Fyling Hall School has a long standing history of cooperation with the United World Colleges Poland National Committee, that every year is involved with choosing a couple of scholars. The selection process and criteria are extremely demanding and around 15 people every year are selected to attend various schools around the United Kingdom and Austria.

Fyling Hall had joined the group of scholarship-offering schools in 2008, with two girls Malwina and Agata coming to Robin Hoods Bay to pursue their education in Yorkshire with a perspective of studying in British universities. The latter was achieved with flying colours, as the very first ones to represent Poland in the school, have left an exceptional impression, which in turn made the cooperation continue to this day.

Throughout the upcoming years, more people have arrived, and left with an impressive academic record and offers from respected Russell Group Universities. To this day three polish Fyling Hall Alumni that have pursued their higher education going onto Oxbridge and eight others gaining places in UCL, Imperial College London, Warwick University and many more, with most studying prestigious courses, such as medicine, biochemistry, mathematics and economics.

Fyling Hall had given everybody an amazing opportunity to follow their dreams of world-class universities. They have proven that hard work definitely pays off and is highly rewarded by not only authorities but also overall academic success and accomplishments.
