About Fern House

Welcome to Fern House School

Fern House School opened in November 2017. We are proud to be part of the Connect Education Trust which includes Bowes Primary School, Chesterfield Primary School, Carterhatch Junior School, Delta Primary School, Grange Park Primary School and Hazelbury Primary School. 

At the heart of human development is relationship. We pride ourselves on offering relational learning through an inclusive, attachment-aware, trauma-informed approach. Our specialist team of staff work hard to nurture each individual to gain a deeper understanding of their needs. 

Our highly adapted curriculum has been developed to meet the wide range of abilities and aspirations of our pupils. Our aim is to provide all pupils with opportunities to achieve and feel valued. We're committed to providing a broad and balanced experience with the cultural capital required to thrive in a modern world. 

We aim to support children and families at Fern House School to gain an understanding of the importance of a holistic approach, balanced by our strong curriculum and our therapeutic opportunities. Although we are a Special School, our mission is the same as any other educational setting - a commitment to preparing pupils academically and socially for life after Fern House School.

We hope you find our website informative, and we look forward to hearing from you.
