Ipswich Town Foundation & Cromwell Sixth Form are delighted to announce an exciting partnership from September 2022 to launch a brand new Sixth Form Football and Education Programme.

Students have the chance to combine their passion for football with education whilst joining an inspirational Sixth Form with high expectations and a desire to achieve excellence.

Students will represent both Ipswich Town Foundation and Cromwell Sixth Form in a comprehensive elite fixture programme whilst wearing the famous blue and white kit against equivalent sides from the likes of Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic and Brentford.

Students will have the opportunity to be part of the Education Programme alongside their studies of A Levels and Vocational qualifications, with the timetable carefully designed to allow students to thrive both academically and in their football, respectively.

This unique opportunity provides further flexibility where players will not need to be tied to a particular club – our Football and Education programme looks to complement existing grassroots football provision and allow players to continue playing for their current teams.

Heather Paul, Director of Sixth Form, said:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Ipswich Town to enable students in Chatteris and the surrounding areas to combine elite football with the Sixth Form studies with us.”

Jason Curtis, Head of Community, added:
“After the success of our Portman Road programme, we were keen to add further provision. The partnership with Cromwell Community College and Sixth Form will allow more students to access a blend of first-class education alongside outstanding football provision.”
