Welcome to our Scholarship programme.


Together with Helena Romanes School & Sixth Form, M.R.F.A. provides Sixth Form students the platform to learn skills and gain knowledge to start their future careers.


Our programme offers a range of A-Level courses as well as BTEC and does not limit students when it comes to their academic options.



Our Scholarship Programme is designed to combine football and education, and ensure students are getting the best experience possible.


A huge focus on our programme is succession planning and mentoring our students throughout their journey and next steps, even after the programme has finished.


Next steps is the key area that we mentor our students on and how they can take what they’ve learnt and gained to turn it into a career.

Our 2-3 year course creates some of the best memories that you will remember forever.

Grace Arnell recently completed her 2-year Scholarship Programme with M.R.F.A. and Helena Romanes School & Sixth Form has absolutely flourished during her time with us.

Grace has developed in so many areas and her game in particular has come on leaps and bound. She combined her time with us with playing for Bishops Stortford women’s team.

Not only has Grace’s football progressed, but she has also embarked on her coaching journey and undertaken her Level 1 in coaching and supported our Girls Development Centre this season.
