We aim to promote the importance of education, both at the academy and in school; whilst endorsing the value of independent and life-long learning.

One of our main objective is to develop all players to be grounded individuals who can be recognized for their respect, manners and exemplary behaviour in the community.

Furthermore, we believe educating players academically is of high importance by ensuring their academic foundations are of a good standard. This may allow them to go to university or find alternative employment, if their goal of gaining a professional contract is not achieved with us.
