‘Realising potential, creating the future’

Our mission statement, designed by our students, highlights our commitment to maximising achievement and to develop our students as individuals. We believe that there is no limit to learning or ceiling on achievement and we seek the best progress and outcomes for all of our students. Our view of education is one that, while focusing on results, goes beyond qualifications through developing strong moral values, excellent social skills and a sense of community in our students so that they develop into articulate, responsible and successful adults.

Fulford School is situated in the southern outskirts of the city and draws most of its students from the villages to the south and east of York, as well as the York suburbs of Fulford, Fishergate and Heslington. Our school is an oversubscribed 11-18 mixed comprehensive with a Year 7 admission number of 300. The current number on roll is 1700 students including nearly 300 in the Sixth Form with school numbers being projected to grow in subsequent years. The school’s growth and success can be seen in a number of ways.

There has been an extensive building programme in recent years with a 2-storey new classroom block being completed and fully open to learners in 2023.The school has achieved a variety of Awards including the International Schools Award, the Healthy Schools Award, Advanced Inclusion Award, World Class School Status and the Sunday Times Comprehensive School of the Decade.

The school has an Enhanced Resource Centre with a capacity of 10 places for students on the autistic spectrum. We are committed to inclusion and maximising the talents of all in our care, believing all in our community should be known and valued as individuals.

We run a horizontal year system led by five Heads of Year supported by Assistant Heads of Year whose purpose is to support our learners in their journey from Year 7 through to Year 11. This system enables us to offer excellent support and guidance to all our students and it provides great opportunities for our students to undertake a range of leadership roles. A dedicated wider pastoral team supports this journey including a School Nurse, School Social Worker and a School Counsellor & Wellbeing Worker.

Fulford School was inspected in 2011 by a team who noted “What makes Fulford School an outstanding school is that it manages very successfully to promote both the academic and personal development of all its students”. The report goes on to say that “There is no sense of complacency. As a result the capacity for further improvement is outstanding”. This commitment to further improvement can be seen in our staff CPD, our curriculum development, our promotion of key learning attributes and Fulford values and most crucially through our promotion of a Growth mindset.

Our historic and current results are consistently high both for progress and attainment.

Fulford is an outward looking school that prioritises partnership working. This is seen in the development of closer ties and increased collaborative working with our primary partners and our current work to broaden the scale of South York MAT.

You will be joining a supportive, friendly and committed staff body of over 200 colleagues supported by excellent leadership at all levels.
