Pupils at Fyling Hall School can now ride the waves from the safety of their school grounds.

A huge wooden ship has been designed and built thanks to the generosity of Phyllis Scargill, a former head of Fyling Hall Junior School, when it was based at Whitehall in Whitby. She had bequeathed the school money in her will.

A competition was held to name the ship and pupil Lewis de Silva chose the name HMS Whitehall in memory of Mrs Scargull and in celebration of the Fyling Hall’s history.

A special opening ceremony was held which included the pupils performing sea shanties. The ship will be used at playtimes and in lessons.
