The Senior School

The Senior School is for pupils aged from 11 to 18 and consists of a combination of boarding and daily pupils. We offer first class teaching in small classes by specialist staff and are proud to be listed consistently as one of the top 500 UK independent schools in the Financial Times.

‘The school aims to identify and develop the potential of individual pupils by providing them with a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum enriched by a range of extra-curricular activities which makes learning enjoyable and rewarding within the school’s motto of ‘the days that make us happy make us wise’. It is highly successful in this aim throughout.’ (ISI Inspection)

Students learn early to take responsibility for themselves, for younger pupils and for their surroundings. At Fyling Hall, every pupil is known and valued as an individual.

‘It really is like a family. Because the school’s small, you know everyone – not just the people in your own tutor group or sports team. Sure, we have our falling-outs, like every family, but you learn to get on’ (Year 10 pupil)
