We have partnered with the world-famous Tottenham Hotspur to offer Notley High School and Braintree Sixth Form students a fantastic opportunity to develop a career in the sports sector. Our partnership with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club provides male and female students with insight and experience into the coaching process and helps further develop and support elite sports performance.

Notley High School students have already visited Tottenham Hotspur’s Training Centre and will also get the opportunity to work at high-profile premiership games such as being a ball assistant. In addition, multiple Braintree Sixth Form students have been put forward for places with the Coaching Excellence Centre at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
