Girls Football

Our Girls Football programme has a three-term offering, giving pupils access to high-quality training that is available all year round.

We will also be launching our brand new Girls Football Academy in September 2023! For more information, please contact David Caryer -

Our Girls Football programme is open to everyone - girls have the opportunity to train up to three times per week throughout the year and additional hours of small group coaching if selected for the Girls Football Academy. The girls enter all national competitions - ESFA and ISFA as well as local County Cups. Matches are filmed with VEO camera technology and analysed using HUDL software.

Girls in the Football Academy have access to regular fitness testing, individual development plans, and strength and conditioning programmes. Coaching is led by UEFA B and FA Youth Advanced coaches.

There are additional opportunities with the school's partnership with Lewes Ladies FC (FA WSL 2) such as masterclasses, scouting opportunities and training from their coaches. Pupils are also able to watch WSL and WSL 2 fixtures.
