At Helena Romanes we constantly strive to expand the Sixth Form provision. As such, we are introducing a new course to our Post 16 options. The Football Academy and Diploma in Sport, Coaching and Fitness will allow students to combine their passion for football with a relevant university recognised qualification.

Students will receive first class football coaching for up to 10 hours weekly and in addition will have the opportunity to play a competitive midweek Academy fixture. The students are able to be coached by Level 2, 3 and UEFA B licenced coaches and they include a coach and scout for the Tottenham Hotspur Academy.
