Academy graduate, Elliot Howells who has been within the academy for three years completing both a Level 2 and Level 3 qualification says “Throughout my time at Needham Market Academy there were lots of great experiences and life skills that I will take with me throughout my career.

I worked hard in the classroom over the three years to finish with a final grade of DDM which has allowed me to study Business Marketing and Management at the University of East Anglia this coming September.

The staff supported me fully through my academic studies however more so through an injury which impacted my football development. I will always be grateful for the platform Needham Market Academy has provided me over the last 3 years.”

Academy graduate, Taylor Tingley says “As a person with a passion for football, Needham Market Academy provided me with the facilities that I needed to succeed within the sports department.

As well as this, the staff and teaching facilities enabled me to academically fulfil my full potential. I have left Needham with a level 3 extended diploma in sport gaining grades Distinction*, Distinction, Distinction and the confidence to start a Sports Business Management degree at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I would like to thank the staff and coaches at Needham Market Academy for their support and encouragement throughout the two years I spent there.”
