Since its inception in 2007, the FCV Academy has welcomed many day students to join the international and UK residential students on the full-time football course whilst also studying a BTEC in Sports Studies and/or A Levels, which be studied from September onwards at our new education partner, Loughborough College.

What is offered?

All coaching, kits, equipment, academic studies, guest speakers and some lunchtime/pre-match meals. Any additional costs, i.e for excursions, additional meals and exam fees for A/AS level courses, are optional.

Day students are a vital part of the team and become an integral member of the squad having all the opportunities the fully residential students are offered including the second-year trip to a European club and exposure to scouts in the showcase matches.
