    Welcome to
    The Ferrers School

    The Ferrers School has a simple yet important mission – to support our students in being the very best they can be. This extends to all they do with us whilst at school: academically; in sport; in the arts. We want all our students to aim to be the best they can, to succeed in reaching ambitious goals and then to celebrate their success – to aspire, achieve, acclaim.

    What is The Ferrers like?

    Head Boy

    Being one of three siblings, I knew more than most of my fellow prospective students about The Ferrers School - but not nearly enough to prepare me for it.  It’s a nervous time going from primary school to secondary school but from day one my teachers and the older pupils guided me and soon I settled in just fine, still not aware of how much was actually going on at the school that I could take part in.
