The popularity of football in British independent schools continues to soar. Now more than ever with the triumph of the Lionesses in 2022! Schools that can motivate their children, in and out of the classroom, appeal to parents and are reflected in the demand for schools with strong football programmes.
British boarding schools have always had a strong reputation, not only for academic excellence but also for supporting those with a particular sporting passion, with ambitions to excel. Whether your child has a passion for athletics, rowing, tennis, golf, rugby, riding, football, fly fishing or cricket, there are independent schools in the UK with the coaching expertise and facilities to nurture that talent.
Finding the right boarding school for your child is no easy challenge, especially when your child is incredibly goal driven and insists on somewhere to release their goal-driven energy. Our independent education advice can help you through the research and application process to find the right British boarding or private school for your child.
Many schools now offer the opportunity to join specific talented sporting programmes, with access not only to top-class coaches but nutritional advice, as well as physiotherapy, strength, conditioning and fitness programmes, specific to individual sports. Alumni who are household sporting names are often linked to the development of sporting academies and summer holiday coaching programmes. Significant investment has been made in state-of-the-art sporting facilities that have been creeping up country-wide in recent years. Schools are proud of their sporting traditions- signed representative team shirts for a variety of home nations proudly adorn sports hall walls.
