Chelsea Foundation have joined forces with The Hayesbrook School to offer an exciting opportunity for their students.

Based in Kent, The Hayesbrook School is a secondary school for boys as well as a mixed sixth form with academy status.

Foundation coaches will be based full-time at the school, with a permanent office, and will work together will the staff and students from September 2019 through to July 2020.

The coaches will deliver football sessions to students and take the lead with the school’s football team, providing coaching and managing them for their fixtures throughout the academic year.

As part of the new collaboration, the Foundation will also offer Soccer Schools and Football Development Centres and provide opportunities for the students to gain their level one coaching badge, with the possibility of openings to be employed by the Foundation to enable them to put their coaching experience and skills into practice.

Steve Tapley, the Foundation’s assistant development manager, said: ‘We are delighted to start an association with the Hayesbrook School and we hope it leads to a very positive collaboration.

‘We are looking forward to working with all the students and staff at the school.’

Daniel Hatley, executive principal at The Hayesbrook School, added: ‘We are delighted to be starting our new relationship with the Chelsea Foundation.

‘The programme will offer an additional and exciting opportunity for our students as part of their curriculum experience.’
