At Fulwood High School and Arts College we work in close partnership with parents to promote the development of our young people in every aspect of their lives. We aim for Fulwood pupils to develop as responsible young people who value and respect both themselves and others.

Fulwood High School is an Arts College - a specialist school with the focus on the Performing Arts. We are particularly proud of this achievement which recognizes a long tradition in the Performing Arts at Fulwood. Arts College status brings an enriched curriculum and extended opportunities for our pupils. In addition we now have a new 1.5 million Arts Center which provides "state of the art" facilities for Dance, Drama, Music, Art and Media Studies.


The school is organised into fifi ve Learning Teams each under the guidance of a Learning Team Leader. The Year 7 Learning Team is seen as a transition phase where pupils are introduced to the rigours of secondary education. The remaining four Learning Teams are organised differently but the focus remains on learning and achieving.


The pupils in Years 8 to 11 are divided into the four remaining Learning Teams which are called Houses. Pupils are placed into Houses in family groups so that our staff can build strong links between the school and the home. Each House is made up of eight mixed ability, mixed aged Learning Groups. This vertical arrangement allows the Learning Group Tutor to monitor the progress of a small number of pupils from each age group more closely and so address their learning and welfare needs more closely. It also allows older pupils to take on roles of responsibility and develop their leadership potential.


Each subject area is led by a Subject Leader who has overall responsibility for that subject within the curriculum. The departments are grouped into six curriculum teams. The Curriculum Team Leaders work to ensure the curriculum is well-delivered and remains up-to-date.

In Year 7 pupils are placed initially in mixed ability groups for most subjects but during the school year they are placed in ability sets for several subjects including English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Technology and French. When pupils move up into House System they are taught in groups of their own age that are set according to ability in almost all subjects. Differentiated work is set to meet the needs of individual pupils, materials for extension, enrichment and extra support are available.

In Years 7, 8 and 9 all pupils study English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, French, Design Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Religious Education and Physical Education. In Years 8 and 9 some pupils also study German. In Years 10 and 11 all pupils study English, some study English Literature with others following a Media Studies course. Mathematics and Science, Information Technology, Religious Education and Physical Education.
