Foundation launches North Durham Scholarship

Foundation of Light is offering even more youngsters the chance to don Sunderland AFC’s red and white stripes while studying towards nationally recognised qualifications next season.

Following the huge success of the Football Scholarship programme, which saw three national trophies won, the Foundation is launching an education and training base at Hermitage Academy, Chester-le-Street from September.

The new site will see 16-18 year olds represent the Black Cats in the NFYL Under 19 League against teams from Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace and gain A Level, AS Level and BTEC qualifications over the two-year programme.

Jamie Wright, Assistant Director for Delivery Sales, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our Scholarship programme at Hermitage Academy.

Last year exceeded all our expectations, not only through the performances on the pitch but also how our Scholars bought into the programme and excelled in the classroom.

Hermitage Academy is an outstanding institution which matches our values of providing high quality education, facilities and opportunities to its students and ensures everyone works together to achieve that goal.

“This partnership will help keep us at the pinnacle of football scholarship programmes in the North East.”

The pioneering Football Scholarship programme was established in 2016 through a partnership between Foundation of Light, South Tyneside College and Monkwearmouth Sixth Form College.

Earlier this season, Scholars representing Monkwearmouth and Shildon signed contracts with Premier League side Burnley FC, while every learner who has applied for University has received unconditional offers.

Information evenings will be held Wednesday 28th (6pm) and Thursday 29th March (6pm) at Hermitage Academy which are the perfect opportunity for 2018 school leavers to find out more about the programme, meet the coaching and education team, and discuss their options for the future.

The Foundation will also be hosting open training sessions at the school on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th April (10am-12pm) which will showcase the Scholarship’s coaching style and how players’ training, preparation and strength and conditioning can be taken to the next level.

School leavers who are interested in joining the programme can call 0191 5515077 or email jade.royal@foundationoflight.co.uk to register.
