What are performance schools?

In partnership with the Scottish FA, the seven Performance Schools will deliver an extensive, challenging programme to our most talented young footballers.

How do the schools work?

Coaching takes place during school hours within an appropriate timetable developed by the school. In most cases one or two subjects are replaced with coaching.


What is included within schools?

Daily coaching for students will consist
of four components. Technical Skills, Tactical Skills, Physical Skills and Mental Skills.
