Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the Ferndale Community School website. We hope that you take time to browse our site and learn more about a school that we are very proud of.

I am delighted to begin my first year as Headteacher of Ferndale Community School at such an exciting time in the development of both the school and education in Wales. It is a pleasure and a privilege to have the opportunity to work alongside the pupils, staff and community. We have many exciting developments ahead and I am looking forward to observing first hand how the school will continue to thrive and succeed for the benefits of all pupils and staff.

We are situated in the heart of our community and aim to provide the very best standards in teaching and learning. We provide an excellent learning environment and opportunities, inside and outside the classroom, to allow each student to thrive and succeed.

Whilst ensuring that the school remains happy, caring and inclusive we endeavour to set high standards of self-discipline and hard work. Visitors to the school are impressed by our students who are friendly, welcoming and keen to succeed. It is important that we celebrate our success together and this website is an excellent way of sharing our good news. We encourage our pupils and staff to evaluate their own work as well as that of others. Therefore, if you like our website, please tell us! Also, if there are areas where you would like to see further development, contact us with your suggestions. Thank you for your continued support in all that we are working towards together.

Mr. Nathan Prygodzicz.


All pupils have been sent a pupil voice survey to their school email address. Please can those pupils that have not already completed it, please complete it as soon as possible. This is so we can gather vital information to support us in our preparations and delivery of both in person and at home learning."

Great News

PE lessons are returning from Monday 21st September. Your child will need to wear their School PE kit on the days that they have PE.

Girls will be required to wear their school PE kit and a pair of dark coloured sports leggings/joggers. A dark coloured hoodie is preferable.
Boys can wear their School PE polo top or rugby jersey with either their school PE shorts or a pair of dark jogging bottoms.

We will not be taking the pupils outside during wet weather to prevent them from being sat in damp clothing for the remainder of the day. Fitness activities will be taught for the initial few weeks.
If a pupil is unable to take part in their PE lesson please could I ask that you telephone the school with the reason for non-participation. All pupils must accompany their class onto the 3G or basketball courts and would be asked to walk wherever possible.

Thank you for your cooperation
Miss A Evans
