The newly formed Academy combines professional football coaching with traditional post-16 A Level and BTEC qualifications for young women who love playing the sport but also recognise the need for academic qualifications to support future progression and career goals.
Professional footballer for Millwall Lionesses, Sian Fitzpatrick, will be heading up the football coaching programme based here in our sixth form. Girls joining the Academy will benefit from professional football coaching, development of their leadership a team-work skills, and plenty of opportunity to compete in matches, whilst also studying for their choice of A Level or vocational qualifications as part of our Sixth Form community.
Successful students will be offered a place based on both playing ability and predicted GCSE grades.
Millwall Community Trust proudly welcomes the partnership and sees it as a major extension to its development of setting up education and football related programmes and pathway for female players into the adult Lionesses team.
