Situated at the edge of the historic city of York, Fulford School offers a fantastic opportunity for children and young people to learn and develop. We are committed to providing the best possible foundations for adult life. We understand that every child has a unique set of qualities and needs and when they join us we offer the challenge, nurture and opportunities needed for them to grow into impressive young adults.
Our core purpose is ‘REALISING POTENTIAL – CREATING THE FUTURE’.
This is underpinned by our ‘HEART CORE VALUES’ of: HONESTY, EMPATHY, AMBITION, RESPECT and TOLERANCE
We are proud of our pupils’ academic excellence and have a clear focus on the highest quality of teaching and outcomes. However we want Fulford pupils to look back at school as more than just a set of academic qualifications. We want to help unlock the potential of all our children in all areas of their life. We celebrate the arts, sport, languages and creativity. We live in a vibrant and exciting world. A world our children need to engage in with confidence and respect, celebrating differences and learning from others.
Our school community is a happy one. We have clear expectations that lead to a well ordered and harmonious environment where pupils can excel.

I am taking the NPQSL course at the moment and I used World Class Schools as an example of how wonderful it is to give our students opportunities and how great the WCSQM application process is.

World Class Quality Mark status has given Finham Park School an enviable reputation nationally and internationally, enabling us to recruit the best, most dynamic staff and be a school that teachers and students are proud to be a part of. The opportunities World Class status brings enable us to influence, lead others and grow as a school community as we share excellence with the very best practitioners both at home and internationally.

Thank you so much for the World Class School celebration event yesterday, it was so well organised and I came away with a lot of information and great sharing of best practise. It was also lovely to see the other schools' hard work and projects.
