On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors of Ferndown Middle School, I would like to welcome you and your family to our school and website.

The website is designed to provide you with all the information you need about our school, but the best way to see the school is to arrange a visit via our school office. I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of a school which is built on our core values of Kindness, Ambition and Curiosity. These values are evident in our curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities to equip every individual to have the character, knowledge and skills to achieve a lifetime of fulfilment. The curriculum has been carefully planned to ensure it is broad, balanced and progressive to tie in with our partner schools and allow for a smooth transition for our students. We value our links with the local community and the opportunities this provides for the personal development of our students.

We value strong, committed partnerships between parents and school and believe this is crucial in our children’s development into successful young adults. Throughout their schooling children need to feel safe, both physically and emotionally, before they can begin to develop intellectually. Ferndown Middle School fosters a school culture that nurtures and supports children and believe that positive relationships underpin this. All staff are committed to the development of their teaching and have high expectations for learning, achievement and personal development.

We look forward to being an important part of your child’s journey and welcoming them into our school community.

Mrs A Barter
