De Ferrers Academy
About De Ferrers Academy
Following on from 10 years as a specialist Technology College, de Ferrers became an Academy in January 2011. It has grown into a large, split-site, co-educational institution catering for the full range of students from ages 11-18. In 2015 de Ferrers became the first school of The de Ferrers Trust (a Multi Academy Trust).
There are over 2100 students on roll, including an expanding Sixth Form of 360 , and each Year 7 entry since 1985 has been oversubscribed.
The two campuses are less than one kilometre apart and the Academy day is punctuated by breaks, which allow time for travel between sites.
Years 7-9 are taught on the Dove Campus, situated in Harehedge Lane, and Years 10-13 on the Trent Campus, in St Mary's Drive. This allows students to gain all the advantages and opportunities available in a large Academy and also helps them to familiarise themselves with amenities on one campus, in the first instance. There are specialist rooms and equipment on each campus.
