Why choose Hymers College?
‘Empowering young people to enrich the world’
By providing a challenging and stimulating learning environment, we encourage each pupil to fulfil their full potential and contribute positively to school life. We value the qualities that make every student unique and aim to develop individual talents and strengths; whilst maintaining traditional values and celebrating every child’s success.
Situated just a mile from the centre of Hull, our beautiful grounds cover 45 acres, with first-class buildings and facilities, consisting of: a specialist Art and Design Centre, ICT Centre, theatre, state-of-the-art Stephen Martin Music School with individual music lesson rooms, recently refurbished science laboratories, lecture rooms and an award-winning, newly built Learning Resource Centre.
“The fantastic facilities at the school and superb extra-curricular opportunities are key strengths of a Hymers education. Hymers gave me every opportunity to be the best student I could be.”
— Ben Partridge, Old Hymerian
Our inclusive culture is one where it is respected to succeed, whatever the endeavour. Our dedicated staff work tirelessly to support pupils in fulfilling their aspirations within both the curriculum and extra-curricular activities; developing well-rounded, grounded young adults who contribute positively to society.
Education at Hymers College is not confined to the classroom. Our extensive extra-curricular programme creates an environment in which students can grow, explore, discover and flourish. These activities range from the Duke of Edinburgh Award to Young Enterprise, to Photography Workshops and even a Minecraft Club!
Traditional values such as self-discipline, respect and good manners are important to us. Equally, we believe in being ambitious, forward-thinking and open-minded. This is encouraged through our work in the community. All year groups work together on projects to raise money for local, national and international charities. Whether it is fundraising or making donations, here at Hymers College we believe in giving back. We also offer our facilities to local groups, schools and charities and we have hosted a record number of events this year.
Paying close attention to the progress of every child, our school embraces and encourages individuality and cares deeply about pupils’ well-being and happiness.
