As Head Teacher I am delighted and very proud to present Fernwood School to you. I hope on reading our website you will be excited about the many excellent opportunities we offer our students. Fernwood has a long tradition of providing an outstanding education and enjoys an excellent reputation in the City of Nottingham
Fernwood is a high performing, 11-16 multi-cultural school recognised by Ofsted and the DfE for excellent academic standards and outstanding care and discipline. The school achieved Leading Edge status for excellent practice in 2004 and became a Specialist Technology College in 2005 and a Specialist School in Mathematics and Science in 2010. We are also a recognised centre of excellence for Languages, Expressive Arts and Sport.
Fernwood works in direct partnership with Bilborough College securing a number of places annually for students to study a wide range of courses including A levels and the International Baccalaureate. Recent figures show that a very high proportion of our students’ progress to Higher Education courses, many securing places at top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. The school offers equally strong vocational routes into further education and training.
Each child in our community is unique and precious, equally valued for their culture and contributions. We have very high expectations of all; hard work and self discipline, courtesy and respect are all key values which we instill in children right from the start.
