Take a tour of Fullerton House

As a parent, my experience of Fullerton House has been overwhelmingly positive, it's an environment which caters for each individual child with specialist classes and teachers. What has amazed me is the diversity within the school, they regularly learn about different cultures and nationalities. The small class sizes provide a ‘family feel’ with pastoral care being a priority within the school. I feel that Fullerton House is a school where every child can thrive and achieve their potential.
