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. For a copy of the routes and timings please contact the School Office:

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.

School Lunches

Our meals are freshly produced every day in our school kitchen. A healthy, balanced and nutritious diet has been an important part of school life long before it became fashionable. We try to use fresh meat and poultry from the region and wherever possible fruit and vegetables that are sourced locally.

At lunch time there is a hot meal every day with a vegetarian option if required and a salad bar is available for those who would prefer. Our menus are on a three week rotation which prevents repetition and through the food council pupils are encouraged to play an active role in deciding the content of the menus.

We cater for a wide range of dietary needs including food allergies, halal and vegan. Please contact us to discuss any specific needs you might have.

 Occasional Boarding

For those parents who find themselves needing to go away for a few days or longer then pupils are always welcome to experience boarding. If this is something you are interested in finding out more about then please contact the school office for details:

 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.

The weekend activity programme is designed to offer a wide range of exciting opportunities balanced with time to relax and enjoy more sedate pastimes. Mountain biking, sports fixtures, ice skating, surfing, paintballing, fell running and many more high energy activities are complemented by trips to the cinema, bowling, shopping, eating out, watching football and rugby matches, walks on the beach and dont forget the ice cream.
