The Ferrers School Aspire, Achieve, Acclaim

    Joseph has started Year 10

     At The Ferrers School there is a wide variety of subjects to choose from sentence shortened.  You are given plenty of time to decide and discuss with family and teachers.  There was a dedicated evening where my parents and I spoke to the subject teachers individually to help me make my decisions.  This relieved the stress and pressure of choosing options and I am really pleased with the subjects I have picked.  Even if you change your mind after the deadline the school is willing, wherever possible, to accommodate these changes.  It is reassuring to know how flexible options can be.

    The numerous after school activities meant I could learn more about my favourite subjects in a fun and interactive way.  I joined the school STEM club (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and took part in tournaments and events where I could put my new learnt knowledge to use.  I was lucky enough to be asked to participate in a programme called “The Brilliant Club” which introduces students to university life and learning.  Whilst experiencing the university environment I have learnt many skills which I have used to increase the standard of my work within school.  I would definitely recommend any student who gets the opportunity to take advantage of these extra curriculum activities to do so. 

    Thanks to The Ferrers School, I have been able to finish year 9 on a high and with the confidence that I have made the right decision for GCSE’s and will make a smooth transition into year 10.
