Elite, soccer experience in England

The Paris Saint-Germain Academy offers a fantastic soccer experience for International and UK Students aged 8-17. The PSG Academy England offers a variety of all-inclusive soccer programmes delivered by our PSG trained coaches. Our academy coaches focus on discipline, competition and enjoyment.

The Paris Saint-Germain Academy runs weekly soccer camps, available from one week up to six weeks. During the soccer camps players will learn to play the PSG way – maintaining possession and controlling the game. Paris Saint-Germain values the importance of encouraging players to work together and enjoy possession of the ball. Each soccer player will have the opportunity to develop their ball mastery, dribbling, passing, shooting and aerial skills throughout the soccer camp and will have the chance to show off their skills during game play every day. At the end of the course every player receives a certificate of attendance along with a very important individual Progress & Development report. The Progress Report will give kids the feedback that they need to develop soccer skills and their overall method… until they return back to the PSG Academy England.

All Coaches are fully qualified, First Aid trained and DBS Checked.

Football stadium tours (Manchester City FCLiverpool FC, Manchester United, Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC & The home of English Football – Wembley) will take place most weeks as an additional to compliment this academy and can be booked in advance.

This is a pivotal movement for English and International soccer to ensure that we are developing players to reach their fullest potential technically and socially.

Barnard Castle summer school is located in the traditional market town of Barnard Castle in the beautiful region of County Durham, in the North East of England.

Barnard Castle town sits near the river Tees and is named after the 12th century castle around which it grew. The town is very popular with tourists as it provides a great base to explore the stunning surrounding countryside and partake in walks and bike rides along Teesdale Way, The Durham Dales and even the North Pennines. Furthermore, the famous Lake District is only 1 hour away from the school.

The larger town of Darlington is approximately 25 minutes away by car. Darlington is also a market town which is famous for its involvement in the world’s first passenger rail journey. This is celebrated at The Darlington Railway Centre and Museum.

Darlington is also home to Raby Castle, one of England’s ‘finest Medieval castles’. The castle’s history dates back almost 1000 years and visitors can view the spectacular rooms of the castle, take a walk in the walled gardens and explore the 200-acre deer park which is home to a variety of wildlife.

The city of Durham is a historical city approximately 45 minutes north of Barnard Castle summer school. The city is home to one of Britain’s oldest universities- Durham University which was established in 1832. At the university you can visit their Botanic Garden with woodland and tropical plants and the Oriental Museum.

Durham Castle built in the 13th century has since become home and part of the university before becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987Durham Cathedral is also part of the Durham World Heritage Site. Built in 1093 to house the shrine of St Cuthbert, the cathedral is renowned for its grand Romanesque architecture, it is no surprise that it featured in two Harry Potter films!


At Barnard Castle summer residential camp students stay in rooms of two to five beds per room with shared toilets and showers. There are plenty of showers and toilets available which are all cleaned and maintained regularly.

We make every effort to ensure that rooms are shared with children of a different nationality and of a similar age so that they continue speaking English outside of the classroom and make new friends. Parents may request for their child to share with a particular friend(s) and this will be considered but cannot always be guaranteed.

There is Visit Sitea social room in each boarding house where children can watch TV/DVDs, listen to music, play board games etc. Children usually relax in the social room with a hot chocolate drink before bedtime. Our professional and experienced staff stay in the boarding houses to ensure safety and 24-hour supervision.



Students eat their well balanced meals in the impressive dining hall on site. The catering team serve a variety of healthy and balanced meals to cater for all tastes. Hot and cold food is served as well as fruit, salad and desserts. There is always a vegetarian option and special dietary requirements will be catered for.
