A Message from Steven Gerrard

To be the best that you can be, you have to work hard, be focused and listen to the right people. At the academy we create a fantastic learning environment, led by our dedicated team of staff, ensuring that you reach your potential both as a footballer and as a student.

Growing up, I was lucky because I went through the LFC academy system and managed to play for Liverpool FC and England. Unfortunately, a lot of young people are not as lucky, and they can find themselves not knowing where to go next. The academy offers an amazing opportunity for players to continue playing the game they love, whilst furthering their education and choosing their path. The staff provide all players with the best teaching, coaching and guidance to help them achieve their goals. You only have to look at the figures to see that our college has the winning formula.
