Learning to create a better world
Welcome to Churston Ferrers Grammar School, one of only two co-educational grammar schools in the South West of England. Churston has a long standing reputation for combining academic excellence with outstanding personal development and pastoral care.
We offer a co-educational, academic education that opens doors for students from all backgrounds. We maximise academic success through a creative and supportive culture that welcomes and includes everyone in the school.
We want our students to achieve more and be happier at Churston than at any other school, and to leave us with a passion for learning and a strong sense of social justice.
We believe that happy, challenged and well supported students perform better, and are more caring towards each other. Student welfare is a priority and we are proud of our students’ considerate and inclusive outlook.
