Mr Knoupe oversees the welfare of the players and works with our UEFA B Licence Coach, Billy Mason, to ensure that players get the best experience at the school.

The Academy is the perfect accompaniment to academic studies, with the opportunity to develop skills such as leadership, teamwork, social skills, as well as developing footballing talent.

We are proud to have both Boys’ and Girls’ Squads, the latter being the only provision available locally for girls.

Players train each afternoon to prepare for weekly fixtures on Wednesday afternoons, competing against other local football academies.

The Millwall Academy also provides a number of experiences throughout students’ time at the school, including visiting The Den to watch the Millwall First Team and training at Millwall’s Indoor Training Centre in South London.

Several our students have gone into paid coaching work with 'Plyr' during their time at the school, whilst links with local semi-professional clubs provide an opportunity to develop football careers beyond The Archbishop’s School.

Students leaving our Sixth Form have the opportunity to pursue scholarships in the USA to continue their football careers.
