Hello , I’m currently going to year 12 in September. And I have chosen to go to a sixth form to study Maths, Physics and biology at A levels. However, I have also joined the sixth form’s football and education program; which means that I train for 1 and half hours everyday after school and play a match every Wednesday. My main point/question is: is it possible to balance my football and A levels and achieve top grades like A stars or is it impossible. Anyone can help me please; ex A level students, current A level students or even gcse students (I just want your opinion) . Thanks.

First of all you have a very good extracurricular activity which will impress unis and employers especially if you win a football match or compete at a higher level etc.
It is recommended by some people to do an hour of revision for each subject everyday(obvs not all the time-you need breaks too). I think its doable as, since you're doing 3 subjects, you'll have more frees so use them for revision.
Studying effectively is more important that how many hours you study for.
If you struggle with something alot, spend your weekends revising that.
Hopefully this will help you!

Yes it is, just make sure you have time dedicated to revision as well as football. Does your sixth form’s football and education program not have minimum grades you have to maintain throughout the year in order to stay on i know my college do.
