Welcome to our website especially for former pupils, former parents, and staff of Hymers – we’re pleased you’ve dropped by to take a look around and hope you find it interesting.

Hello and welcome!
It is with great pride that I begin my role as President of the Old Hymerian Association in September 2022, following in the footsteps of Emily Pennack. I would like to begin by thanking her for the amazing job she has done over the past two years. We both have similar passions: the mission and commitment to our alumni remains the same, to keep our alumni connected to our school and each other. Many of you are already participating on so many levels. In big ways and in small, your contributions are important and valuable, so thank you. We always think that one of the measures of a good school is how many former pupils want to keep in touch, and in that respect, we at Hymers are very fortunate. We want to develop our mission of creating a strong inclusive community for the benefit of all Old Hymerians.
We aim to bring together our former pupils, their families, and staff all in one trusted and engaging network. Inspirational learning is at the heart of everything we do, we understand the distinctive learning needs of boys and girls and consistently deliver some of the best academic results in the North of England. We also prepare our pupils for life beyond school. A key part of that preparation is to welcome leaving students into a lifelong relationship with their fellow alumni and their school. The Development Office commits to delivering the benefits of choosing a Hymers education long after a pupil has left the school, as one of our alumni said to us recently "You may leave Hymers, but Hymers never leaves you"
