Non-Selective Admissions

Fyling Hall is proud to be both non-selective and academic, welcoming students with a range of abilities. The school is regularly highly-rated for value-added and specialises in helping students to improve and excel and to exceed their predicted grades and baseline scores. Students show significant improvements after joining Fyling Hall, whatever their start point.

There is no entrance test and the school is open to any pupil who is capable of accessing and making progress from the education we offer. There is a reasonable expectation that pupils joining the Senior School have the ability to cope with the curriculum that the school offers.

It is important that during the application process parents disclose any information that will affect the applicants education. Parents must, as soon as possible, disclose any particular known or suspected circumstances relating to their child’s health, allergies, disability, learning or social difficulties. This will allow us to ensure we are able to fully support all students that join our school. Our students’ health and wellbeing is of utmost importance.


If there is space in the appropriate year group we are happy for pupils to join us at any time in the school year. We also offer short term enrolment and boarding options. In some cases we may be able to discuss flexibility in the year group your child will join, if it is deemed to be in the best interest of the student and the school, for example to accelerate learning or allow applicants the opportunity to catch up.

If you have specific requests or concerns please contact us.
