City Centre School
Our City Centre school is just a few minutes walk from the Manchester transport hub of Piccadilly Gardens. The City centre school, located in Brook house, Spring Gardens, Manchester, is modern, light and comfortable. With 7 classrooms and two student lounges, there is plenty of space for players to study and relax.
All our school staff are available all day and every day in case you have any questions or need help or advice.
When enrolling and attending the IH Manchester football programme, you are enrolling on an educational study programme as a full time student. Therefore, any students who are attending the programme from outside of the EU and have been granted leave to enter the UK by a student visa are not allowed to access public funds nor are they allowed to work in the UK, either paid or unpaid.
Working would include playing professional football for a club in the UK or amateur football for an amateur FA registered football club. Throughout the programme IH Manchester arrange a variety of experiences for students to attend scouting opportunities with clubs in the UK. Should a non EU visa student be successful in being scouted by a professional or amateur club in the UK, it would be the responsibility of the club and the individual player to ensure that they have secured the relevant UK work visa and permissions for this. We also only recommend doing this following the successful completion of the student’s course of study and with full compliance with the terms of their UK student visa.
