Post 16 Academy

The Ramsgate Academy is run in partnership with TSC Football Academy’s Scholarship Programme. Our sixth form football scholarship programme provides players with an opportunity to train full time alongside their academic studies. The programme is overseen by Seb Tidey, Ramsgate FC first team coach and the managing director of Total Sports Coaching. This partnership allows us to offer a wide variety of education options to the players which is one of the clubs main priorities as a charity and community focused club. Players in the programme will have the option to study a wide range of A levels and Vocational subjects.


Over the years TSC’s scholarship programme’s have helped develop a large number of players who have gone on to play semi-professional football as well as players who are now in the USA on scholarships. The aim of our Elite squad is to provide pathways for players from the area into the Ramsgate FC senior squads. Players who attend the scholarship programme will receive coaching that will help them develop as individuals to help prepare them for the potential step into senior football.

The Elite squad will form a key part in Ramsgate’s ambitions to develop more homegrown talent, they will play in a similar style to the Ramsgate senior sides to allow for an easier transition and will be constantly monitored by the first team and under 23’s management to provide pathways for players through to the first team.

Training for the Elite Squad will take place at the excellent facilities in the WW Martin Community Stadium, which will also be the venue for home fixtures.

The programme gives players the best opportunity of transitioning from youth to adult football, whilst helping them reach their potential.


The education for our scholarship programmes are held at the following schools:

St Georges School, Broadstairs

Ursuline College, Westgate

On application the players will need to choose which school best suits their educational needs and apply to study at this school, as well as attend trials for the scholarship squads.

Our partnership with these schools means that all players in our programmes have access to a variety of A-level and Vocational qualifications and have access to a great education as well as the football programme.

Players who are accepted onto the programme will be offered a place on the scholarship programme, players will then either play and train in the elite squad or one of the development squads. There will be fluid movement between the elite and development squads throughout the year dependant on performance.

The TSC Sixth form Football Scholarship is for pupils in year 12-14 and is open to both boys and girls.
