The Fermain Academy opened as a brand-new Alternative Provision free school in September 2015 and underwent a £1.6m building project to extend and refurbish the entire building. With facilities to cater for up to 60 students aged 13-16 at any given time, the academy is a safe place of learning for those who, for whatever reason, have become disengaged from mainstream education.

Whatever the amount of time a student spends at The Fermain Academy, they are guaranteed a structured and positive learning experience, and an outstanding dedicated team able to provide emotional support in a safe and supportive environment.

At The Fermain Academy we live by the following core principles, which run through everything we do:

• We provide a supportive environment to allow all students to learn and develop in their own way to reach their full potential

• We prepare students for reintegration into mainstream education, where it’s appropriate to do so

• We improve each student’s behaviour and attitudes towards their peers and adults

• We reinforce each student’s self-esteem, self-confidence and integrity.
