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

Cabinet Secretary for Education & Lifelong Learning, Fiona Hyslop, spoke about class sizes to the Scottish Parliament in 2007 and made the following statement:

“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 small school roll, which stands at just 250 pupils, 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.
