Walker Riverside Academy

A Rich Footballing Heritage

Walker Riverside Academy

With its very own 3G pitch and state of the art sports facilities, Walker Riverside Academy is a showpiece school that we’re proud to be a part of.

Tyneside has a rich footballing heritage and since 2019, we’ve played our part in continuing that with our Elite Football Academy at the Walker Riverside Academy.

State Of The Art 3G Pitch And Sports Facilities

Newcastle United legend and local hero, midfielder Lee Clark said: “I wish there had been something like this here when I was a lad.

“The chance to focus on and develop your football skills inside school – how great is that?”

“For young players across Tyneside dreaming of one day becoming a professional footballer, there will now be the chance to chase that dream at school with professional football coaching while also getting an education.”

Football And Education Combined

“For young players across Tyneside dreaming of one day becoming a professional footballer, there will now be the chance to chase that dream at school with professional football coaching while also getting an education,” said Newcastle United legend, Lee Clark.
