Message from the Headteacher

It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Fermain Academy website. The Academy opened its doors for the first time in September 2015 and supports students from across Cheshire East and the surrounding areas, from our base in Macclesfield.

The Fermain Academy supports individuals that struggle with conventional education and we work hard to support, engage and raise the aspirations of every student.

Through a bespoke programme of study and varied approaches to a challenging curriculum we hope to constantly promote a ‘love of learning’. As the Headteacher, I invite you to browse our website and see how we will support every student in our school community.

We improve each student’s behaviour and attitudes towards their peers and adults.


We prepare students for reintegration into mainstream education, where it’s appropriate to do so.

A Boost to Students

We reinforce each student’s self-esteem, self-confidence and integrity.
