John Ferneley College Careers Site Eteach (17456)


Here at John Ferneley College our students are our absolute priority and we support each and every one to help them reach their potential. That doesn’t just mean in the exam hall (though we believe our exam results speak for themselves), to us it’s also about our students developing the self-confidence and other important skills that will help them throughout their lives.

This supportive culture shines through in everything we do; from the way we structure our days to the design of our building.    


We care about our students and believe that every one has the right to enjoy their education in a safe and happy environment. We recognise the individuality of every one of our students and celebrate their place in our community.

The unique design features of our purpose built modern building serve as the backdrop for the very special work we do here, mirroring the focus we place on student wellbeing. Our form tutors, heads of year, and student managers are there on a day to day basis to ensure students start the day organised, energised and happy!

We believe students will only make fabulous progress when they are happy, and we work tirelessly to ensure that they have all the support they need to achieve their dreams.

Our students achieve phenomenal results, and are rightfully proud (as are we!) of the progress they make.

We consistently receive some of the best grades in the county, both in terms of the grades students achieve, and the learning journey they make. Indeed many of our students make more progress with us than in most other schools nationally. We are proud of this and it is testament to the fact that we live our vision.

We attribute our success to the fact that the students find the best reward is in making progress.
