Exciting Times Ahead

Exciting Times Ahead

Dear all


I cannot believe how quickly this first term is flying by.  I am thoroughly enjoying my time at The de Ferrers Academy and in a nice way it feels I have been a part of it for much longer.  I have been overwhelmed by so many positives: staff energy, students manners and engagement with their learning. One of the highlights so far was the enthusiasm for promoting DFA at it’s very best at the Open Evening in September.  A wonderful mix of students from years 7-13 along with so many staff from across all areas of the academy, showing what makes DFA such a thriving place to learn and work. We received some fantastic feedback and look forward to receiving the application for 2019 by October 31st 2019.


Another very welcomed surprise is how everyone has welcomed me into their classes and allowed me to join in with their lesson including dance, drama, PE, DT, music, The Hub to name but a few.


We are aiming to promote our events and opportunities more frequently and actively on our website, social media and through a monthly online newsletter.  As always we welcome any feedback and suggestions as to how we can improve this for everyone.

There are many exciting opportunities ahead for everyone involved with our academy to show how we ‘work hard, be kind, choose wisely’.
