The Ferrers School is part of the successful and expanding Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust, a group of primary and secondary schools located between Stamford and Cambridge along the A1 - A14 corridor. All the schools are growing and there is a need to develop capacity, expertise and excellence in our staff body.

The Ferrers School offers opportunities to become part of a team of staff who are making a real difference to the students they teach. CMAT, which was ranked 5th across all Multi Academy Trusts nationally in 2017 in terms of student progress, is a success story that continues to grow.

CMAT is also driven by our ability to adapt to the changing educational landscape led by determined staff who bring our academies alive with their enthusiastic personalities, unshakeable work ethic and their commitment to delivering exceptional learning experiences for our children. What makes The Ferrers School, and the Trust as a whole, different is that we know how to nurture and bring out the very best in our talented staff.
