Plumpton College Jeremy Kerswell commented: “Having Lewes FC as a partner celebrates equal opportunities for young people to improve their skills at a high performing club, whilst gaining qualifications taught by an outstanding teaching team at our 800 hectare campus. Students will also have the option to gain additional qualifications including football coaching and professional development to guide them into a career pathway.

Boys Academy

In 2018, the club was unable to continue its Boys' Academy due to funding changes from central Government.

However, we are now in a position to reopen our Boys Academy from September 2020. This will also be in partnership with Plumpton College, so if you are currently in Year 10, please contact academy@lewesfc.com and we will get back to you later this year when details are in place.

Harry Reed is a recent graduate from the Lewes FC Boys' Academy and now a first team regular:

"When I joined the Boys Academy, I was told that there was a pathway for the best all the way through to the First Team. And that is exactly what has happened for me. I'm now a regular in the men's First Team and the sky's the limit.”
