Ferndown Upper School Sixth Form logo

We believe that children should be curious about their learning.  Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that our students foster a passion for learning that develops high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. Our children are our best ambassadors, if you need to decide if joining the Ferndown Family is the right choice for you and your son or daughter then come for a tour and speak to our students and find out what makes Ferndown such a special and incredible place to learn.

At Ferndown we have students at the heart of everything that we do. Our vision is for everyone to have a thirst for learning. We foster an environment where children show respect and kindness to one another and the world around them and who are prepared to be future leaders.

At Ferndown Upper we want our students to grow into caring, confident, independent young people who value their education and are ambitious for their futures. Our success is based upon high expectations and outstanding support from all members of the school community. We are determined to ensure that every student achieves to their full potential. We expect excellent attendance, punctuality, high standards of uniform and mutual respect for all members of the school community - care and concern for others is central to the work that we do. But most of all we expect students to strive to achieve their best.

Our dedicated, enthusiastic and highly skilled staff work tirelessly to unlock the talents of all our students. Support and encouragement are provided at all times to help each student develop into a highly-skilled, articulate young adult with the personal qualities and academic qualifications needed to succeed in higher education and employment. We are therefore keen for our students to take full advantage of the wide range of exciting activities which the school has to offer, both within the classroom and beyond it.
