FAR Academy equips young people with the key skills that they need to flourish. Enquiry-based learning (EBL) lies at the heart of the FAR Academy's curriculum model. Students will learn the principally through Enterprise Projects, local businesses and surrounding community. To root studentsâ€™ learning in the real world advanced projects will involve external commissions.
