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 co-educational nursery class for children aged 2-5yrs and primary school, through to our all-girl secondary school, achieves academic excellence.
Fernhill School pupils can once again be justly proud of a highly successful year in public examinations this year.
Our Fourth Year pupils achieved 100% attainment at National 5 level, an amazing performance given that this was our first presentation in this new exam. Furthermore, 94% of passes were at A or B Grade.
Pupils sitting Higher examinations have achieved a 94% pass rate, with 79% at Grade A or Grade B. 10% of our Fifth year pupils achieved a fantastic 5 A Grades.
In S6 we had an outstanding 100% pass rate at Higher level and an 86% pass rate at Advanced Higher level. As a result, the vast majority of our pupils have secure places in their first choice University.
We wish our S6 leavers every success for their future studies.
SMALL CLASS SIZES, SMALL SCHOOL
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 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.
FAIR FEES & INCLUSIVITY
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.
