Welcome to The Thomas Ferens Academy. I am delighted to introduce our new academy which will open its doors to students in September 2012.
Our vision is ambitious. We want the next generation of world leaders to come from The Thomas Ferens Academy and we will work hard to achieve our goal. This means we need outstanding leadership, superb teaching and high standards of learning, behaviour and achievement. It also means providing students with a huge range of opportunities to enjoy school and to become well educated for a great future.
Students, parents and the community will be at the heart of the school, as this is the key to success. I want parents to be proud to send their children to our academy and to feel that the academy is a place where their children’s lives and futures are in good hands.
The academy is very lucky to have the benefit of an outstanding group of sponsors (The University of Hull, Wyke Sixth Form College, Wilberforce Sixth Form College and Hull City Council) who will work closely with me and the governors to ensure that the academy achieves its ambitions.
We are dedicated and committed to giving you the very best.
I look forward to welcoming you.
- Juliet Strang, Principal Designate.
