Fyling Hall School Pastoral Care

The quality of the school’s pastoral care is excellent. It strongly supports the pupils’ personal development in accordance with the school’s aim to develop the self-confidence of all pupils. (ISI Inspection) 

Due to its small size, the school can meet each child’s individual needs. Pupils quickly feel part of our community, which is the key to the family-like atmosphere. All pupils are allocated tutor groups, where a tutor is assigned to support, monitor, and guide them.
