Fulneck School is a historic independent school with a Christian ethos, and is located in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, England. The school was established in 1753 by the Moravian Church in order to provide an education for the sons and daughters of the Church's ministers and missionaries. Today it provides a modern education for the pupils of West Yorkshire, as well as attracting a small number of boarders from the United Kingdom and overseas.
The school itself overlooks an attractive valley in the green-belt countryside, and is within easy reach of both Leeds and Bradford. The original 18th Century buildings have been tastefully refurbished to meet today's educational needs without losing their essential character, and are complemented by the modern laboratories, gymnasium and sixth form centre built in traditional materials.
The co-educational Senior School at Fulneck provides a safe and welcoming environment which, through small class sizes, enables each pupil to achieve his or her best. Class sizes average about 16 and very rarely exceed 20, which allows us to consistently monitor and assess pupils, tailoring our teaching around the individual needs of the pupil. All pupils are issued with a twice-yearly report.
Throughout the school each child is assigned to a Form Tutor who looks after problems, advises on homework and monitors progress. The Vice Principal and the Pastoral Tutors help to oversee the transition of pupils as they develop through the school. Both Form Tutors and more senior staff are available at Parents' Evenings or at other pre-arranged times.
The curriculum broadly follows the national curriculum at Key Stage 3 (Year 9) and includes: Mathematics, English, Modern Foreign Languages, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Physical Education, Art, Music, Design & Technology, Information & Communication Technology, Food Technology, Geography, History and PHSE.
At GCSE all pupils follow the core subjects of Mathematics, English, Science and Religious Studies (Short Course) and in consultation with their parents and the staff can select from the following subjects:
Information & Communication Technology
Design & Technology
The LSU (Learning Support Unit) is an integral part of the school. Tuition and guidance are provided for students experiencing a range of difficulties in both literacy and numeracy. We specialise in working with students with dyslexic difficulties. Support can be given throughout the full age range of the school from Nursery through to final 'A' level examinations.
Fulneck offers a wide range of sporting opportunities for its pupils. In core PE, Netball, Hockey, Rugby and Football are taught in winter in every year group, with Tennis, Athletics and Cricket in the summer. Dance and Gymnastics are taught at Key Stage 3 and activities such as Badminton, Volleyball, Basketball and Health Related Fitness are also offered at various stages throughout the school.
The Sixth Form and Year 11 participate in a games afternoon where a number of exciting options are available along with more traditional activities. Groups have participated in canoeing, skiing, golf, sub aqua, rock climbing and kayaking over recent years.
Extra-curricular activities are available for those students who wish to participate at both recreational and excellence level. Teams are entered into leagues in Netball, Hockey, Football, Tennis and Cricket and many of our pupils are regularly selected to represent both the City and County at various sports. International tours have operated over recent years to Barcelona, South Africa, Barbados and Milan. An annual ski trip to the Alps takes place each February half term.
Fulneck also offers examination level PE at GCSE and 'A' Level, both of which prove to be very popular courses.
