Message from The Development Office

Hymers College was established under the will of Reverend John Hymers as a school: For the training of intelligence in whatever social rank of life it may be found, and since opening in 1893 it has remained true to his wishes. Hymers College is not a school for bright and wealthy children. We want to be able to give families choices and create futures and recognise potential across all sections of our society. There is no difference in student status or treatment, everyone here benefits from a shining future with dedicated teachers, coaches and pastoral care to enable all to thrive.

We make no apology for ambitiously aiming to create a bursary fund large enough to provide financial support so no child is denied the education they deserve. In order for us to achieve this mission, we need support from the Hymers Community. The provision of bursaries supports social mobility and is central to Hymers' ethos. Currently, 12% of our student body are currently receiving some form of financial assistance at a cost of £1 million. Developing a sustainable bursary income will ensure that Hymers remains a vibrant educational environment, reflecting diversity and promoting inclusion. Life here is never one-dimensional, but multi-dimensional. It is all-encompassing and inclusive, no one is ever on the bench.

This in turn will secure the School's position ensuring it is full of the brightest children, not the richest, which will allow us to drive our standards and harness talent. The school has championed social mobility for bright children of Hull and East Yorkshire regardless of background, for many years through our bursary programme, which we wish to continue to offer with the help of regular giving and generous legacy donations from Old Hymerians.

Where you come from is not the point. Where you are going, is.
