Thu 12 Jan 2023 - posted by Dan

We are delighted to announce our brand-new partnership between Denbigh School Football Academy and Milton Keynes Dons Sport & Education Trust (SET). Denbigh Football Academy, which was established in 1999, will be joining forces with MK Dons SET from September 2023. 

The programme, which will sit as part of the Boys Talent Pathway at the club. Will allow players, the opportunity to train and compete in a high-performance environment at MK Dons.

Malcolm Lay, Football Academy Director at Denbigh, said: “We have been working informally with MK Dons and MK Dons SET for many years, with a large number of our Academy Graduates going on to work within the club, so it seems right that we establish a more formal partnership. As the most established Post-16 provider of Football Education within Milton Keynes we can offer players already within the development system access to Denbigh’s first class education offer, as well as extending the wider football opportunities to students on our Football Academy programme”.

James Gibb, Boys Football Pathway Manager at MK Dons SET, added: “The partnership with Denbigh School Football Academy will be a great addition to the Boys Talent Pathway. We will look to provide players access to an excellent full-time football education and football academy programme. We look forward to working with Denbigh School and prospective players, supporting their journey in further education as they transition into senior football”.

To find out more about this partnership as well as the wide variety of academic courses on offer at Denbigh School come along to the forthcoming Sixth Form open evening on Wednesday 18th January.
