Welcome to The de Ferrers Academy

The de Ferrers Academy Sixth Form is a thriving and exciting environment in which to study. Students here are able to study in a friendly and supportive environment where we have the highest expectations for all of our students.

The destination of our students after studying here at The de Ferrers Academy is a testament to our success. Last year, we had one student go on to study at the University of Oxford and many others at the elite Russell Group Universities.

We continue to push the boundaries and are continuously aiming to do better.We are a leading edge Sixth Form, being the first in Staffordshire to issue all of our students with an iPad. The use of iPad technology will transform teaching and learning, making lessons more interactive and more engaging. The Sixth Form is a happy environment and we want every student to reach their true potential. The de Ferrers Academy Sixth Form truly is a wonderful place to study.

About us

The de Ferrers Academy values its Sixth Form students and places great importance on the contribution that each individual student makes to the wider Academy community. We seek to develop the whole individual and foster a strong sense of community by providing opportunities for them to make positive contributions and make a real difference. They will have many opportunities to assist with the social and academic development of our younger students. Sixth Form students are role models in everything they do and are expected to set an excellent example to all students, at all times.

We strive to provide an environment in which students experience the right balance of supportive guidance and independence. We challenge Sixth Form students to take responsibility and exercise leadership for themselves and their own learning. Students are expected to take increasing responsibility for their learning and management of their time.

We have a team of staff in the Sixth Form who are very experienced, and a personalised curriculum which provides individual support for all students. We believe that our Sixth Form will provide the right opportunities for all students to achieve success.
