Football Academy

Our Football Academy provides children aged 4 to 14 their first taste of organised sport, teamwork and a sense of community and lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits.

The Football Academy has over 110 local children attending structured football sessions twice a week where all sessions are coached by experienced FA-qualified coaches. Players also compete every weekend at Regents Park, as well as take part in summer tournaments.

While very much a community team, RPT FC is highly regarded and some of our players have gone on to trial and play with teams such as Liverpool FC, Tottenham Hotspur FC, Arsenal FC, Queens Park Rangers FC, Luton Town FC and Norwich City FC.

Our Football Academy is in high demand and it is often only possible to enroll your child at the earliest point of entry (Reception/Year 1 team). Our programme is heavily subsidised by our generous donors and we ask for a parental contribution of £6.00 per child per session. Please get in touch for more information about available spaces.
