Chelmsford City F.C Academy

Chelmsford City F.C Academy Programme


In partnership with Chelmsford City Football Club, we are proud to offer our very own Chelmsford City F.C Academy!


The unique nature of our academy, allows all students to follow their own educational path, whether that be studying for A Levels, taking a vocational course or a combination of the two, at our 'Outstanding' (Ofsted 2020) sixth form. The academy is open to anyone aged 16-18, you do not have to be from the Chelmsford area, however all students are required to meet our rigorous entry requirements in order to gain a place, regardless of their footballing ability.


Working within the local community, the academy further develops the skills of young footballing talent while also increasing their coaching and knowledge of the game. Simultaneously, the academy works with our students to ensure their academic achievements match those of their achievements on the pitch. 


Training sessions and matches are integrated into student timetables and, as part of the Chelmsford City F.C. Academy, our players join a squad which is not only coached by the Chelmsford first team staff but also ex-professional footballers Mickey Spillane & Elliott Ward. Students also have access to training with the First Team and a clear pathway into that team, should they show enough all-round ability.


Moulsham High School is a thriving, inclusive community that welcomes students, parents, staff and visitors from all backgrounds. The school’s three core values which are inextricably linked, are that our students should Enjoy, Enrich and Achieve. An Ofsted inspection earlier this year noted that as well as the Sixth Form provision, the quality of education and personal development opportunities at the school are both outstanding. The full report can be read here.
