Meridian Sports Club are now proud to offer further education opportunities to boys and girls aged between 16 and 19 years old, at our newly formed Meridian Sports Club Academy.
This 2 year, Full-Time, Btec Level 3 Education and Sports Development programme, held at the Meridian Sports Club, is designed to provide students with a solid academic education coupled with excellent football and sports development career progression opportunities.
Our Academy programme is delivered in partnership with Knights Sports, a nationally recognised and renowned independent training provider with a proven track record of excellence.

Learners at the Meridian Academy will study towards the Btec Level 3 Diploma in Sport, providing them with an introduction into the sports sector and a solid foundation towards a career in sport.
As part of the course, students will spend their time working on academic and theoretic elements as well as training on our superb 3G Astro-Turf and bespoke grass training facility and also playing Academy League matches under the guidance of our experienced UEFA A and UEFA B coaches.
