What our students say
“I learnt a lot about the principles of training on my course at Totton College, and I still refer back to that knowledge today. For me the best thing was the Football Academy – training with high quality coaches and getting to know people from outside my course was great.”
Tom Webber, First Team Analyst, AFC Bournemouth
