Transition​​​​​​​

Welcome to The de Ferrers Academy.   We are delighted that you have chosen to join us.   We believe our academy offers a superb learning environment for our students from 11-18 years.

We are very proud of the high expectations we have across our academy that underpins our success.   Our staff are committed to delivering the highest quality education, whilst our extensive pastoral support enables students to nurture their talents and helps them to achieve their full potential.

It is a real pleasure and honour to head up the team.   The de Ferrers Academy is my sixth school and my second Headship in my educational career.   I want students and staff to enjoy coming to our academy and for us all to become a highly effective team; striving to be the very best we can be.   I want us all to be proud to be a part of de Ferrers and be proud to celebrate our wide and varied achievements.

We hope you find our academy warm and welcoming.   If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.

Mrs K D Hardy
