standards and symbolises respect, hard work, commitment and honesty.  Our Academy Director, Jim Colston, has used his 26 years experience to create what we believe is the best opportunity for young players to realise their footballing dreams, whilst at the same time not just maintaining their academic grades, excelling in them as well.

The unique curriculum provides the scholars with the tools to raise their game to trial level and with Jim’s contacts in the game, doors can be opened in order to make that happen. None of the sessions clash with any academic lessons and so the boys are never playing catch up with their studies.

The facilities here are Claremont are second to none and we are confident that the school will be a future centre of excellence, providing the perfect stage for football talent to be recognised.

Jim Colston, Football Academy Director

The Academy scholars’ programme is designed to offer each child a structure consisting of the key facets required to be a professional footballer. A talented footballer needs a balanced programme to help him succeed and here at Claremont we have that.

All of our scholars train every day and have a minimum of one competitive match weekly in either one of the League, County or National competitions we compete in.

We have 26 different nationalities in our Academy so we are truly global in our football development programme.
