Staff and students look forward to seeing prospective parents/carers and students at our Open Mornings which will be running every morning this week,Monday, 20th – Friday, 24th September, between 9am and 10.15am. There is no need to book for any of these events – just turn up!
We hope you have enjoyed the summer and students are looking forward to the start of the new academic year.
Prior to Friday 3rd September parents/carers should ensure they carry out a home Covid-19 test on their child/ren as the DfE guidance states that students should do three tests in total, with two of them on the school site. If you require spare tests, please email: email@example.com and arrange to collect them on Wednesday 1st or Thursday 2nd September between 9am and 3pm.
Transition day and transition evening this year were once again very different events to what we are used to. Despite the virtual event, our new Year 7s (and their adults) embraced the challenge and helped contribute to a highly successful evening and day.
Last month at Fearnhill we marked Pride Month with a competition. The idea for the competition came from Macie, one of our Anti-Bullying Alliance members. Here’s her report of how the competition went:
Our Library is now open to all students at lunchtimes.
Every student in Years 7 and 8 now has one timetabled Library lesson a fortnight and the Library is open to students in Years 7 and 8 every Monday and Tuesday lunchtime.
Detailed information about the assessment arrangements for awarding GCSEs, BTECs and A Levels in individual subjects has been sent to parents of Year 11 and 13 students.
Due to our students missing so much schooling over the last few months, we have decided that it would not be prudent for them to miss another day of learning for an end of term House day. As a result, the House day planned for Friday 26th March will be postponed. Instead, students will have a FULL day of normal lessons with school closing at 2.50pm/2.55pm and not 12pm as would normally happen on the last day of term.
We are so looking forward to welcoming our students back next week.
On Monday 8th March we welcome Years 7, 11, 12 and 13 and on Tuesday 9th March (all other years).
Fearnhill School is looking forward to Celebrating National Careers Week next week, 1st-6th March.
Please read the following as a guide to how National Careers Week can support your young person/people both now and in the future through the world of Careers Education. Explore the activities and resources available and open the doors to the amazing opportunities that lie ahead.
Fearnhill staff and students warmly invite you to join us for our first virtual Christmas Concert. Unfortunately, performing to a live audience is not an option at the moment. However, our students have been working hard in the background practicing and rehearsing in music and drama and are proud to present this virtual concert for you all to enjoy.
On Wednesday, 4th November we held our Post 16 Information Evening as a virtual event for Year 11 students.
On Thursday 17th September 2020 we had our first virtual Open Evening here at Fearnhill.

Fearnhill Open Evening will be virtual this year. Join us via a link on the school website at 6.30pm on Thursday 17th September, to hear the headteacher’s speech and have the opportunity to ask questions in a live Q&A session with a panel of students. A series of short videos will also be available over the coming weeks, to introduce each faculty in the school and allow you to experience ‘a day in the life’ of a Fearnhill student.
