Fernhill School, Glasgow:
Established in 1972, Fernhill School, in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire (near Glasgow), Scotland, is a Catholic independent school for children ages 3-18, that provides a nursery and primary programme for girls and boys, and a secondary programme for girls only. The school has both a Primary and a Secondary Department, fully equipped with modern classrooms and laboratories. The Primary Department has seven single classes and accepts girls and boys throughout. The total primary roll is approximately one hundred and fifty. The Secondary Department accepts girls only and the total roll is also approximately one hundred and fifty.
Primary Department (boys & girls):
The Primary Department has eight classes staffed by fully qualified teachers who are assisted by the specialist teachers of the Secondary Department. Emphasis is placed on developing a high degree of proficiency in:
- Religious Education
- Environmental Studies
- Expressive Arts
French is taught in Primary 6 and Primary 7 by members of the Modern Languages Department. Swimming lessons are provided on a regular basis for Primaries 4, 5, 6 and 7. There are also tennis lessons for the upper Primary Classes. Outings to theatres, art galleries and many other places of interest all form an integral part of the Primary Curriculum.
Secondary Department (girls only):
The Secondary Department has a broad based academic curriculum, catering for a range of abilities. We expect that every pupil is capable, with hard work, of obtaining a good set of Standard Grades and Intermediate 2 awards at the end of Fourth Year, Highers in Fifth Year and Advanced Highers in Sixth Year.
All girls in First and Second Year follow the same broad based academic course. Biology, Chemistry and Physics are taught as three separate subjects from First Year. At the end of the Second Year option choices are offered from the majority of subjects with English, French and Mathematics remaining compulsory until the Standard Grade and Intermediate 2 Examinations in Fourth Year. It is also possible for a pupil to study the three science subjects but it is not generally advisable as it narrows the pupil’s options at a very early stage.
Religious Education and Physical Education are also taught as core subjects at every stage throughout the School. In the Fourth Year most pupils are presented for seven or eight Standard Grade and Intermediate 2 Examinations. Fifth Year pupils study four or five Highers, depending on their ability, with English being the only compulsory subject. In the Sixth Year, pupils study for further Highers or Advanced Highers or a combination of both.
The curriculum comprises the following subjects for which pupils may be presented at Standard Grade, Intermediate 2, Higher and Advanced Higher:
- Business (S6)
- Art & Design
- Mandarin Chinese
- Physical Education
Fernhill School offers an after-school care facility, which runs from 3.30pm to 5.30pm daily. Places are secured upon payment of a small deposit. After-school care involves a structured programme of homework, sport and leisure activities which are held outdoors where possible. The after-school care is managed by a professional day-care manager and nursery nurse, Mrs Janice Currie.
Fernhill School Nursery (ages 3-5 years):
The Fernhill School Nursery was launched in August 2011 for pre-school children aged 3 to 5 years. The nursery is opened during term time only, for either full-day sessions from 8.50am to 3.20pm, or half-day sessions are available.
