Small Class Sizes


Small class sizes are at the core of Fernhill School’s philosophy.

For children, being a member of a small class can be fundamental in early learning and development and can form solid foundations for the future.

Fernhill School’s small class sizes allow teachers to spend more time with children individually and with small average class sizes throughout the school – which rank well under the Scottish average of twenty-three – you can be sure that your child will receive the attention and high standard of education that they deserve.

At Fernhill School, we promise that our class sizes will never exceed eighteen pupils.

We want our pupils’ questions to be listened to and answered, and in a small class, no hand goes unseen and no voice unheard.

Our small class sizes allow children to thrive in a productive learning environment where any negative behaviour or educational issues are spotted and resolved quickly.

Fernhill School believes in maintaining small class sizes from nursery level all the way through to secondary school, meaning that your child will receive a consistently excellent standard of education throughout their entire time at our school.
