Why Play Football?
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.
She Shoots, She Scores!
Links with the Football Association, Women’s Super League Clubs, community football and universities both in the UK and the USA, combine to provide excellent opportunities for players of all abilities.
King’s girls achieve representative caps, attend Elite Performance Camps and participate in the local, regional and national development camp programmes.
At the end of the 2016/17 school year three girls secured football scholarships to colleges in the USA.
Director of Football Chris Heayns works with the individual player to provide playing opportunities at the right level, inside and outside the school.
All King’s players can benefit from a support programme to monitor their well-being and progress to assemble a comprehensive profile for presentation to further education opportunities at home and overseas.
Residential Football Camp for Girls
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 +).
There is a day option available.
