In September 2012, Kepier opened the Kepier Football Academy (KFA). The first of its kind in the country, where talented young footballers receive specialised coaching alongside a structured timetable of lessons; with the aim of securing a pathway into further education or a career in Professional football either on or off the pitch. Learners that are accepted into the KFA take part in a customized timetable between the hours of 8.30am and 4pm. Players are expected to fully engage in life at Kepier and will study for at least 8 GCSEs as well as attending the Kepier Football Academy and will be given a number of opportunities to develop their pathway when leaving school.
