Head Teacher’s Welcome

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website and the information within. We are proud to refer to our school, its students and staff as the ‘Fernwood Family’. Our 2019 Examination results were excellent. Students from all backgrounds and abilities performed extremely well. But we are much, much more than a centre of academic excellence.

Our ethos of care and discipline leads to high achievement. Our discipline is very firm whilst at the same timing aiming for students to appreciate that self-discipline is a key to their future success and contentment. Visitors always comment on how polite, courteous and self-confident our students are. I am immensely proud of the students.

As you are aware our Year 7 intake will increase in September 2020. Our catchment will not change. At the moment we have too many children in catchment who are unable to obtain a place. This situation will ease that pressure. It will be wonderful to ensure that more children receive a well rounded education.

We aim to ensure all students feel cared for as part of our richly diverse community. We are always striving to improve and will never be complacent. I hope you find the website informative and that it provides a clear sense of our values and the opportunities afforded to our students of whom we are most proud.
