St Andrew's Academy are proud to host Derby's annual Futures Fair. This event is aimed at providing young people and their families with the opportunity to explore different post 16/19 provisions within Derby City and the wider Derbyshire area. This year's event hosted 18 different education providers and social provisions and provided a valuable opportunity for young people from across the city to discover more about their options after they finish school.

The event takes place towards the beginning of the Autumn Term to support young people and their families to make informed decisions about their future, ahead of their annual EHCP review. This ensures that students who are of school leaving age are best prepared to make choices about what they wish to do after their time at school has finished.

Students from St Andrew's also ran a very popular cafe at the event, utilising the skills they have been learning at their work placements.
