Senior School

Fyling Hall’s Senior School is for pupils aged from 11 to 18 and consists of a combination of boarding and daily pupils. We offer first class teaching in small classes by specialist staff. We consistently feature as a top school for progress (*added value) that students make from GCSE to A level. Our beautiful location provides inspiration to our students.

“The school aims to identify and develop the potential of individual pupils by providing them with a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum enriched by a range of extra-curricular activities which makes learning enjoyable and rewarding within the school’s motto of ‘the days that make us happy make us wise’. It is highly successful in this aim throughout.”

Our beautiful rural setting allows students, particularly the older ones, to enjoy more freedom than is often possible at other schools and we encourage a stimulating range of extra-curricular activities.

Students learn early to take responsibility for themselves, for younger pupils and for their surroundings. At Fyling Hall, every pupil is known and valued as an individual.

“It really is like a family. Because the school’s small, you know everyone – not just the people in your own tutor group or sports team. Sure, we have our falling-outs, like every family, but you learn to get on”
