This is a very exciting year for The de Ferrers Academy as we prepare to open our brand new Sixth Form campus to students in September 2018.

Our Sixth Form campus is a new, dedicated facility in the centre of Burton on Trent - just a five minute walk from the train station. We are exceptionally proud of the Sixth Form’s achievements over the years, and this is only set to get better with our new facilities.


We are delighted to announce that we are now in a position to be able to launch the open door event for our new Sixth Form Campus.

The event on Monday 23rd April 2018 will run from 1:00pm until 7:00pm and will provide an opportunity for potential and current sixth form students to visit the site and have a look round the facility with parents and carers.


Last year we achieved our best ever results for the fifth year running and are welcoming record numbers of students into the Sixth Form from the surrounding area.

As well as our new building, we also offer students a great range of over 30 subjects, guidance and support to ensure you achieve your potential, and extra-curricular activities to help you develop your personal interests as well as your academic knowledge.

Our students go on to great things, and we look forward to supporting you to be the best you can be.

Make sure you come and visit us at our new campus in Burton town centre
