Football Academy

Do you have a talent for football? A ‘work hard play hard’ ethos is expected of all students and a balanced approach to the sporting/academic demands of the programme is essential.

We are now delighted to enter into a unique new partnership with Paris St Germain.

Paris Saint-Germain Academy England is dedicated to developing players of all abilities. Fitness, health, wellbeing and nutrition are fundamental parts within the Academy. Each coach is specially trained in the Paris Saint-Germain methodology so that our students learn the PSG way!

The sessions are devised by the club’s technical staff and follow the Paris Saint-Germain playing philosophy, while adapting the position and level of each player. As a student at Hopwood Hall College you become part of the Paris Saint-Germain family and will play the same way as the youth and first team setup in Paris. The goal of the partnership is to not only develop the football players but also ensure that each individual’s educational targets are achieved.

The Football Academy is run by qualified, highly respected and well-known professional coaches who know how to bring out the best in you. Please note that competitive fixtures mean that students must be under 19 at the start of the course.
