Hymers College is one of the leading academic co-educational day schools in the country, educating over 930 children from the age of 8 to 18. Situated in Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the junior and senior schools occupy a stunning site. The school benefits from a mixture of historic listed and recently constructed buildings with outstanding modern facilities. Dating back to 1893, the College has a strong reputation for its high academic standards, supportive pastoral care and its vibrant co-curricular life. It is a place where girls and boys are given the opportunity to flourish in a caring, grounded and diverse community, where relationships between all members of that community matter enormously.
