New multi-purpose study centre unveiled
After three months of work, FCV International Football Academy’s new multi-purpose study centre has opened its doors for the new season.
Located on the grounds of the Garden House, the centre is easily accessible for FCV Academy students and allows them to complete independent studies, collaborative work, and group projects.
The centre, built with support from the Lincolnshire Growth Hub, has capacity for 18 students, and was ready to welcome this year’s cohort who started on the 9th of September.
The grand opening was also in time for the start of new football season for FCV Stamford teams, who will use the centre’s modern technology to discuss on-field strategies and tactics and conduct video analysis.
In addition to football development, FCV Academy provides the opportunity for high quality education, including GCSE’s, BTECs, A Levels and degrees, in partnership with education providers.
With so much going on at FCV Academy, it’s the flexibility of the new study centre that has particularly pleased Managing Director Graham Starmer.
“I’m very happy with it,” he said. “It’s great multi-purpose facility for the students, some of whom are already using it.
“It will really add to the learning experience in more ways than one, for example, we can start using it to deliver sessions for academic study groups. And in terms of football, the coaches and players will find it invaluable.
“It uses an area of the Garden House that was being wasted and having this kind of facility onsite was key; it completes the boarding house.”
Everyone at FCV Academy would like to thank the Lincolnshire Growth Hub for supporting the funding of the new build.
