Our boarding community has a family feel and our boarding houses play a crucial role in creating a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our boarding team create a fun and relaxed environment where both pupils and parents feel supported by experienced staff. This environment allows our boarders to develop socially, academically and mature emotionally in a secure and stable environment.
All houses are equipped with wireless internet, common rooms and facilities to make hot drinks and snacks. There are communal areas for the children to socialise, the sports hall is available on an evening and there is a busy weekend programme.
The original Georgian family home of Fyling Hall known as Main House is the home to our girls who board. Spread over several floors, the girls (aged 12 to 18) live in rooms of 2 to 4 pupils, with stunning views of the Yorkshire coastline. The boarding house has a family atmosphere where pupils of all ages and nationalities socialise and provide support for each other, forging friendships that continue once they leave school.

She is always available to discuss the welfare of pupils or to answer any questions parents might have. Miss Emma Anders is the girls’ matron and lives in Main House. She is an experienced member of staff who is there to support the girls and make them feel at home.
