‘At Ferndearle School the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils’

Welcome to Ferndearle School

Ferndearle School was established in 2001 and is registered with the DFE as an Independent Special School for pupils with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD).  The school caters for pupils between the ages of 5 and 16 (Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4) and is well equipped to provide a differentiated time table.  The School is a highly specialist provision which is experienced in catering for pupils who have difficulties due to traumatic experiences and pupils who have difficulties due to an organic disorder such as Autism, Aspergers, and other organic mild to severe Learning Difficulties or, indeed, a combination of the two.

The school provides 52 week residential placements for pupils who live in care at Ferndearle and offers day placements to pupils from the local community.

The school caters for a maximum of twenty seven full-time pupils with a high staff ratio which changes according to the needs and development of the pupils.


As a forward-thinking school we aim to prepare our students for an ever changing world by enabling them to develop critical thinking skills, global perspective and respect for core values of loyalty, compassion and honesty.

The corner stone of the education we offer, is the development of these skills. This enables our students to have success for today and be prepared for tomorrow.
