Ferndown Middle School
Peter Grant Way Ferndown Dorset BH22 9UP


Ferndown Middle School has been judged a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted following the inspection on the 10th and 11th January 2018. 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.

“The school provides a rounded and high-quality curriculum. Over their four years at this school, pupils enjoy rich and stimulating activities in a wide range of subjects. Pupils leave Year 8 well prepared for Year 9 and beyond.”

“The energy, vitality and high quality of middle leadership have a positive impact on teachers’ expectations. Effective planning by teachers, along with good-quality support staff, enables pupils to make good progress. They have increasingly high expectations of pupils’ learning development, with high-quality work produced in pupils’ books.”

“Pupils in all year groups, including disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, are making good and increasingly rapid progress.”

“The most able pupils are also making good progress because of more challenging activities being provided for them.”
