Hymers College is a co-educational independent school for children aged 3-18. It is located in Hull and occupies two campuses: Hymers Hessle Mount is the site for pre-school to Year 2, and Hymers College is for Year 3 to Year 13.


The Junior School (Years 3-6) has a broad and balanced curriculum that incorporates traditional subjects, such as English, maths and science, as well as non-traditional subjects, such as drama, ICT and design & technology. Superb facilities, including a design workshop and a science laboratory, support pupils’ learning.


Extra-curricular activities the school provides mean that pupils can enhance their existing skills and discover new talents. This helps pupils grow in confidence and develop into well-rounded young people.


Pastoral care is exemplary, with the CARE Code being at the centre of life in the Junior School. Care means that everyone looks after each other. Acceptance means everyone is valued for who they are. Respect means that everyone is listened to. Effort means that everyone does their best, both in lessons and outside of lessons. As a result, the school community is warm and supportive and is a place where children can thrive.
