Welcome to Ferndown First School.

We are delighted that you are considering our wonderful school for the next stage in your child’s learning journey. It’s an important decision and we want to help you make the right decision for your child.

Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome you for a personal tour this year so we are preparing a brand new virtual tour which will be available on this website and on our Facebook page in early November. Until this is finished, you may like to see a short video which we prepared for new parents this year. A couple of things have changed since we made this, but it will give you an idea.


There is plenty of time before the closing date for applications. You have until 15th January 2021.

Apply for your child’s school place here.

In the meantime, please take a look at this short video which has plenty of advice on how to prepare your child for school. We would also encourage you to browse our website to give you a sense of  our impressive facilities, our core values and a flavour of what learning at Ferndown First School is like.


We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school community in September 2021.
