Easy access to the major road motorway networks means you can be in Manchester or Birmingham within the hour with many other cities such as Chester, Shrewsbury and Stoke just a short drive away.

EduKick England Junior Academy Campus has many superb modern facilities with spectacular views across the picturesque countryside. The school has seven boarding houses which mostly have single and twin rooms but there are also some larger multi-bedded rooms available. There are both en-suite and shared bathroom options the school can accommodate up to 360 residential students.

Each of the seven (7) boarding houses is run by an experienced Housemaster or Housemistress. The support of a strong pastoral team offers a safe and friendly environment for the students to call “home”. Fundamental to this is the relationship forged between the House and the Parent. We believe that an effective working relationship with clear and regular communication allows students to feel as though they have a strong, caring team around them.

Each House provides an opportunity for boarders to take on roles of responsibility and learn to become more independent, whilst developing the skills to work together as a team. EduKick England Junior Academy is an incredibly busy school there is always something going on, from sport and drama, evening debating groups, even taking part in twilight catch up lessons - not to mention the weekend shopping excursions.

EDUCATION


Lower (11-13) and Middle (14-16) school, and Sixth Form (16+)


Manchester City Football Club
EduKick England Junior Academy players in the classroom!

LOWER SCHOOL (age 11-13) – It is the school’s aim to provide students with the best possible learning experiences, activities and opportunities to enable each to flourish. The focus is to form independent young people who are confident in their skills and ability to express themselves. Our academic core is crucial with inspiring teaching in small and caring teaching groups each child can develop to the greatest extent possible in purposeful endeavour. Pupils are engaged and challenged as a result. Students operate within well disciplined, happy, kind and respectful environments. Exemplary behaviour is expected; manners are reinforced and are central in the close pastoral care of each individual.

Teaching is all undertaken by subject specialists through Year 7 and 8 and the form tutor provides the pastoral care and monitors each student’s progress. We seek to build good relationships between parents and tutors so they will be the parent's first port of call if they have a query on any issue. The curriculum includes English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, RS, Art, ICT, Music, PE and Games, Spanish, Latin and Design Technology.

MIDDLE SCHOOL (age 14-16) – Pupils joining Middle School will enjoy a stimulating environment with an even wider range of curricular and extracurricular opportunities than the lower school. The emphasis on developing personal responsibility and an appropriate self-esteem continues. The pastoral system in the Middle School is based within the Residential House system. On joining Middle School entry at Year 9, all pupils join one of the College's integrated boarding and day Houses, and are under the care of a Housemaster or Housemistress and a team of dedicated tutors.

There are two male Middle School Houses, St Cuthbert's and St Patrick's and one female Middle School House, St Aidan's. The Tutor-Pupil link will normally continue throughout the three years leading to GCSE. The development of good relationships between tutor and pupil and between tutor and parents is given a high priority. This reinforces the belief that reciprocal communication between home and school ensures complete care when guiding pupils through such important developmental years.

As a member of the Middle School each pupils will have an allegiance to a Competitive House. Middle School pupils are encouraged to contribute to the performance of their House in a wide range of activities from academic, sport to music, from drama to debating. Teaching is all undertaken by subject specialists the curriculum includes English, Maths, Science (Biology, Chemistry, physics), History & Classics, Geography, RS, Art, ICT, Music, Business Studies, Economics, Sociology , PE and Games, Spanish, Latin and Design Technology.

Sixth Form (age 16+) – The Sixth Form at Ellesmere is hugely successful and offers full time courses for over 200 students. The EduKick England Junior Academy provides teaching and learning of the highest quality. We are proud of the high performance of successive generations of students who have ensured that the EduKick England Junior Academy is noted both nationally and internationally for its achievements.

The EduKick England Junior Academy takes the preparation of students for Oxbridge entrance very seriously and, indeed, our academic enrichment programme offers extension activities in all subjects. University entrance is hugely successful with over 85% of students gaining their first choice place in a wide spectrum of courses and Universities including Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group Institutions.

A range of subjects are available at A level or students may choose to pursue their advanced studies through the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Students wishing to follow a programme of A levels must achieve a minimum of five grade C passes at GCSE. A higher standard is required for entry to the International Baccalaureate Diploma course.

The following subjects are offered at A level:
  • Art & Design
  • Biology
  • Business Studies
  • Chemistry
  • Design
  • Drama
  • Economics
  • English Literature

International Baccalaureate - EduKick England Junior Academy IB provides a demanding two-year program of advanced academic study, but offers a much broader curriculum than A-Levels, enabling students to acquire a more balanced subject profile. It encourages independent learning, and is widely respected by universities worldwide, because of the range of skills it develops.

