Steven Gerrard Academy is the latest incarnation of an academy with 10 years of history. The academy has seen over 1000 students graduate since forming, many who will now have graduated from Universities, football scholarships or be continuing with their fantastic journey at clubs in the football pyramid.
As the number of enrolments has risen year on year, we have developed courses and ventures to enhance the student experience. Outside the classroom learners can access:
- Participation in the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup, the most prestigious youth football tournament in the world
- Tours to destinations, such as Spain, Italy and Martinique
- Residentials with the National Citizen Service
- Visits to football stadia and matches
- Visits to the National Football Museum
- Talks by leading figures in the football world
- Visits to University departments and Open Days
Students learn through a variety of methods and strategies designed to motivate and cater for all learner styles. Each teaching group is allocated a Personal Tutor, who will look after the needs of their students.
