Fyling Hall Junior School is a small school with a family atmosphere. The children work and play in a relaxed and supportive environment, where they can enjoy their learning. In these nurturing surroundings, children flourish and become confident learners. Being part of a whole school and utilising the specialist senior school teachers and facilities also enables our primary pupils to enjoy a seamless transition to our secondary school.
“The pupils’ personal development is outstanding; from the earliest age they are willing to take on responsibility. Older pupils look after younger ones and the whole school community works as a large family.” (ISI Inspection)
“Fyling Hall is a special place, a family, a well adjusted, progressive and expressive family where the older children really do like their little ‘brothers and sisters’ and where the teachers, like parents, hold the hopes and dreams and hearts of the children in their hands and show them that it is safe to try, to explore and to learn. Educationally, Fyling Hall lights the fire of imagination, rather than ‘filling the bucket’ of knowledge.” (Current Parent)
We are located in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, with 45 acres of countryside, sports fields and woodland. We have a spectacular coastal setting and we are a 10 minute drive from the world famous fishing port of Whitby. This safe and beautiful environment plays an important role in all aspects of school life and provides an excellent backdrop to allow your children to learn, grow and develop.
Fyling Hall Junior School is a very close knit community and has very strong links between all staff and pupils. Senior pupils regularly visit the Junior School which helps to build the familial relationships that the school prides itself upon. The classrooms are homely, bright and cheerful. Day pupils are also able to board for the occasional night, and are always welcome. Boarding is often a great adventure for the children, and there is a team of dedicated pastoral staff available around the clock.
“The day I saw the Head Boy giving four year old Ewan a high five, I knew we’d made the right decision.” (Current Parent)
After School Activities & Weekend Programme
At Fyling Hall, we provide a diverse extra-curricular and weekend activity programme, which provides opportunities for new experiences and keeps our students busy. After-school clubs are run every day of the week until 5.30pm, with a wide range of activities available:
from climbing and board games to crafts and badminton. Breakfast club is also an option for parents who need it. After-school clubs and breakfast club allow senior and junior pupils to mix, and this helps to build the familial relationships that the school prides itself upon. Weekends can be action packed as well, with opportunities to go swimming, canoeing, and to the cinema.
Our family focus means we welcome daliy pupils and families to come and join the boarding pupils and staff to experience the activities we have on offer. A termly programme of activities is avaliable for download from the link above. If you have any questions about the weekend activities then please contact Mr coates on the following email address:
Our daily school buses provide travel from Whitby, Scarborough and the surrounding villages and are met on arrival at school by the head teacher or another member of staff. A second bus also runs at 17:35 to both towns to ferry children who have been taking part in after school activities.
Boarders travel by bus to the railway station or Manchester airport at the start and end of each term. They are escorted by a member of staff from school and are met upon their return.
