Vision & Aims - The de Ferrers Trust

The de Ferrers Trust is a Multi Academy Trust comprising three Secondary Academies and four Primary Academies, currently based in Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

Our vision is to ensure the children and young people in our care have the opportunity to fulfil their potential through achieving highly, regardless of their ability or background. We aim to achieve this vision through:

- Delivering a high-quality education
- Recruiting, developing and retaining high-calibre members of staff
- Establishing and developing robust governance
- Ensuring financial probity and viability
- Developing a highly efficient trust infrastructure and central services
- Establishing effective systems to support the sustainable growth of the Trust

About Our School

We benefit from a strong local reputation which is the reason we have increased our admission number to 410. Our expansion has been facilitated by the acquisition of a third site for our popular Sixth Form in the town centre. This has led to a re-organisation of our students, with Year 7 and Year 8 educated at the Dove Campus and Years 9-11 at the Trent Campus, which are half a mile apart.

We were delighted by our January 2017 Ofsted inspection which emphasised the outstanding aspects of our work, including high levels of progress and attainment. We value our staff team, and this is reflected in the wide range of professional development opportunities which are offered both internally and externally. In recent years, we have developed an international reputation for learning technologies, becoming both an Apple Distinguished School and Regional Training Centre; we provide a 1-to-1 iPad programme for all students in Year 9-Year 13.

We believe that The de Ferrers Academy and Trust is a very special place to work. We have fantastic facilities and a truly supportive and skilled staff at all levels. We also believe that to get the best out of our students we need to be the best we can be as staff. We take great pride in ensuring that we all support and develop ourselves and our teams. We offer a fantastic range of staff wellbeing (Physical, Social and Emotional) and CPD opportunities at local, Trust and National levels.

Our students are a strength too. They want to learn and make the most of the opportunities on offer to them. They too take great pride in showcasing what is good about being a part of DFA.
