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....
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 Toby McGinn and I am currently Head Boy at Fulston Manor School. Throughout my years here, I have enjoyed myself thoroughly and have been given the opportunity to do so many amazing things. Personally, I have been on two Performing Arts tours to Paris and Germany where I had such a great time. I have been involved in many of the school events such as the Winter Concert and school productions where I have performed in front of many people. These events have shaped me into who I am today by increasing my confidence, making new friends and having new experiences. I have also been given great support from the teachers who are always willing to help me, offering workshops and making their lessons interesting and engaging. Fulston offers roles such as House Prefect, White Badges and Red Ties and these have all contributed to my confidence and success throughout the school. I am very honoured and proud to have been given the title of Head Boy. I wish to continue y years here at Fulston going into sixth Form to do my A Levels and am looking forward to the next few years.
Hi, I’m Chloe Ellingham, Head Girl at Fulston Manor School. Throughout my years at Fulston I have had the privilege of experiencing the opportunities Fulston has given me. I have gone on amazing trips to places such as Bude and France, attended extra-curricular clubs such as choir and textiles club and taken part in competitions that have given me valuable attributes such as confidence, team-work and responsibilities. The school also gives you roles such as Library Assistant, School Prefect and Head Girl and I have, therefore, been able to gain a closer connection with fellow Red Tie Prefects and students around the school. I have gained courage through giving speeches and attending meetings. Every teacher has put all their effort into making sure I succeed and exceed in my academic goals. They have done this by ensuring I have fun revision resources such as ‘Kahoot’ and ‘Seneca Leaning’, and making sure I understand the feedback in class. Everyone at Fulston Manor School is friendly and kind, giving me enthusiasm whenever I need it and helping me through online systems such as class charts and ‘Show My Homework’. I am proud to call myself Head Girl of such a recommendable school and am incredibly thankful for the many memorable and valuable lessons it has taught me so far.
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!
