Hull Collegiate School seeks to realise the full potential of each and every child within its care.
We provide a learning environment that challenges, enthuses and encourages initiative, so that children leave school with the skills and attributes needed for their future.
Laying the solid foundations for your child’s education can begin in the term they celebrate their third birthday.
Hull Collegiate Nursery is part of the Prep School family, and the children are very much a part of whole school life. They enjoy being included in Christmas plays, seasonal and religious celebrations, sports days and regular teaching sessions with the reception class.
Our nursery children enjoy spacious, well equipped rooms and outdoor play areas alongside the wealth of facilities available through being part of a 3 – 18 years through school. From adventurous treks through the school’s beautiful wooded grounds to cosy pyjama parties sharing hot chocolate and bedtime stories, our Nursery curriculum nurtures every aspect of the developing child.
Hull Collegiate School Nursery is open Monday to Friday, 7.30 am to 6.00 pm for 51 weeks of the year.
The Prep School
Joining ‘big school’ can be an exciting and nervous time for both parent and child. Our experienced teaching and support staff and enviable child to teacher ratios help ensure that this transition is a smooth one.
Pupils have access to specialist facilities for ICT, music and art. They also benefit from the schools first-class sporting facilities and vast grounds. Their curriculum is enhanced by specialist teaching in music, languages and sport.
As pupils progress to Key Stage 2, a broad curriculum including design technology and critical thinking provides a range of challenging experiences which foster a love of learning and the independence that is needed as they prepare for Year 7 and beyond.
Trips and visits, a varied extra-curricular activity programme and busy sporting schedule ensure that pupils are able to try new activities and discover what they will most enjoy and succeed in. Holiday clubs and early morning and after-school facilities provide additional child-care provision outside normal school hours.
The transition from Junior to Senior School or from another school is a major milestone in your child’s progression.
Pupils joining Hull Collegiate Senior School are supported by highly experienced staff members who are able to help them adapt quickly to their new routine.
Our teacher to pupil ratios ensure that we get to know every pupil really well.>
Senior School life provides pupils with well-planned, engaging and challenging learning experiences and opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning and progress. The curriculum balances knowledge with the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century workplace.
Day trips and residential visits, both in the UK and abroad, provide enriching experiences beyond the classroom and themes include culture, the arts and sport.
An average class sizes of 6 pupils per subject in the Sixth Form promotes pupil confidence which in turn enables active debate and discussion with peers and teachers. Alongside their chosen A level studies, pupils also complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), a university-style dissertation in a topic area of their choice.
Sixth Form pupils are given the opportunity to demonstrate their leadership skills as school prefects, lead the school council and assist with coaching and mentoring across a variety of year groups, subjects and extra-curricular activities. They are also responsible for organising their own social events calendar.
In addition, a programme of visiting speakers and trip opportunities provides a rich, cultural environment.
