Academies

HeadStart’s Sports Academies are designed for our top sports performers and school representative athletes from the age of 10 years old and up. We currently have two sports academies, one for swimming and one for football. Academies run from 4:30-6:00 pm daily and on Saturday mornings unless announced otherwise. This development pathway creates further opportunities for children to develop skills in our core sports and in turn ensure our competitive school teams develop and are successful. We have professional Head Coaches for each Academy backed up by very experienced coaching staff in both sports.

Once a student is signed up for an academy, parents and students will be required to read the handbook and fill out a contract that demonstrates an understanding of school policies and code of conduct. A copy of the handbook and contract can be found in the downloads below.

Fees and Insurance

The academy programmes are charged at an annual fee of 20,000 Baht. The fees charged are for the training programme only which consists of a minimum of 3 and maximum of 4 training sessions per week. This fee does not include trips, events, or competitions that may fall outside of the regular academy training times.

If students compete in a school organised activity at another international school within Phuket, students are covered under school insurance policy. If students travel outside of Phuket (domestically or internationally), extra insurance will be provided by HeadStart. Due to the limited coverage of the student group accident insurance, it is highly recommended that parents purchase additional health and accident insurance for their child or children in case of emergencies.
