The children of Fellside are wonderful ambassadors for our school. Hardworking, polite and with positive attitudes to all areas of school life, they are truly delightful and we are privileged to work with them. Our commitment to the children and their families is to present as many valuable opportunities as possible to them – whether in sport, music, the arts or citizenship – whilst maintaining a strong academic focus through a stimulating curriculum that enables every child to succeed.
Enriching the Curriculum
Fellside children benefit from a curriculum that is greatly enriched to appeal to every child, no matter what they like doing. We participate in a wide range of sporting activities, festivals and competitions including football, basketball, tennis, cricket and even fencing! Our annual ‘Strawberries and Wine’ concert is a much anticipated event in which we embrace the musical achievements of our pupils. Thanks to our class assemblies and whole school performances such as those at Christmas, we seek to invite friends and families of the school to share the work of our amazing children as often as possible. One thing is for sure. There’s always much happening at Fellside!
