A partnership between the college, Northampton Town FC, Kettering Town FC, Football CV Academy, the Football Association and British Colleges Sport, the Football Academy is a place where students can work with professional coaches to develop their skills in order to reach their full potential.

The Academy is one of only 27 colleges recognised by the FA and British Colleges Sport as a Football Focus College and teams regularly compete in the FA Youth Cup, Football League Youth Alliance, Conference Youth Alliance League, British Colleges Sport and other fixtures.

Students are encouraged to gain the FA Level 1 Coaching Award, as well as a first aid certificate, functional skills and Personal Learning and Thinking Skills, in order to improve their overall employability. We also offer the potential for talented school leavers to follow an Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) with Northampton Town FC.
