The Fulham Academy, headed by Academy Director Huw Jennings, runs along the lines of many of the English football academies as deemed appropriate by the national governing body, and recently awarded Category 1 status in the new EPPP guidelines set out by the FA. Players dealt with by the academy can be aged as young as nine years old. As part of their training, young players are guided with the aim to gain a BTEC and NVQ qualification.

The Fulham under 18's are two-time reigning champions of their league but last year also went on to win the National Academy Final beating Blackburn 2-0 with goals from Cauley Woodrow and Ryan Williams, losing to Everton at the same stage the previous year 2-1 with Ronnie Minkwitz scoring.

The under 18s are currently managed by Kevin Keen and the Under 16's by former Fulham player Mark Pembridge. It is based at Fulham's training ground in Motspur Park.
