Ferndown Middle School has been judged a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted following the inspection on the 19th and 20th June 2014. We are proud of the opportunity our school provides for our children, helping them develop, not only as a learner, but as a member of a wider community.

Here are just a few comments from our full report. You can download the full report below.

“Students’ attitudes to learning are excellent, and attendance and punctuality to lessons are very high. Students arrive at school well prepared and ready to learn.”

“From their starting points all groups of students make good progress. Attainment by the end of Year 8 in reading, writing and mathematics is above average.”

“All students are extremely polite and courteous. They respect the views of others and are always willing to help each other. Their behaviour around the school and in lessons is outstanding.”

“Teachers have good subject knowledge. Students achieve well because teachers match learning activities to students’ different abilities and interests.”
