Course Content

With the completion of the school’s 3G pitch this year, Homewood is pleased to announce that it will be offering the chance to join the school’s Football Academy from September 2019. We are currently in the process of tendering to appoint an established football club or provider to develop the academy alongside the huge range of courses which already exist in the school.

The academy will offer additional compulsory training sessions both during the school day and after school and will include regular matches against other academies. Students may have the opportunity to gain additional coaching or football-related qualifications alongside their other qualifications as well as participate in regular training sessions with qualified coaching staff.

Students should select their choice of 3 Level 3 courses, perhaps including Sport BTEC and/or PE A-level, ensuring that they are able to select the Football Academy in its option block. There will then be trials later in the year to select the students who will join the Football Academy.

University Success

In 2018, 93% of students went to their first or second choice university.

A Level Pass Rate

In 2018, Homewood's Year 13 students achieved 100% pass rate in over 42 A-level and Level 3 courses.
