Girls’ Performance Football

In association with the Chelsea FC Foundation, Mount Kelly runs a Girls’ Performance Football Programme.

The Girls’ Performance Football Programme allows selected pupils the opportunity to reach their full potential academically and athletically with outstanding coaching, support, expertise and guidance from fully qualified staff and coaches. Until now the Programme has been for girls entering Year 12 to study BTEC or A Levels. From September 2024 we are building our squad to include an U16 team and have a number of scholarships available for talented athletes who are keen to pursue their dreams on the football pitch. To ‘kick start’ the Junior Squad we are holding a Scholarship Day on Saturday 22 June 2024, to join this day please complete the entry form above. For all general enquiries about the U18 Programme please complete the application form below.

Formed in 2010, the Chelsea FC Foundation is one of the world’s leading football social responsibility programmes, using the power of football and sport to motivate, educate and inspire. In addition the Chelsea FC Foundation works on a broad range of initiatives focusing on employment, education, social deprivation, crime reduction and much more.
