At Ferryhill School, young people, and their parents, can expect to receive a high quality education that aims to ‘inspire learners to succeed as enterprising individuals’. We look to blend the traditional standards of good behaviour, regular and punctual attendance, positive attitude to learning with the most modern resources, innovative practice and teaching towards challenging targets.
We work closely with students and their parents, listening to and addressing needs, raising expectations, confidence and self-esteem. We believe strongly in ” Achievement for all students” regardless of background or ability. We want the very best for the students in our care and as a college and community we are making great progress – In our last Ofsted inspection where we were graded as GOOD with many OUTSTANDING features and have recently been nominated for a Specialist Schools and Academies Trust Award for outstanding progress.
In the past 2 years almost every subject in the school has posted record GCSE examination results and government reports tell us that we are achieving in the top 7% of all schools in England. We have recently been included in the Top 100 schools in England.
