Education: Finding The Best Specialist Football Schools In The UK


UK Football Schools is a new initiative from the team behind UK Football Trials - the world's largest and most trusted football trials company. We receive regular enquiries from players and parents asking for advice on the best boarding schools and University football courses in England, for both football development and education. We understand what a huge decision this is for players and parents and how with so much information available, it is hard to know where to start. Luckily, this is where we can assist!


To help players and parents interested in the best UK schools, the team have developed a bespoke service to help parents and players looking to find a top UK boarding school with outstanding football programmes. Our selected schools have been carefully vetted all feature fantastic football coaching and progression routes as well as excellent (International) academic programmes. It is no longer necessary to make a choice between football and education – with our recommended schools young footballers can have the “best of both worlds”.  In addition to the boarding school’s services, with our knowledge of the UK football industry, we have also sourced what we feel are the best football University courses for people interested in playing and/or working in football.

We offer a free, no obligation consultation service where we will listen to your requirements and provide tailored recommendations from our selection of schools covering players from ages 12 to 23. If you decide to join a boarding school on our recommendation, players will also benefit from 2 free UK Football Trials, giving them the opportunity to showcase their developed abilities to 10-20 scouts from UK clubs. We provide direct introductions to the school admissions team and Directors of football and arrange and accompany you on visits to schools of interest.
