Nottingham Academy in Partnership with Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Academy is delighted to announce the launch of our new partnership with Nottingham Forest Community Football Academy. 

From September Nottingham Academy Sixth Form will be working in partnership to deliver a fantastic football pathway at post 16. 

Students will study with Nottingham Forest alongside their academic studies. 

Train and Play Like the Pros 

Students will be coached by a high-level coaching team, fully preparing players for their upcoming league fixtures. Sessions will look to work on the technical and tactical aspects of the game, improving players' ability levels and game understanding in the process. In addition, there will be a sports science/strength and conditioning aspect of the training schedule to improve the physical conditioning of the players. 

Match Day Experiences 

League and cup fixtures will be scheduled weekly as part of the programme with Nottingham Academy and Nottingham Forest Community Trust. There will also be opportunities to play fixtures at club / Academy training grounds. 

Sports Placements 

During your studies with Nottingham Academy and Nottingham Forest Community Trust, students will access hands-on work experience in sport. 

These experiences will include: 

  • Coaching (Schools, Football Development, Social Inclusion, Disability) 
  • Project Management 
  • Event Management 
  • Sports Development 

The hours gained working on these projects will give students valuable, practical experience with the intention to provide students with the opportunity to develop vocational skills required of individuals within the sports industry. 

Students will be actively enhancing their CVs and improving their employability skills, preparing them for the workplace upon completion of their studies. 

Mr French, Principal of Nottingham Academy said “We are so excited to begin welcoming students onto this innovative partnership, developing student-athletes that will gain exceptional training alongside their academic studies. As an Academy, we have seen student-athletes from our Wildcats Basketball partnership go on to excel in their sport and their academic careers, I cannot wait to meet the students on this pathway and to see them thrive in Nottingham Academy Sixth Form.”
