Description of the school

Churston Ferrers Grammar is an oversubscribed, selective, co-educational 11–18 school of average size.

Situated outside Brixham, Devon, the majority of students live within a five-mile radius of the school. Since 2005, the school has been a specialist college for the humanities. The percentage of students entitled to free school meals is low, as is the proportion with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

The overwhelming majority of students are from a White British heritage and the percentage of young people from minority ethnic groups or whose first language is not English is much lower than that found nationally. Students' attainment on entry to the school is exceptionall...y high. The school has a number of links with schools in Europe and Peru, with a focus on environmental issues.

In 2007 it was designated as a Lead School in south-west England for sustainability. The headteacher has been in post for 18 months. The school has gained the Sportsmark, Healthy School and Investors in People awards.
