Mildenhall College Academy (MCA6)

The Ipswich Town Foundation Football & Education Programme in partnership with Mildenhall College Academy is an exciting opportunity for young people between the ages of 16-18 to continue their academic, footballing and career development through Ipswich Town Football Club.

This unique and high quality experience will combine focused, small-group educational sessions with our designated education tutors alongside the opportunity to train with qualified coaches and represent Ipswich Town Football Club and Mildenhall College Academy in our football fixture programme

Students can either study A levels, Applied General subjects OR a combination of A levels and Applied General subjects across a two year period.

They will follow a carefully planned pathway of modules to provide them with a broad range of knowledge and experience whilst remaining linked to potential career pathways.

The unique learning environment created through an Ipswich Town based programme allows students to be exposed to a variety of working areas of a professional football club and its staff to enhance the delivery of core units.


Students will be required to meet the entry requirements:

A level  4 GCSE’s at grade 5+

Applied General is at least 5 GCSE’s at 4+.

Our students will have access to the fantastic new Mildenhall Hub facilities, located on the Mildenhall College Academy site, which offers a range of facilities including the Main Sports Hall and Gymnasium – from badminton to 5-a-side football to basketball and anything in between – it even has a Climbing Wall!

The Sports Centre has a brand new 3G pitch for training and fixtures. Naturally there are a number of Grass Pitches and an indoor heated Swimming Pool.

The Fitness Suite offers the very latest equipment from the Pulse Freedom Range to the latest Power Plate technology. The suite is constantly manned by staff, so there is always expert knowledge and advice at hand.
