Interested in football coaching?

The Piggott School Coaching Programme and the Reading FC Community Trust are teaming up to develop talented, young coaches in the Berkshire area.

Students will receive work placements with the Reading FC Community team and, if successful, talented coaches could find employment with the club. The partnership aims to become the course of choice for sixth form learners with an interest in sports coaching.

The course is led by Andy Freeman. A former pupil of the Piggott School, he went on to play for Reading Football Club and Crystal Palace.

The Piggott School Coaching Programme is a two-year sports leadership course for sixth form students who have an interest in coaching or instructing. It has been running for seven years and has been hugely successful with many graduates going on to coach football in the UK and USA, become fitness instructors in local health clubs or go on to study at university – leading to careers in teaching or physiotherapy.

The Piggott School Coaching Programme has developed some new impressive facilities. They possess their own fully operational classroom and computer suite, a state of the art working gym managed by Nuffield Health and a brand new full-sized 3G football pitch, which is due to be completed in the coming weeks. This gives students a fantastic environment to develop the skills and knowledge they will need to forge a career in coaching.
