Welcome to Fearns Community Sports College.

Fearns is a fully inclusive, comprehensive school which caters for pupils from 11–16.  As a small school, we are able to give individual attention to all our pupils and ensure that their needs are met whatever their background or ability.  We have fantastic role models of all ages in our school and many of our pupils are actively involved in the wider community through leadership. 

We are driving improvements with a clear focus on raising expectations and standards.  With a fully committed set of staff, governors, supportive parents and well-behaved pupils, we have the ingredients to go from strength to strength.  All of our pupils are unique and we want them to gain the best possible education at Fearns which will give them the keys to the future in our rapidly changing society.

We encourage every pupil to go further, faster and higher to be the person they need to be.  Through pupil voice, we have recently reviewed our school values to promote and incorporate our wider British Values.  These are at the heart of our school ethos.  We are an ambitious, caring and proud school.  We are considerate, tolerant and respectful to all in our positive, organised and dedicated community.  We are a school which celebrates success together.   

Come and look round the school at any time to see us in action and decide for yourself.
