Welcome to Our School

At Robert Ferguson Primary we pride ourselves in being a happy place of learning where children feel safe, grow in confidence and quickly become totally immersed in learning.

A typical day at Robert Ferguson Primary School sees all the children working hard on key skills during morning lessons, then applying these through creative, collaborative and independent activities in the afternoons.

Our website will keep you up to date with news and events, especially if you download our new app for iPhone or iPad or for Google/Android devices.
