Welcome From The Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to Fulston Manor, a school of which I am immensely proud and which, over the past 40 years, has established an outstanding reputation for the achievements of our students and the quality of pastoral care underpinning the academic success. We have always believed that a child will only learn effectively when happy and, without losing sight of the need to secure the best possible qualifications , every effort is made to ensure that children are well cared for and given a huge range of opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom.

The school motto, “Everybody Matters, Everybody Succeeds, Everybody Helps”, reflects both the importance of the individual and the whole community. We are committed to ensuring that everyone is helped to make progress during their time with us and that such progress is recognised wherever it occurs, whether in academic achievement, sporting success or in any one of the other activities we make available to all. Equally important is ensuring that everyone comes to understand the part they play in helping others achieve their personal goals, recognising that the taking on of responsibility and developing an understanding of the needs of others is fundamental are key to living within any community.

We are committed to ensuring that time spent at Fulston Manor is time well spent and that students leave fully prepared to play a positive role in society. The fact that, almost without exception, students not only progress onto university or careers of their choice but then proceed to enjoy great success within their chosen field, demonstrates that we meet the goals we set ourselves and that Fulston Manor is indeed a very special place in which to be educated. The crest of the school carries the Latin inscription “Artes Discant Amitiae”, which translates as “May they learn the art of friendship”. In the midst of all the pressures to succeed and the drive for achievement, I am most proud of the fact that we are a community which has never lost sight of the importance of positive human relationships and it is this, perhaps, above everything else that continues to ensure the enduring quality of the school.
