It is an honour to welcome you to Fulston Manor School. We are a large non-selective school with an outstanding reputation for developing young people who make a positive contribution to their community. We are a welcoming school that operates as a family with a strong sense of pastoral care linked to our House system. We have four houses (Cromer, Hales, Morrison and Stanhope) in Year 7 to 11 with vertical tutor groups in each house. This means small numbers of each year group in each tutor group have a dedicated tutor who they see each day. The Sixth Form is a thriving environment for students Post 16 and we have outstanding facilities for students as well as excellent pastoral care and careers support to enables students to make the next steps into further education or employment. We offer a wide curriculum from Year 7 which allows young people to excel in all areas including the creative arts and students are encouraged to develop a love of learning and engage with their studies fully. The school ethos of “Everybody Matters, Everybody Succeeds, Everybody Helps” drives all that we do here to ensure our young people both achieve the best possible qualifications and also grow and develop their sense of self and their understanding of our world. We would welcome the opportunity to show you our school and if you are interested in visiting please do contact us.
Six years ago I found myself starting life as a Newly Qualified Teacher at Fulston Manor School; just like the new Year 7s, I was nervous about my classes, anxious about all the new teachers and worried I would get lost around the school site!
I still remember many parts of my first year, especially my first class with Year 7. Some were scared about the challenges of the big school, some were so excited to start a new challenge, the rest were just tired from the longer days! I remember my first whole school assembly and clapping at the so many rewards and achievements that were given out and thinking to myself, “What a lovely place to work, everybody and everything is celebrated here!”
I need not have worried about the teachers, they are some of the nicest and best I have ever met; some of my closest friends I have met are at this school and I love it and rave about it so much, that I now have two other sisters who work here; now that’s an achievement!
I soon found my fears to be needless; everyone was so welcoming and lovely and I soon felt a part of the Fulston Family; six years later and I am still here, has to say it all!
Hello, my name is Owen Foster and I am currently Head Boy at Fulston Manor School. During the five years that I have been at Fulston, I have been given so many great opportunities as well as enjoying myself .Personally, the biggest highlight for me was the Performing Arts tour in Germany where I had amazing experiences and I have another opportunity to go to Barcelona this year. I have been involved in many of the school events such as the Winter Concert and school productions where I have been given the opportunity to get involved in the tech side of theatre and also be stage manager. All these experiences and opportunities that the school has given me have helped me become more confident. Throughout my time at school, I have gained a lot of confidence through giving speeches and I have also learnt how to manage groups of people in my role as head boy. The staff and students have given me great support, offering so much help and time with my education. The Fulston Manor community is an honour to be a part of and the student and staff relationship makes it a great place to be. The teachers have a lot of enthusiasm and are always willing to help and always have to time for your education. Fulston has offered me many roles to contribute to the school such as House Prefect, White Badge prefect and also Red Tie prefect as well as Head Boy. I am proud and also honoured to have been given the title of Head Boy.
Hello, my name is Lucy Davis and I am the current Head Girl of Fulston Manor School. Throughout my time here I have developed, become more confident and have been given the opportunity to taken on various roles around the school. These include, red tie prefect, house prefect, peer mentor and school and house council member. During my years at Fulston I have been on trips to St Omar, Ypres and many trips to Swale Youth Forum events. I have attended many sporting events at Fulston such as the annual summer athletics competition, football club, netball matches and table tennis where I was given immense support at each fixture. All of the staff offer help throughout the school day, after school and even weekends where various workshops and study sessions are run. Everything Fulston offers us as students is beyond amazing and has allowed me to become a better and a more engaged student at school. Both teachers and students have formed a great community here and I am very pleased to take on the role of Head Girl in order to give something in return for everything this school has given me. I cannot wait to spend Year 11 and possibly Sixth Form at this great school.
When I left Rodmersham School I was nervous moving from a little school to a big school. But then I got to make new friends and to know my way around the school. The staff are very kind and will help you so that you get on the same page as everyone else. Homework projects were very difficult at first but then I got used to it and got good grades. This school offers a lot, like the France trip to Boulogne and there are lots of clubs. I represent the school in Basketball! This year has gone quite quickly and I can’t wait for Year 8.
We were delighted that our daughter attained a place in Fulston Manor’s highly sought-after sixth form and she quickly becoming a conscientious, confident and considerate adult. After mentioning her dream to travel the world, they facilitated her travels to Poland and Italy - and we have been able to host students from France and Italy ourselves too, which we would highly recommend!
Every teacher at Fulston Manor is 100% supportive and happy to go out of their way to offer extra guidance, and the Sixth Form building is second to none! It has plenty of room to study, in a new, state-of-the-art building.
Our twin boys are now in Year 7 and are guaranteed the best education methods and excellent pastoral support. The staff are very much role models at Fulston Manor, inspiring the students to become involved in new activities, raising money for charities and helping the local community. Students from all years also support and guide each other and this teaches them to be generous, compassionate and thoughtful.
Coming to the end of their first year, the changes we’ve noticed in the boys is quite frankly astounding. As their sister travels to Italy for the summer, and then onto university in September, we are confident that the boys own achievements at Fulston Manor - and beyond - will be something to write home about too!
