Fyling Hall School is celebrating after receiving its latest inspection report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

The inspection team spent four days in the school and drew its conclusions after observing lessons, conducting interviews with pupils and examining pupils’ work.

They also held discussions with members of staff, members of the governing body as well as observing extra-curricular activities and visiting the boarding houses.

Pupils and parents were also given the opportunity to contribute via questionnaires and the results were analysed by the inspection team.

Headmaster Ken James said: “This was my first full inspection and, therefore, I was a little apprehensive.

“However, I had nothing to worry about.

“We are all overjoyed that our hard work has been recognised.

“Fyling Hall continues to excel and we are so pleased that the inspectors recognised the progress we are making and were impressed by our exceptional pupils and staff.”

The inspectors concluded that “the pupils’ personal development is outstanding” and that their personal development is “fully supported by excellent pastoral care”.

They also reported that “teaching throughout the school is excellent and is highly effective in promoting pupils’ learning, achievements and progress”.
