Northfleet Girls Post-16 Programme Confirmed

SEFA Women are excited to confirm the details for a new Post-16 Education & Football Programme, based at Northfleet School For Girls.

Our Northfleet site is our first girls-only post-16 provision, with students combining top-class sixth form education at Northfleet with the renowned full time SEFA coaching programme.

Northfleet School for Girl provides a wide ranging curriculum including A Level, BTEC, International Baccalaureate and vocational qualifications, and has a proven record of high academic achievement and above average access to first choice university places.

Lee Radford, SEFA Head of Post-16 Football, said: “Soccer Elite FA have been delivering full time post-16 football for over thirteen years, working with both boys and girls during this time. This proven experience, combined with the XL Football club sides now coming under the SEFA Women banner, gives us an incredibly exciting platform which offers not only top-class coaching, but a viable pathway into weekend football, with players who excel being placed into our first team, who will play in the sixth tier this coming season.

“Our conversations with Northfleet have been incredibly positive and everything is in place for this to be a very successful partnership. Between SEFA and this fantastic school, we believe we are able to offer an experience that is perfect for girls across the south east who wish to make absolutely no compromise on education, coaching and pathways into senior football.

“All parties are very keen to start this new venture with a bang, and as such we are delighted to confirm that the school is accepting new applications for year 11s who have just finished their GCSEs who wish to be a part of the Football Programme, so my message to any girls looking at a football provision for September 2024 is that it is not too late to join us!”

Northfleet School For Girls are welcoming applicants who have just finished their GCSEs who are interested in taking part in the Football Programme. You can register your interest via the form below.
