Fermaine Academy on track for July expansion

Macclesfield MP, David Rutley, has visited the town’s newest school, to see progress in the construction of its new school building.

The Fermain Academy, which opened its doors in September 2015, is a free school based on Beswick Street. The school caters for students aged between 13 and 16 years old, the academy is a safe place of learning for those who, for whatever reason, have become disengaged from mainstream education.

While the new building is being completed, the school continues to provide teaching for 28 children, and this number will increase to 40, once the building, funded by a £1.5 million investment, is completed in July.

David also met with the Academy’s Principal, Nic Brindle, to discuss the objectives of the school, and how it is hoped that the teaching and environment being offered will provide students with an opportunity to reconnect with education and learning.

Following the visit, David said, “I was very pleased to be able to visit the Academy, and speak to Nic about the positive progress being made during its first year. The Academy offers a different type of learning to support its students, and the new building shall certainly contribute to this. I look forward to keeping in touch with the Academy in the months and years ahead.”
