Fernhill Secondary Department’s formula for success is: small class sizes in a small school plus a caring, inclusive ethos equals the best way to realise your child’s potential.

And with the vast majority of Fernhill pupils moving on to further education after completing secondary school, it is clear that this formula for success works for our pupils.
