Welcome to Fernwood

Mrs T. Rees - Headteacher

I feel extremely privileged to have been appointed to the position of Head Teacher at Fernwood School and there is no doubt in my mind that I have joined a very special place. The school provides an excellent education in a safe, well-disciplined, caring environment. Fernwood is an outstanding school and tops the league tables for many of the Government’s performance measures. We are, however not just about examination results, important as they are. There is a strong Pastoral Care system here which supports all aspects of the school’s work. We believe in educating the whole child and there is a wealth of opportunities available to extend learning beyond the classroom at Fernwood.If you would like to find out more about our school please feel free to visit at any time during a normal working day. You will see what the school has to offer and how happy and hardworking our young people are.
