Welcome To Fulston Manor
Welcome from our Executive Headteacher
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 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.
Our 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 a fundamental key to living within any community. The school ethos 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 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 that 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 enable students to make the next steps into further education or employment.
We offer a broad 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. 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 our school.
We would welcome the opportunity to show you our school and if you are interested in visiting please do contact us.
