Fernhill School is delighted to take part in the Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS). It is a progressive learning programme for young people which has been designed to recognise wider achievement.
JASS develops the whole individual by offering recognition in four key areas – regular physical activity (Get Active, Stay Active), exploring a personal interest (My Interests), working for the good of the community or the environment (Me and My World) and completing an outdoor activity or challenge (Adventure) and is designed so that participants move through the levels with increasing commitment, learning, and challenge.
We started this programme in 2017 and have children who have achieved their Bronze Status and have already moved onto Silver. Fernhill School feels that this serves as an excellent introduction to the Duke of Edinburgh Programme.
