Our Junior School
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)
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.
“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. Clubs also 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 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.
