Is your child on course to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo? Or do you just want to get them out of the house and use up some of the never ending energy they seem to have? Either way taking your son or daughter to a football school is a great way to keep them active and for them to make new friends. There is always something on for all ability levels, with sessions running during term time and camps in the holidays. But with all this choice, which one do you go to? Well, we have selected what we think are the best football schools in London.

Samba Soccer Schools - Across London
Samba Soccer Schools was set up by Coach Nilio in reaction to seeing so many youth coaches screaming at their players and ultimately forgetting what football is all about.

Their London soccer schools have a two-fold purpose. The first is football; to teach children how to play with the flair and freedom that epitomises the Brazilian game. The second is social development and using football, they aim to instil confidence, knowledge and joy in players.
