At Fernhill School in Glasgow, a high standard of education coupled with the promotion of positive attitudes towards learning ensures that every one of our boys and girls, from our  nursery class for children aged 2-5yrs and primary school, through to our secondary school, achieves academic excellence.

Fernhill School pupils can be justly proud of a highly successful year in public examinations.

In the benchmark Higher examinations our S5 pupils achieved excellent results with an overall pass rate of 94.1%; 82.4% of passes being A/B Grades and  65 % of Higher passes at A Grade. 

Our S4 pupils achieved excellent results at National 5 with a 100% attainment rate for the second year running.

S6 pupils have also excelled with a 100% pass rate at Advanced Higher; 78% of these results at A Grade. It is testament to our successful S6 programme that the vast majority of our pupils have secured places in their first choice University courses. We wish our S6 leavers every success for their future studies. 

All of this success is a reflection of the tremendous hard work done over the last year. The commitment shown by our wonderful pupils has been matched by the unstinting dedication of our staff, and the incredible ongoing support of our parent body. 


Children who benefit from small class sizes achieve more academically than their regular class size peers.

Small class sizes are at the core of Fernhill School's philosophy and are a major factor in our pupils' exceptional academic achievement

Former Cabinet Secretary for Education & Lifelong Learning, Fiona Hyslop, spoke about class sizes to the Scottish Parliament, stating:

“Smaller classes allow enhanced levels of pupil/teacher interaction which, in turn, contributes to giving Scotland’s young people better life chances by increasing their attainment and realising their ambition.”

Fernhill School's small class sizes provide your child with the opportunity to achieve academic excellence.

Our class size creates the ideal learning environment and with the support of our Fernhill Family, ensures that any disciplinary or behavioural issues are spotted and resolved quickly and carefully.

We believe that affordable fees, small class sizes and a strong commitment to academic excellence equals the best and most affordable private education in Scotland, irrespective of family income.

We are aware of the personal financial sacrifices that you make by choosing an independent education for your child and we are committed to making this investment in your child's future a successful one.

Fernhill School is an independent Catholic School and we pride ourselves on offering the highest standard of education for every child, regardless of religious background.

We are a registered Scottish charity and every member of our Board of Governors is a dedicated member of the Fernhill Family. We all share the same vision: to help realise the potential of the pupils of Fernhill School.
