Feversham Academy was established in 1984 as an Independent Muslim girl’s school with approximately 24 pupils on roll. In 2001 the school joined the state sector as a voluntary aided school before converting to Academy status in 2011. The school now has a PAN of 120 in all year groups and will have an expected 840 on roll by 2016 (including sixth form).
Feversham Academy has consistently ranked in the first percentile in the country for value added.
In 2011 we opened Feversham First Steps Nursery, rated outstanding by Ofsted in the same year. The nursery now has more than a hundred 0 – 5 year olds on roll and continues to thrive as a beacon of best practice.
Feversham Academy was awarded teaching school status in 2012 and we have an established legal partnership with Skipton Girls High School for both our Teaching Schools; Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance. We work with over 20 key partners on improving outcomes for learners, leadership development and recruitment of teachers.
Feversham Academy is also a National Support School, the Headteacher being a National Leader of Education.
We are driven by a moral imperative, every child deserves the highest quality of education, pupils only get one chance.
The nursery was opened by Feversham Academy in 2011 with an aim to address the needs of the local community by offering outstanding early years care and education. The nursery received an outstanding judgement from Ofsted in its first year and remains a beacon of early year’s provision supported by the Local Authority and community. Due to the continuous drive and commitment from the nursery Directors and Feversham Academy, First Steps has continued to expand and grow in both size and reputation. A significant capital investment given by the Council along with a strategic reinvestment plan by the Directors has allowed First Steps to now offer care and education for over 100 children in its bespoke learning environments.
This includes three separate learning and care facilities for babies, two to four year olds and a dedicated pre-school environment with highly trained and qualified staff.
First Steps also actively supports apprenticeship pathways for young adult workers to gain valuable work experience working closely with local business and higher education providers. Staff training and development is encouraged as is work experience placement for secondary age learners.

Our proposal for an 11-16 girls Free School with a four form entry called Bronte Girls Academy (BGA) has been approved and we hope to open our doors in September 2019.
We are delighted to announce that in collaboration with the DfE and the ESFA, a site has now been secured for the new Bronte Girls Academy free school. The new secondary academy will be located in BD4 and will be built on the now empty Future House office grounds. The Free School will serve the surrounding community, offering 600 student places and will be open for the start of the 2019 academic year.
FET is currently working on the design of the school as well as the education program from the ground up, based on the most current research on how students learn best. It is a very exciting time for the Trust as we can now see all our hard work from the vision of the initial Free School bid to the reality of creating the actual finished product coming to fruition.
Queensbury Academy became an Academy and joined Feversham Education Trust in September 2016. We have been a popular choice with parents for many years. There are approximately 960 students on roll.
Queensbury Academy is a friendly, thriving and stimulating place to work and study. We expect that every student will achieve their very best. We welcome all parents to take an active part in their child’s education and encourage them to form a partnership with us to ensure their children achieve their best.
At Queensbury Academy our staff inspire, have high expectations and raise the aspirations of young people and this is supported through a system of individual advice, guidance and coaching. We put students at the heart of our plans and policies and the school’s award of Investor in Pupils is an example of this continued commitment. At the centre of our developing student leadership programme is a thriving Student Council who are increasingly informed and involved in decisions about their school.
