The quality of the school’s pastoral care is excellent, strongly supporting the pupils’ personal development in accordance with the schools aims to develop the self-confidence of all pupils‘ (ISI Inspection)
Due to our small size, strong relationships can be forged between Fyling Hall‘s staff and pupils. This allows us to meet the individual needs of each child. Pupils quickly come to feel part of our community, and this is the key to the family-like atmosphere. Providing guidance, support, advice and a safe environment encourages our pupils to be independent and play an active role in school life. We strive to create a relaxed, yet purposeful learning environment, where everyone can express themselves and fulfil their potential.
Fyling Hall is a special place and those that work here are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment. Boarding students are supported by highly experienced, on-site boarding staff including teaching staff, house-parents, a head-matron and support matrons.
Miss Gilmour, Deputy Head (Pastoral) lives on the school site and is in charge of the pastoral care of both the boys and girls. She is always available to discuss the welfare of pupils or to answer any questions parents might have. Miss Emma Anders is our Head Matron and House Mistress of Main House, she lives in Main House and Mr. Justin Mayne is House Master of Mulgrave and lives in the Mulgrave boarding house.
All pupils are allocated tutor groups where a tutor is assigned to support, monitor and guide, as well to as act as an important link to home. However much of our pastoral care also happens on a day to day informal basis. Relations between staff and pupils are strong: we engage with, and know the children well and as a result, we are able to recognise when they may need further guidance and support.
