Our Story

Footy School & Stopsley Sharks F.C. is based in Stopsley, Luton, and is here to provide children of all abilities the opportunity to play football, in a fun, inclusive and safe environment, understanding teamwork and developing individual skills every session. 

Footy School

In 2016 Footy School was started with a simple focus in mind: Fun for all. Enjoy the game. Whoever you are. Whatever your ability.

A skills and development based football programme for all to enjoy and have fun with. With both outdoor (grass and astro turf surface depending on the time of year) and indoor training facilities (hard court), a varied approach can be taken in us teaching your child football. 

We have team skills classes and 1:1 development based programmes also. Contact us for more information.

Stopsley Sharks F.C.

In 2018 Stopsley Sharks F.C. was established by a great team of people, to help support more football opportunities locally and ensure enjoyment for players wanting to be involved in a match environment and develop further skills and knowledge of the game.

Stopsley Sharks F.C. is affiliated by the Bedfordshire Football Association and has multiple coaches on their official England DNA learning pathways with the Football Association. Stopsley Sharks F.C. is currently in the Chiltern Sevens Junior League. 




Our Philosophy: 

Always deliver football sessions in a fun, safe and positive environment.


We will develop all players individual skills and abilities while continually building their confidence, knowledge and understanding, including what teamwork means and how important it is.

Our Training Sessions

Each session at Footy School is 60 minutes and always has a focus on dribbling, passing, shooting-including teamwork and match scenarios.

The great thing is, while the kids are having lots of fun with the various sessions provided we are teaching them some fundamentals of the game.

From movement (in and out of possession) or attacking and defensive awareness in changes of team to team possession (transition), the sessions we provide are developing all of these areas naturally. Sessions include;


*Fun skills arrival sessions, which develop in to...


*Fun match scenario sessions, which develop in to...


*Fun 1 v 1's, 2 v 2's, 3 v 3's etc depending on age group inc. mini match 5 v 5, 6 v 6

Booking cannot be taken on the day due to numbers of children and the relevant forms that need completing prior to 'Footy School & Stopsley Sharks F.C.' class so please get in contact to reserve a place and avoid disappointment.


Just like a gym membership, the monthly price is the same regardless of sessions attended. The only exception to this is during extended periods we do not have sessions, for example, around end of season break.
