Visiting Fernhill

Choosing a  school for your child can be difficult. When you visit us, we will cover a wide range of topics concerning your child’s education and will ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

P7/Transitus is an important year at Fernhill School. Our P7 class spend one third of their time in Fernhill School’s Secondary Department, which makes the transition from Primary to Secondary much smoother. If you are applying for a place in P7/Transitus for your child, you will be shown our current P6 and P7 classes as well as our Secondary Department and whole school areas.
There are two entry points into P7/Transitus, in either January or August. For entry in January, children will be invited to attend an Assessment Day with Primary 7 where they will spend their day at Fernhill School learning about the school and getting to know their peers. During that day, they will be assessed in Mathematics and Language. For entry in August, children will be invited to a similar Assessment Day, but with Primary 6.
Should your child’s application be successful, you will then be invited to begin the enrolment process. You can find out more about Fernhill’s enrolment process here.
 S1
If you are applying for your child to join Fernhill School in S1, you will be shown our Primary 7 class, our Secondary Department and whole school areas on your visit. While pupils from Fernhill School’s Primary Department are offered automatic entry before the Entrance Examination takes place in January, admission to our Secondary Department is by Entrance Examination for pupils applying from other schools. Any remaining places are then offered to pupils from other schools, based on their performance in the examination.
Should your child’s application be successful, you will then be invited to begin the enrolment process. You can find out more about Fernhill School’s enrolment process here.
 S2
If you are applying for your child to join Fernhill School in S2 – S6, you will be shown our Secondary Department and whole school areas during your visit. Vacancies at these stages in Fernhill School’s Secondary Department occur occasionally and are filled each year as a result of interview and Entrance Examination. Therefore, should places be available, your child will be invited to sit examinations in Mathematics and English.
