School Captain's Welcome
Welcome From Abi Hook, School Captain
Hello, my name is Abi Hook and I am currently honoured to hold one of two School Captain titles at Fulston Manor. During my 5 years here, I have engaged in a number of activities, in particular Choir, Samba Band and Dance Club. I have also taken on a variety of roles and responsibilities such as Form Captain, School Council Member, House Prefect, White Badge Prefect, Red Tie Prefect and now School Captain.
I’ve loved my time at Fulston because whilst it has a rich, academic environment there are also a whole host of opportunities for the less academic among us, such as myself, and everyone is able to thrive and show their own strengths. For example, the Performing Arts Department, in particular, has given me opportunities perhaps other schools may not be able to provide like school trips to the theatre, many concerts and a ‘colours’ tie for taking part in Dance clubs. In fact, unlike other schools, Fulston offers scholarships for both Performing Arts and Sports and I was lucky enough to be given a scholarship for Performing Arts, making me feel welcomed in the school and like I really have a place here.
Whilst at this school, I have received endless support from both peers and teachers alike, helping me grow from a shy Year 7 to a confident Year 11. The staff at this school, whilst remaining professional, are very friendly and easy to talk to whether you have an issue with a peer group, need help with homework or just wanted to talk to someone. The people here are equally friendly and it is easy to find people you will bond with and make friends.
There is never a dull moment at Fulston and I hope you enjoy your time here as much as I have.