It allows students to feel more confident when they begin a degree course - students from the IB Diploma have significantly lower university drop-out rates than students who follow the more familiar A-level system. The IB Diploma offers a broad curriculum that enables students to follow a more balanced subject profile; in addition, the core of the programme adds considerable value to a Sixth Form education.

Period Grades - are released twice in each terml.

Pastoral care tutoring - Day pupils and boarders alike benefit from the team of tutors and a 'house mother', all marshalled by a Housemaster or Housemistress. Each pupil is given a personal tutor whilst in Lower School the role is taken by the form teacher. The emphasis, again, is on the individual. The tutor will oversee the development of the pupil in all aspects of life at EduKick England Junior Academy and regular communication with parents is very much part of the scheme.

Support for Learning at EduKick England Junior Academy is available on a temporary or permanent basis for those students who are experiencing difficulty with a particular area of the curriculum. Pupils do not need to have an identifiable learning barrier (such as dyslexia) to benefit from support lessons. Lessons are tailored to the individual needs of pupils and are charged as an extra to the school fees. For dyslexic pupils lessons are often timetabled in place of French, but not always, as we try to fit the curriculum to the pupil.

Our aim is to create excellent provision for all students, and we have particular expertise in supporting pupils with dyslexia and related conditions such as dyspraxia and dyscalculia.

Football Pathway Post EduKick England Junior Academy

Entry into UK football Trials in Manchester


Twice per year participants are able to showcase their talent in front of invited scouts from clubs at all levels of the football structure in the UK while playing alongside some top quality players in the trials. This is a real target for all players to get noticed. At UK football trials on average they have 12 - 15 different club scouts in attendance, all looking for players. When attending through us here at EduKick EduKick England Junior Academy players have the advantage of more information going to the scouts and the UK football trials placement officer. We submit player's information with notes on their progress throughout their time with us as well as listing previous achievements sometimes with links to their own player profile on our website. This information is provided to all scouts in attendance. Attending the trials twice gives our participants an initial opportunity to test out the trials in the Autumn (fall) and familiarise themselves with the environment and nature of the event then use the knowledge and feedback gained to build, prepare and focus on the second session which takes place in the spring. In recent history we have had EduKick players selected at the events for further club trials with Everton FC, Crewe Alexandra FC, Bury FC, Accrington Stanley FC, and Witton Albion FC.

Manchester City Football Club
EduKick academy players turning professional!

Quinn Bredin, Canadav

Quinn has gone on to success back home after being selected for Vancouver whitecaps programme and being part of the Canadian National youth programme.


Quinn was invited to a Whitecaps camp Jan 5 - 17th, 2015 and the trials went well and he was offered a place in their U18 Residency program. Quinn progressed well in the first few months the coaching staff feeding back that Quinn was excelling at a rapid pace and that he had become their strongest CB. Quinn's father commented "Being away from home so long and being a lot more mature than the typical 18 year old is helping the coaches see a long term strategy for Quinn”


In June Quinn was invited back for another year in 2016 and has been identified for the Vancouver pro-pathway program. He has more minutes than any other player since January and the coaches say he is the hardest working player according to their fitness monitoring and bleep tests. By April 2016 Quinn will know if there is a full professional contract offered for him to join first team in MLS or the second team who play in USL team.

Quinn has been listed as part of the Canada U-20 squad training to work towards the U-20 world cup in World Cup Korea Republic 2017


Eric Behrens, Germany


Eric signed for Championship club Derby County FC. Eric showed great potential in Manchester and first came to the attention of scouts at Platt lane complex, former home of the Manchester City youth academy. During September 2012, his first month on the programme with us Eric impressed the goalkeeper coaches of Manchester City that much that they invited him in to train with the club's academy goalkeepers on a regular basis. During this time Eric received some top class coaching from the city goalkeeper coaches in addition to training daily with the Edukick Manchester team and being our No 1 in matches. During the course of the programme Eric earned himself several opportunities going on trial with Aston Villa, before visiting Derby County FC. Derby straight away took to Eric with head of recruitment Craig Short saying he had come into the team and performed brilliantly. Eric spend several weeks travelling to Derby to join the team at weekends for matches, which in itself was a great experience for a 16 year old young player. After a few weeks of discussions Eric was offered a scholarship at the club and put pen to paper.



Carlos Mora, Spain


Carlos secured a trial with Premier League club Everton FC while with us here in Manchester. Carlos was performing well in EduKick training and matches and for his age was a massive 6 foot 1 in height which was an advantage for his goalkeeping position. Carlos held his own in the games against the older colleges and teams and was very consistent. Opposition team managers and coaches commented on the ability of Carlos and his first UK football trials session a few clubs were asking questions about him. It wasn't until the second trials session that Everton FC approached Edukick Manchester for details of Carlos and invited him for a trial. Unfortunately at that stage Carlos had sustained an ankle injury, which kept him from training for a few weeks, however he was determined to get back to full fitness as soon as possible and patient enough to ensure he recovered fully. After recovery Carlos attended first session at Finch Farm the training ground of Everton FC. He worked with the goalkeeper coach and the development group at the training ground and performed well, so much so he's been back several times for the coaching staff to keep an eye on his development.




