The FootballCV Academy Fees

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.

UK / EU Fees

Fees for UK / EU students for 2015/16 are £20,995 per year.

This will include;

Coaching, matches, kits, equipment, transport, tutoring, entertainment, guest speakers, accommodation, laundry, student welfare and meals for seven days a week.

The only additional costs are for excursions, airport transfers and exam fees and text books for the A/AS level course only (if applicable).

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 number of places for non-residential students.

Fees for day students for 2015/16 are £8,995 per year.

This will include all coaching, kits, equipment, transport to College, tutoring, coaching, entertainment, breakfast & lunch and guest speakers. It will not include accommodation, evening meals or transport to and from the Academy.

The only additional costs are for excursions, airport transfers and exam fees and text books for the A/AS level course only (if applicable).

Again we can accept instalments - Please feel free to contact us for further information.


Learner Support Funds

If you are studying at a public college, Learner Support Funds (LSFs) are the main source of financial support to help FE students with the additional costs involved in studying. 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.

If this is not what you are looking for or if you want more information you can contact the DFES by email at info@dfes.gsi.gov.uk or telephone on 0870 000 2288.

Personal Bank Loan

We have contacted many banks and financial institutions to gain advice on your behalf to help with the annual fees for the Academy. All suggested the most cost-effective way was to contact your current bank for a personal loan.
