Football Academy

Whitgift School has one of the best youth football programmes in the United Kingdom and inspires students to develop a love for the game whatever their level or ability. At Whitgift Summer School, students will benefit from outstanding coaching and train on the same pitches that Calum Hudson-Odoi and Jamal Musiala first perfected their skills.

All Whitgift Summer School students who attend the Football Academy are supported through:

  • Whitgift’s team of professional coaches

  • A sustained focus on supporting and developing their skills  
  • Encouraging them to form friendships for life
  • Exploring new and different footballing cultures
