Chelsea FC Foundation Football Academy
At Blenheim we are currently working alongside Chelsea FC Foundation, on a proposal to create a Sixth Form Girls Football Academy.
We have created an impressive name for ourselves over the past three years within Girls football. This culminated in our recent visit to Stamford Bridge, as representatives of Chelsea FC Foundation, at the finals of the Premier League Schools Cup.
This world class opportunity will offer students up to 10 hours of quality coaching from Chelsea FC Foundation staff, alongside studying A Levels within Blenheim Sixth Form. With staff having worked in the elite level of the female game, Chelsea FC Foundation are perfectly positioned to recognise the playing levels required throughout the various tiers of the professional and amateur game. This experience has been gained in grass roots football and Regional Talent Centres, through to Women’s Premier League and Women’s Super League.
The link with the Foundation also offers the opportunity to visit both the Chelsea FC Training Ground in Cobham, and Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea FC. The benefits of the link continue with Chelsea FC Foundation able to offer potential employment opportunities, as well as direct links with St Mary's University in Twickenham, and both professional soccer teams, and a variety of different level of college programmes in the USA.
