Home » Welcome


Welcome to our highly successful school, which offers a challenging but safe, happy and supportive environment for our students. We are a highly motivated and successful learning community, and we have high expectations of our young people. It is our mission to be at the heart of the local community, providing a thriving and growing learning hub for people of all ages - we passionately believe that learning changes lives.

My staff are inspiring and supportive professionals whose commitment and dedication is evident throughout the school and both Governors and parents play a major role in Fir Vale's success. The partnership we build with parents and carers is immensely important.

We believe in educating the 'whole child', providing a wide range of opportunities and extra-curricular activities, inside and outside the school.

We equip students with academic qualifications, but also with skills that will develop them into confident and employable young adults.

At Fir Vale School we are all committed to maintaining our outstanding achievements and building further pathways and opportunities for our young people.
