Our Academic Offering

When you're not showing off your skills on the pitch, you'll be showing us what you're made of in the classroom.

Our Academic Offering

You can follow one of two routes:

Vocational Route:

BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport

BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport

A Level Route: 

Choose to study 3 A levels from 21 subject areas.

If you want to take the A Level route, you can choose to study 3 of the below subjects:

  • Accounting
  • Art
  • Biology
  • Business Studies
  • Chemistry
  • Computing
  • Economics
  • English Language
  • English Literature
  • Geography
  • Graphic Design
  • History
  • Law
  • Maths
  • Media Studies
  • Photography
  • Physical Education
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Religious Studies
  • Sociology


Whichever path you choose, you’ll study with others taking the same option, but then you’ll join forces with your squad for training, workshops, games and tutorials throughout the week.

You’ll also get the chance to up your game by studying for a Level 1/2 FA Coaching Badge – which will really set you apart from the competition when it comes to working in the industry. And to put everything you’ve learnt into practice, you’ll be given opportunity to coach primary schools and work with the next generation of footballing talent.

But let’s be clear, if you want to enjoy the top-class training and be selected to represent NULC, you need to keep ahead of the game. So that means keeping on top of your studies and excelling in the classroom.

Future Tactics - So what's next?

You are totally in control of your next move. You might decide to pursue your academic interests and apply to a University. You might be offered a job in this field or get an Apprenticeship in fitness, leisure or sports. Or you may land a professional contract. Which ever one of these routes you decide on, you can be sure that you'll be able to put into practice everything you have learnt over the last two years.
