the Toulouse Football Club does not only invest in the transfer window. Wednesday 20 October 2021, the club which firmly occupies the chair of League 2 inaugurated its teaching high school called “Toulouse FC Education”. This new school is based on an educational model that reconciles sport and schooling.

A high school located near the former AZF site

This new private high school in Téfécé is located at 118 route d’Espagne, not far from the Oncopole and the former site of the AZF factory. It will allow students to benefit from an internship and externship formula.

Before this inauguration, the players of the training center had a tradition of being educated at the Bellevue high school.

Reconciling high-level sport and education

For this project, the TFC has linked up with the group Sports Etudes Academy (SEA), a privileged school partner for a large number of sports structures.

This establishment “will set up a program ensuring both good time management to obtain the best sports and school performance, the monitoring of National Education programs, the enhancement of the efforts and skills of students, personalized supervision, support towards autonomy or even the creation of exchanges and consultation between teaching teams and families, ”indicates the Departmental Council, a partner of the club and its foundation.
