Aims and Objectives
The programme was originally set up in 2002, to specifically attract school leavers between the ages of 16-18 from the London boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Lambeth. The reasons for setting up our programme were that many of our potential participants were entering into a very vulnerable period in their lives; this is owing to a high percentage of our boys narrowly missing out on professional scholarships, having also neglected their academic progress in pursuit of their football dream.
20 Years of Developing Talent
Aspire Academy has recently completed twenty years of developing young talent predominantly from the south London area, but quite often all over London. Known for creating teams that play attractive football, the academy has often upset the odds in its achievements in the fa youth Cup, providing a platform for many players to flourish in league football. We pride ourselves on the excellent level of academic attainment over the years, with many surprising their former learning institutions with their outcomes.
