The Pure Football Academy


The Carshalton Athletic Football Academy is an education and football development program run in partnership with one of the UK's leading education providers - JACE.


The Academy caters for students from the age of 16-18, most students join directly following GCSEs, but we also accept students wishing to transfer after the first year at sixth form or college.

The Academy has two primary ambitions for students:

- an education program that offers a wide range of employment and further education options.

- a football development program that prepares students for a career in semi-professional or professional football.

Applicants will need to be aged 16 or 17 on the 31st August 2021 to be eligible.  We are unable to accept applications for the academy from players outside of this age range.  If your age falls outside of this age range you may still be able to join a Carshalton Athletic team - click here to find the right team.
