TSC are to open their second Sixth Form Scholars programme from September 2017 in partnership with the St Georges School in Broadstairs. This adds to the huge success of our Ursuline College programme and will create even more opportunities for sixth form Football Players in East Kent.

The scholarship programmes provides the opportunity for players to enter a full time football programme to train with the TSC coaches during the week alongside their academic studies. This gives players from our current academy setup and from outside our academy to take part in a coaching programme the same as players at any professional club set up. The aim of the scholarship programme is to provide high quality opportunities for participants to perform at their highest level in both academic and football endeavours.

All the players will also be given the opportunity to go through their FA level 1 coaching badge free of charge as this will be part of the programme. So players could leave the sixth form as a qualified coach to help them with their future jobs and careers.

Players/Coaches will train throughout the week with TSC whilst studying at the St Georges School, they will then represent TSC/St Georges in the Kent Academies League. The programme will also involve TSC working throughout the school to provide high quality football training to their students.
TSC will provide a highly structured and professional coaching programme developed for talented and passionate players who wish to progress seamlessly onto either University to play at a higher standard or to play at semi-professional or professional level.

With our great links at a variety of clubs at semi-professional level we can push players on to a level they can compete at. With some of our current TSC scholars appearing for the first teams at Ramsgate and Margate this season.

We will also be working throughout the school and the attached primary school to deliver football coaching to players of all ages. As well as this we will be setting up our Pre-Academy and soccer schools at the school as well, making it a football hub for Thanet.




Players will train full time with TSC coaching staff during school hours and will be trained as a professional club would be. Every player in the scholarship programme will receive:


  • A fully personalised Nike Kit package
  • Regular coaching sessions with highly qualified and professional football coaches. Players will train 2-3 times a week during their curriculum time at the school.
  • All players will have a place on an FA Level 1 Coaching Badge, allowing them to become qualified football coach.
  • Training on individual technical ability and tactical understanding to prepare them for a potential future in the game.
  • Position specific training for individuals as well as team tactical training.
  • A full fitness programme including SAQ work, strength & conditioning, individual programme and periodical fitness testing.

To any current year 11 students who wish to apply for a place on the playing or coaching scholarship please CLICK HERE TO REGISTER and someone from TSC will be in touch.



We understand that it is late in the academic year and people will want to organise their schooling for next year quickly. We have tried to help with this by making the process very simple. All players that wish to attend the programme must trial with TSC and also attend an interview with the school.


The trial will be held on the grass pitches at St Georges on THURSDAY APRIL 27th  from 3pm to 4.30pm

To register for the trial please fill in this form online CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

At the trial there will be TSC staff to talk to parents and players about the football programme. We will also have a room set up at the school for players and parents to speak with sixth form staff to discuss academic options and entry criteria for the school. Students and parents should go away from the trial with all the information that they need both academically and from a football perspective.

Students must then apply for the school after this via the Kent choices website and an interview date will be arranged very quickly for the students. We will do our best to make this a very quick and easy process for all students and their families.
