St Paul's Catholic College
Welcome to the St Paul’s Catholic College, home of our toddler and kids football classes and club in Sunbury. S4K Football is based on the Dutch Coerver, Spanish Tiki-Taka and Brazilian Futsal Methods. We develop our children’s mini and micro motor skills, using the Montessori teaching method and the best practices from child psychology and children’s learning. Each class has a dedicated curriculum and Practice@Home book so that you can help your child to develop their skill level outside of the class.

What is S4K Academy?
S4K Football is based on the Dutch Coerver, Spanish Tiki-Taka and Brazilian Futsal Methods. The S4K Academy is the most technical skills based football development program in the market. Available to children from 6 to 14 years of age, the S4K Academy includes ball mastery and tactical match play in a once per week lesson. Academy members are able to join the S4K Football Club and play in local FA registered leagues and tournaments. Those wishing to develop into elite footballers are invited to join S4K Professional, where they will take part in classroom video match analysis, fitness and match preparation lessons each week.

This is the entry age group for our S4K Football Academy. Children are provided with their S4K Level One and S4K Level Two Practice@Home books and curriculum for skill development. They take part in 5a side teams in our S4K Football Club and play against local league sides, learning our mantras and our philosophy of skills first during match play.
At this age group, children tend to be embedded in the S4K Way of playing and this allows us to teach more sophisticated tactics and match play. Players progress onto the S4K Academy Level Three and Level Four assessments and Practice@Home books. We welcome new children at this age too and continue our focus on ball mastery and creating technically balanced players between left and right feet while playing 7a side matches in our S4K Football Club.
Children take part in our S4K Football Club, playing in 9a side matches that include the offside rule. Players progress to the S4K Academy Level Five and Six assessment stages. Children are encouraged to continue using skills in games on their left and right feet as they compete for league and cup victories in local FA registered leagues.
Children (now teens) take part in 11a side football matches against other S4K teams in our elite development fixtures as well as competing in FA registered leagues. Children move through the S4K Level Seven and Eight assessments for skill development and continue to play the S4K Way, showcasing our skills first philosophy.
