Meet the Buckswood School Academies


The Buckswood Football Academy

The Buckswood Academic Football Academy runs alongside regular GCSE (including the 1-year course), A Level and IB study programmes offered by the school. Buckswood School places a strong emphasis on structure, respect, discipline and honesty within its multi-national community and this is mirrored across the Football Academy.

Wherever you want to go in the next stage in your development, Buckswood will help you in your efforts to get there. If you’re good enough for professional football, we can open the doors for you. But, no matter what your football level is, we will also make sure you achieve your full academic potential – the two goals are not exclusive.

FA Coaching Badge / Referees Badge Every Academy Player has the opportunity to pass their Level 1 FA Coaching Award. This enhances the students knowledge of the game and more importantly gives the students the confidence to become stronger and more knowledgeable players. For those who prefer to be in charge you can also take your initial Referees Badge and see things from a different perspective.

For anyone looking to develop their football or to have the opportunity to go to the next level Buckswood Football Academy is the place that can make that happen. You provide the talent and right attitude for success and Jim will make it happen.

The Buckswood Golf Academy

Golf and business have been inextricably linked for more than a century. Our philosophy is that if you can maximize their performance then the results will take care of themselves. So our package is tailored to suit each player’s abilities. The player receives an in-depth personal analysis followed by a individual Academy improvement plan devised by our Golf Academy performance programme team.

Our Golf Facility is the Beauport Park Golf Club. It lies in the heart of the beautiful East Sussex countryside, offering a stunning and challenging 18-hole course. Beauport Park GC also has a flood-lit driving range, par 3 course, putting and chipping area with a club house to recuperate in after the round.

The students will receive coaching throughout the week by the BCA team, supported by the PGA members at Beauport Park Golf Club. Through the aid of technical golfing analysis systems, the aim is to develop and surpass their individual training goals.
