Head's Up

“By placing our pupils individual needs and wellbeing at the centre of their learning, they leave us confident and capable young people, ready for their next steps.”

Jody Wells

Inside Scoop from a current parent

Being a military family, constantly on the move every two-three years, we needed a boarding school that not only provided an outstanding curriculum, but a homely atmosphere and the very best pastoral care. With a boy and two girls we decided upon a co-ed school so our children would have shared memories and be together.

Despite each child having very different personalities and interests, they have all flourished, remained grounded, and gone from strength to strength at FSM. Although a couple have now moved on to senior school they still speak glowingly of their time here. Ultimately FSM has done its job; created happy children who are ready for their lives to come.

As Parents, We Love...

  • The work ethos that was instilled within our children which has continued into senior school, and paid off dividends in GCSEs.
  • Seeing how the teachers inspire our children, and are remembered years after.
  • Pastorally it has gone from strength to strength, which when we have been 3000 miles away, in a different time zone, we have to be 100% certain our children are receiving the best care.

Our Children Love...

  • The different activities every night which means there’s always something to do and any feelings of missing home are kept at bay. “Sorry I couldn’t phone Mummy, I was having too much fun” was a text message frequently received. Weekly Wicked Wednesdays as well as the termly Theme Nights were always particularly popular.
  • The food! The full English breakfasts on Sunday mornings and the special ice cream birthday cakes are legendary.
  • Amazing friends who all muck in together. It really does feel like a home away from home.
