St. Crispin’s Car Parks

Parents and carers will understand that at the end and beginning of the school day there are a very large number of young people leaving the school site.  As such we ask that parents/carers respect that we ask that private cars do not pick up students directly from the school premises.  Instead we suggest that if you are picking up your son or daughter that you agree a mutually agreeable and safe place away from the school and in consideration to our local neighbours.

Reading FC Programmme

St Crispin’s School has recently joined with Reading FC to offer an exciting programme for talented sports leaders. This course is open to male and female students who are serious about a career in sports and coaching and who are looking for a mix of studying and sporting opportunities.

Entry Requirements

5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 including English Language.

If you have not passed Maths GCSE at a grade 4 or above, this GCSE will need to be re-sat alongside the Reading FC programme.

If the course is over-subscribed, selection will be based on students meeting the academic entry requirement and then footballing ability as judged by a Reading FC official.

Course Content

This is a two year vocational programme with academic and practical elements. The programme will include two A Levels or Level 3 BTECs and a range of footballing and coaching certificates. These courses will include practical qualifications from the Football Association on coaching, safeguarding and first aid and from the Professional Football Association workshops on equality and diversity and confidence and self-esteem.

On a daily basis, students will train with Reading FC coaches to develop their football skills and coaching styles. Along with timetabled lessons, students will also compete in a regional football league and national competitions.

Once students have undertaken their safeguarding and coaching certificates, all students will lead coaching sessions in school and across the community in local primary schools or leisure centres.

Academic Subject choices

Students opting for the Reading FC course need to choose two academic subjects. The list below gives the possible subjects you could choose. Please ensure you check the above entry requirements (also found in the Sixth Form Propsectus) before you make your choice.

BTEC Application of Science Maths
BTEC Health & Social Care Music
BTEC Sport Philosophy & Ethics
Business Studies Product Design

Future Opportunities

This programme is all about employability. Successful students will leave the school with the knowledge and experience to play and coach football with the academic qualifications to step into a university. With these skills many students could find themselves working in community programmes for charities or football clubs or working in the leisure industry. Following further education, careers open to students range from PE teacher, personal trainer, football coach, or sports or football development officer.
