John Ferneley College is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Melton Mowbray in the English county of Leicestershire.[1] The school is named after John Ferneley, a painter who lived in Melton Mowbray, and who is regarded as one of the great British equine artists.

A new school building was opened at the school site in April 2010, and an enrichment centre was opened in March 2012.[2] Previously a community school administered by Leicestershire County Council, John Ferneley College converted to academy status in November 2011. However the school continues to coordinate with Leicestershire County Council for admissions.

The school specialises in Business and Enterprise, and has a dedicated Enterprise Learning Zone which offers specialist facilities for teaching Technology subjects (Food, Electronics and Design Technology), Business Studies and ICT.[3]
