The Featherby Partnership is made up of 2 schools: Featherby Infant and Nursery and Featherby Junior who are working closely together like one school. We are going forward through an exciting period of change with a new leadership team and a collaborative approach to ensure consistency of high expectations for the whole of the Featherby community. At Featherby you will find a true passion for learning, happy and safe children, a purposeful environment and an inspiring curriculum.

Featherby is an inclusive school that supports learners well and encourages them to be independent and take risks in their learning.

We have high expectations of behaviour at Featherby and promote positive praise amongst learners.

Working in collaboration with each other ensures that we build strong relationships with families, children and the wider community to continuously provide children with great learning opportunities!