Chafik Naceri, Algeria


Chafik graduated from EduKick Manchester and immediately signed a contract with Spanish side Alcorcon AD of the Spanish second division.


Chafik joined the EduKick Manchester team in January 2015 on the half year programme. His desire and drive was quickly seen by the coaches at EduKick and at the UK football trials. In the UK Chafik didn't get his break, however during the last few weeks of the programme in Manchester he got the call to head to Spain for trials where he impressed the coaches and team so much they signed him. During his trial period in Spain he played in friendly fixtures against Real Madrid and Getafe, which was a great experience for the young player. After signing Chafik contacted us here at EduKick to tell us all about it and thank the EduKick team for everything, saying they have helped him on his path to his dream.




Danny Turgeon, USA


Lawrence Hanna, Australia


Robert Otieno, Kenya


Jethro Pang, Hong Kongv

Accrington Stanley FC a partner club of Edukick Manchester recently requested 4 of our players head in for trials following the ASFC head of recruitment Dave Bailey keeping a watchful eye on their progress after standing out at the UK football trials events. For Lawrence it was not his first invitation, as a follow up to his initial trial after being asked along to the academy when Head of Recruitment spotted him in the Edukick V Accrington Stanley Target fixture. For Danny, head of recruitment Dave Bailey has kept an eye on him since first seeing him in training sessions back in 2014. Following that Dave worked with Danny to encourage him to progress and return to the UK with the Edukick programme, where he feels he has come on a great deal and now wanted to take a closer look with Accrington Stanley.Both Jethro and Robert were spotted by one of Dave's scouts at the UK football trials, an event that Edukick Manchester attends regularly with the players to give opportunities in the game. From here these two were picked out to go along to the next stage of trials with the club.


So for all four, it's a great opportunity to show their ability to the Accrington coaches, experience what a UK football academy is like and get extra coaching along the way.




Miguel Hamutenya, Namibia


Miguel currently plays professionally for Norwegian first division club Hönefoss BK. Since leaving the EduKick program Miguel signed a professional contract with Bnei Sakhnin of the Israel Premier League. After a successful season with Bnei Sakhnin Miguel then signed a contract subject to a successful work permit application with Glasgow Rangers of the Scottish premier division but unfortunately the work permit application was turned down so he could not continue with the then Scottish Champions so tried his luck in Norway where he established himself as a key member of the championship chasing Strommen FC team before securing a mom to his current club.






Ismail Zaan, Maldives


Zaan joined Edukick Manchester at the start of the 2014/2015 season, and as one of the youngest players on the program he really impressed. Zaan is a complete professional, both on the pitch and off the pitch, working hard in every aspect of the programme and being totally focused on success. During his year at EduKick Manchester, Zaan caught the eye of a few of the coaches during the PFA sessions at Blackburn Rovers, and the attention of the scouts during the UK football trials. Zaan's development during his first program was fantastic due to his ability to learn, take on board feedback and work hard to improve. All the work rewarded Zaan with the Young Player Of The Year award for 2014/2015 and then his efforts were rewarded during his summer break with him being selected for his National U16's side. During August 2015 Zaan travelled to the SAFF U16's Championships in Bangladesh where he represented and captained the Maldives.


In their warm up games, they have been doing well, with a 5-1 victory and Zaan getting on the score sheet.




Cristian Cantero, Puerto Rico


Christian was recently selected for his full men's national side, Puerto Rico in a friendly V Canada.Christian proved he was one of our most committed players over the two year period he was with us working hard and developing tremendously along the way. At the end of his time with EduKick whilst Christian hadn't secured a UK football contract he had achieved outstandingly in his academics and looked to progress returning to the UK the following year with our partner college Myerscough to complete a foundation degree in sports coaching. Whilst doing this Christian continued with his football, playing a little with a local non-league side Bamber Bridge and keep up with his training.All that hard work finally paid off when Christian returned home and received his call up. A great achievement for Christian, representing his country at the game he loves.




Carlos Acuna, Venezuela


Carlos is currently part of Trujillanos FC U20 squad. Trujillanos FC are a professional club in the Primera División in Venezuela. Carlos attended the EduKick Manchester and was a valuable part of the of the Edukick team. His performances in training and games were always top level and he showed that he had ability in every training session. During his time in Manchester Carlos studies English and became very proficient and fluent. After leaving the Edukick program for the Christmas break to head back home to Venezuela Carlos had trials with several clubs near his home town and decided to accept Trujillanos's offer instead of returning to the UK and now he is living his dream.



Sam Zimmermann, Switzerland
