Welcome to Fearns Community Sports College.

Fearns is a fully inclusive and comprehensive school which caters for pupils from 11 – 16.  We are able as a small school to give individual attention and ensure that the needs of all of our pupils are met, whatever their background or ability.  We have superb role models of all ages in our school and many of our alumni are on the worldwide stage as you can see from our website.
At present we are concentrating on raising the bar for all of our young people, with high 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. The pupils will have the strong values of empathy, tolerance, self-discipline and understanding as well as good academic results.
Come and look round the school at any time to see us in action and decide for yourself.
