Home School Agreement

The Fermain Academy aims to provide a bespoke holistic approach to education to engage, support and achieve with every student. Through small class sizes and specifically designed curriculum pathways, students get a fresh start and are pushed to reach their full potential.


All schools and academies have a Home-School Agreement. The purpose of this agreement is to set out, in broad terms how students, parents and the academy should work together to ensure that every student has the opportunities to achieve the highest levels of attainment possible. Academy students and parents are all asked to sign this document to demonstrate that they endorse the general principles that are set out within it and to show how we all work together for the educational benefit of your child.
