Programmes of Excellence

Fern Hill fosters an atmosphere in which knowledge means more than the accumulation of basic concepts, skills and facts. Our educational programme is comprised of strong academics, broad-based social development and some signature programmes. Parents tell us that our commitment to a well-rounded education is what sets our school apart.

We never know where passion will find its source so we supplement our core academic programme with a myriad of extras that ensure each child encounters a broad range of experiences.
