Football

  • U13A IAPS Football team

Football is taught as part of the games curriculum in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and is run via club sessions in Years 7 and 8. Both girls' and boys' teams play an extensive range of fixtures, both locally and nationally, as friendlies and cup matches. Pupils have one lesson a week during the autumn term and the senior boys also have a weekly club activity throughout the autumn and spring terms.

In the autumn term U13 boys play in the National Independent Schools 6-a-side Tournament and the ISFA National 11 aside cup. U13 and U12 boys, plus the U13 girls, all play in the ESFA National Knockout Tournaments and U11 boys and girls enter 6-a-side Regional Tournaments leading to National Finals.

In the spring term U13, U12 and U11 boys play local teams after school in leagues and regular fixtures. We also host tournaments at U10 A + B and U9 A + B team level.

We often have pupils playing for Football League Academy teams and the school works closely with parents and clubs to manage this commitment.
