Fermain Academy is ‘life changing’ for its students – Ofsted

The Fermain Academy, opened in 2015 for pupils with behavioural and attendance problems, has achieved an Outstanding report from Ofsted. The free school, specifically set up to support children who struggle within mainstream education, was praised for their ‘impeccable’ behaviour and school leadership. Nic Brindle, headteacher, said: ‘It’s a cracking report. It’s the first inspection we’ve had so we are very pleased.’ He added that the next step is to become a example for all AP schools across the country.
