Manchester City & Rossall School

Our groundbreaking partnership with Manchester City Football Club, one of the finest football clubs in the world, marks a significant milestone in the evolution of our Elite Football Programme. Since its inception, the football programme at Rossall has established itself as a uniquely powerful force in the world of independent school sports. Success in national competitions here in the UK has been complemented by fantastic outcomes in terms of professional contracts and university destinations. This exclusive collaboration between Rossall and Manchester City Football Club (Premier League, European and World Champions) has arisen from our common goal of ensuring that young people have access to a world class education whilst continuing their development as athletes.

Our programme is ideally suited for students who are looking to blend the best of British academic excellence with world-class football coaching and opportunities. The Elite Football Programme is quite unlike any other on offer in the UK. Students benefit from unparalleled football development, guided by Manchester City’s UEFA qualified coaches in a holistic environment that dovetails seamlessly with academic learning. This ensures a truly distinctive educational experience for aspiring footballers from around the world.

To date, the achievements of our young footballers have been truly outstanding. Numerous professional contracts have been signed and a significant number of students have won 100% scholarships to the United States which is enabling them to pursue their sporting dreams at top universities. Others have progressed to the very finest universities within the UK and overseas. The programme provides pupils with the opportunity to study at a leading independent school within the UK whilst being immersed in the world of a Premier League football team and club.

We are thrilled to partner with Manchester City Football Club, who share our commitment to lifelong learning both on and off the pitch and achieving the best possible outcomes for all of those whom we educate together.

It is this combination of rigour and challenge, on the field and in the classroom, that sets Rossall School’s Elite Football Programme apart.
