With University fees in the UK now an average of nearly £10,000 per year the FootballCV Academy has proved value for money – in essence the UK’s first private football school with the main aim of improving the skills of your son with a view to him being invited to join a professional club whilst also offering a nationally recognised qualification.
If we are successful then we will have achieved our main aim but in doing so we will have lost one of our scholars. We will not be able to claim recompense from the club that takes your son owing to him being a non-contract player.
This is unlike an academic public school, who knows their students will remain with them until the end of their education period. The Footballcv Academy would still have to fulfil to its partners ie Moulton College, the Best Western Hotel and the tutorial and coaching staff. They are fixed costs that have to be met each term.
There is therefore a difference in the way a football academy must structure its finances. We hope this will help you to understand the reasons for the need for FootballCV to receive its funding prior to the start of the term.
Fees for 2013/14 are £18,995 per year.
This will include;
Coaching, matches, kits, equipment, transport, tutoring, entertainment, excursions, guest speakers, accommodation, laundry, student welfare and meals for seven days a week.
There are no hidden extras and the fees also include private medical insurance for each player.
To assist you in regulating your finances we can accept instalments - this can be discussed if your son is offered and accepts a place. These are usually based on three instalments with the majority to be paid by the commencement of the academic year in September.
Please note fees for the second year may incur a small increase in line with inflation and cost of living.
Day students (non-residential)
The academy can offer a limited number of places for non-residential students.
For any day students the cost per year is £9,500.
This will include all coaching, kits, equipment, transport to College, tutoring, coaching, entertainment, breakfast & lunch, excursions and guest speakers. It will not include accommodation, evening meals or transport to and from the Academy.
Again we can accept installments - Please feel free to contact us for further information.
International Students fees
International Students wishing to study the college courses on offer will have to pay an additional £4,000 per year i.e £22,995 per year. For UK based students colleges receive government funding for further education, but unfortunately this is not available for overseas students.

LSFs include Access Funds, (which can help towards the cost of books, equipment, transport and tuition fees), Childcare Support Funds which assist students with childcare costs, and Residential Bursaries. Each college is able to set its own policy on how it applies these funds. Details would be available from the Student Support Officer at the college.
