Welcome to Fearns Community Sports College.

Fearns Community Sports College is a Lancashire Comprehensive co-educational day school which caters for children of all abilities between the ages of 11 and 16 years. We offer a wide range of courses, leading to qualifications at all levels, to match the talents and abilities of all pupils. There is also a wide range of clubs and extra-curricular activities for pupils to get the most out of their time at school.

At Fearns we set out to enable every child to do the best that they can within a structured and disciplined environment. In doing so we are always conscious of the important partnership between parents, teachers and the individual child which produces the very best educational experience.

We aim to encourage freedom of expression whilst demanding self-discipline, tolerance and understanding towards others. We aim to provide a curriculum which will prepare pupils for the future whilst supporting the very best examination results possible.
