The Wath Academy Sixth Form Football Scholarship aims to ensure the delivery of world-class coaching which inspires every scholar to achieve footballing excellence. Our mission is to ensure the students develop in nine key areas that focuses their development both on and off the football pitch.




The Football Scholarship programme offered at Wath Academy Sixth Form is a specialist 16–18 football programme delivering exceptional experiences to aspiring talented footballers. It is a realistic pathway into semi-professional/professional football, while studying at a highly successful Sixth Form.

The scholarship is an elite football development programme that ensures all students access a first-class football experience in addition to their post-16 education. All players on the scholarship programme undertake A levels or vocational subjects during the course, with further possibilities to acquire work-based qualifications, such as the FA Introduction to Coaching and The FA Referee Course.

Scholars access a high quality football provision, working with coaches who have previously and currently still work within the professional game.

The programme involves training on a daily basis with the scholarship coaching team. This provides players with a fantastic opportunity to further develop their football education and knowledge of the game.
