Why Play Football?

Why Play Football?

With fixtures dating back to 1864 King's football has long been part of school life. However the modern game offers significantly more opportunities on and off the pitch, with the emphasis on being the best you can be and having fun in the process.

Football is a sport option for boys and girls through the Michaelmas and Lent Terms, with dedicated training available alongside fixtures.

All school teams are supported by fully qualified FA coaches working to a relevant coaching program for the team and individual.

For the more aspirational player our Extended Player Programme supports those reaching for the highest goals.

King’s football remains firmly focused on development and outcomes over “results” (scores).

Never Ending Opportunities

Never Ending Opportunities

King’s football pupils have a pathway to development at all levels and national/regional representative opportunities.

Players are actively encouraged to join local clubs at the appropriate level to further develop their game.

Over the past decade, King’s College girls' football has emerged as the leading independent school for girls' football as success on the pitch is matched by girls fulfilling their footballing aspirations, whether at home or overseas through scholarships to American colleges

Our Director of Football and his team strive to provide playing opportunities alongside development to challenge every player to be the best they can be

<h2>Residential Football Camps</h2>

Residential Football Camps

Each year we run a hugely popular residential football camp for girls. In 2018, we introduced a camp for boys. The camps are aimed at children aged 9 – 12 and 13 – 16 years, and provide the opportunity to play football and also to undertake the FA Junior Football Leaders' Award (12 years +).

Over the past decade, King’s College girls' football has grown in popularity and now places King's as the leading independent school for girls' football.

From humble but determined beginnings, King’s Schools girls' football fields teams from U10 to U18 and continues to look at all options to help girls fulfill their footballing aspirations.

Entry into the ISFA U18 National Cup has seen the school victorious three out of the last four years. The 1st XI also reached the English Schools FA U18 National Cup quarter final in 2016/2017.

In the 2015/16 season, the King’s girls faced a new challenge and a fantastic opportunity as they represented Exeter City FC in the Football League Trust National Women’s Futsal League and went on to win the Football League Trust Kinder and Ladies’ National Futsal Tournament at the Derby Arena.

Both our boys' U16 and girls' U15 teams reached the quarter finals of respective English Schools FA Cups in 2017/18 – this was the first time the school had entered the competitions!

King's College Open Day

Our next Open Day will be taking place on Saturday 5 October 2019 at 10.00am.

Open Days are an ideal way of looking around a school to see if you think this might be the one for you and your child. Our pupils play a huge part in the success of these days and thoroughly enjoy showing prospective families around their school.
