Manchester City Football School (MCFC)

Aiglon College in partnership with Manchester City Football Club, one of the leading football clubs in the world, provides our students with a world leading football programme that aims to develop all of our students as people and as footballers.

The Manchester City Football School is not only focused on delivering football coaching, but alongside the school's educational ethos, this partnership provides lessons to the students in regard to nutrition, health and wellbeing, mindset and leadership in line with the football curriculum and as part of the Discovery in Action sessions.

Our Partnership

Our school was founded on the belief that education goes beyond the classroom and through a commitment to the natural and physical world we are able to pursue the development of personal character and the human spirit.

The Manchester City Football School likewise offers a unique programme that looks to both improve an individual’s football skills and instil the benefits of team sport, leadership skills, passion, motivation and an appreciation of nutrition and personal development.

Aiglon is the only school in Europe to establish this partnership with Manchester City. This is a real opportunity to develop a world class football programme with the rigour and dedication to excellence that is at the heart of our approach. We are really impressed with Manchester City for their work at the intersection of football and holistic education to create unique learning opportunities.

How does the programme work?

In August 2023, Aiglon welcomed Gareth Whalley as the full-time Manchester City football coach, trained and qualified to deliver their world-leading programme. This offers a deep and broad football curriculum focusing on children's individual and collective needs, regardless of their level or gender.
