Care and support

We aim to provide students with a caring, supportive and disciplined learning environment where individuals can develop their skills and grow their self-confidence.

Our students are very much treated as emerging adults as we help them make the transition from primary school through their teenage years into early adulthood.

Students are encouraged to support each other, to think for themselves and to take responsibility for their actions.

We employ three student managers who support students throughout their time at John Ferneley. Their role is to meet the behavioural, emotional and social needs of every student and work with all other members of staff to ensure students make excellent progress and are happy whilst at college.
