About The Fermain Academy

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.

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
