School Description

Situated in a traditional English village in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, yet just 5 miles from Leeds city centre, Fulneck School is an independent co-educational boarding school with plenty to offer. The school’s academic results speak for themselves and it is proud of its position in the top 5% of all schools and colleges in England. With its diverse curriculum, Fulneck School is able to fulfil, if not exceed, every student’s academic potential. Whether it be pupils with Oxbridge aspirations or those needing expert care from the award-winning Learning Support Unit, Fulneck School is equipped to help each individual succeed.

Facilities

The original Grade 1 listed 18th century buildings have recently been tastefully refurbished with modern facilities and upgraded to meet today's educational needs without losing their essential character. Extensive grounds and playing fields surround the school buildings, on the side of a valley in picturesque Yorkshire.

Sports & Arts

Fulneck School promotes a well-rounded education for its pupils, including a range of extra-curricular activities incorporating sports such as cricket, hockey, netball, football, rugby and tennis. Recent overseas activities have included a choir tour to the USA, a business trip to the Czech Republic, a netball team trip to Barbados and a ski holiday to Italy. Music plays a key role in the school community throughout the calendar year, with the jazz band and orchestral group playing at regular events and the whole school choir singing the choral evensong at the famous York Minster every year. Creative students can also join a wide range of interest-driven clubs including the school magazine, dance, debating and drama.

Dormitories and Student Life

Boarding at Fulneck School is homely, supportive, flexible and fun. The school's two boarding houses- one for girls and one for boys- are both located in the main school building, creating a very safe and secure environment. The school aims to provide a 'home from home' experience to ensure that the transition into boarding life is as seamless as possible for both UK and international students. The care and wellbeing of all students is the number one priority of the houseparents, matrons and academic staff, who make sure that a well-balanced and structured routine is in place.The girls' house accommodates 36 boarders and the boys' house accommodates 50. Both houses have single, twin and triple bedrooms as well as well-equipped common room areas and kitchens. Weekends are jam-packed with events and there is always a varied timetable of activities on offer such as trips to shopping centres, parks, museums, outdoor activity centres and much much more. Nestled between glorious Yorkshire countryside and the city of Leeds, boarders have the perfect British balance of enjoying both country and city life.
