Boston Spa Development Centre

Boston Spa School has strengthened their partnership with The Leeds United Foundation with the introduction of a new course.

The Leeds United Foundation Football Development Centre at Boston Spa School offers both football training and academic qualifications specifically for Males & Females aged between 16-19 years old. Students can combine full-time study with a football training schedule and the chance to represent The Leeds United Foundation within the college league.

Each player is encouraged to achieve their ambitions both in the classroom and on the pitch and with this in mind we have introduced the BTEC National Extended Diploma in Sports (Performance & Excellence). This course not only covers the study of sports nutrition, sports performance analysis and anatomy and physiology in sport, it also gives students the opportunity to organise events and relevant experience in sports teaching which is crucial for future employment.

There are many benefits and pathways leading on from success on the course. It offers students a fully recognised qualification for UCAS applications, and gives an insight into the football and sports industry which supports young people in making the right decisions. The Football Development Centre also gives students the opportunity to gain FA Coaching qualifications and Sports Leaders Awards which develop their skills and enhance their career potential.

The schools partnership with The Leeds United Foundation has seen England Football players James Milner, Fabien Delph and Sophie Walton study at the school, and current Leeds United 1st team players Ade White and Tom Lees
