FAR Academy is a Department of Education registered Specialist Post 16 institution providing innovative, alternative education and qualifications to young people.

FAR Academy is a Specialist Post 16 Institution where students can study Functional Skills English and Maths and Business Enterprise qualifications in our  learning workshop, getting hands on with practical and theory aspects of art, design and woodwork skills in a uniquely inspirational environment. FAR Academy is a registered centre for NCFE and ASDAN qualifications.
Using skateboarding as the channel to engage young people on to the positive pathway of learning, through personal achievement and alternative education; the FAR Academy provides a unique learning opportunity which has been tailored to suit vulnerable young people who for what ever reason struggle to learn in a mainstream school. 
Aside from the physical benefits regular participation can bring, skateboarding workshops provide the opportunity to learn a gratifying skill in a supportive environment teaching the value of cooperation, respect for others, cheering each other on, and the importance of persistence after failure. Skateboarding is not essential to participation in the course but the diversity and culture of the sport forms the basis of our educational programme.
