Open Evening

Thinking of joining us but unable to make our open evening this year? We created a virtual Open Evening in 2020 when we were unable to host parents and pupils. It is available for you to take a look around and we are excited for you to see our school, and experience what makes Sixth Form at Ferndown Upper School so perfect for you.
