Welcome to Blackfriars Further Education Academy. Through this prospectus we hope you gain a flavour of what we have to offer. The pictures of the students certainly illustrate why I am so proud to be Head of such a fantastic place.
Blackfriars FE Academy provides an outstanding education for pupils aged 16-19 years and to a small group of pupils aged 19-21 years as part of a sub-contracting arrangement with Stoke-on-
Trent College. We provide a highly differentiated programme of study for pupils with a range of physical, learning, medical and sensory needs. Blackfriars FE Academy is part of a Multi-Academy
Trust: Shaw Education Trust along with Blackfriars Academy, The Coppice School and Walton Hall Community School.
Our Academy ensures ‘Access for All’ and we provide the best resources and specialist facilities for all our young people. We are a safe, caring and friendly community with an emphasis on academic success alongside personal and social development. The curriculum is tailored and personalised to the interests and abilities of each individual person and all of our students are
extremely well supported towards the next steps in their lives by a dynamic and highly skilled staff team. Active partnership and collaboration with parents/carers and our local community, ensure that all pupils can fulfil their potential and aspire to be the best they can be. The excellent staff team at Blackfriars FE Academy have a desire to improve outcomes for young people with special needs and bridge the gap between school and the outside world.
“Pupils are proud to go to the Bucknall site, enjoying the ‘college’ atmosphere and responsibilities for organising themselves and being more independent. They particularly enjoy their contributions through the enterprise and charity work they do.”
