Hull independent primary school  ‘described as the best show in town’



FROEBEL House is a small,  independent primary school, based  in the Avenues in Hull and has been  serving families for over a hundred  and fifteen years. 

It has been described as “the best  show in town’’ and parent testimonials  regularly say that sending their  child to Froebel was one of the best  decisions they ever made. 

The approach to teaching has a keen  focus on strong principles, respect,  discipline and clear expectations and  standards for all students. The Froebel  community share the school’s values,  appreciate ‘the family feel’ and embrace  the high standards the school promotes.  

The school’s reception class has  been praised by both OFSTED and  Hull City County Council for its  curriculum design and child centred  approach and, despite the disruption of  the past year, the children have thrived  within the classroom setting and have  progressed remarkably well. The  school continues to record extremely  impressive, standardised test scores  for numeracy and literacy, with annual  results, including the very latest, that  are generally between 15 to 20 per  cent above national averages, across  each of the school’s year groups.  Considering the pandemic and the  constraints placed on learning forced  on so many school communities, the  results are outstanding. Froebel’s  Headteacher, Andy Roberts, has  praised the school’s teachers for the  effort and thought they put into their classes’ differentiated learning packs  throughout the lockdown and the  way in which the Froebel community  supported the school’s efforts (and  their children in the process). “The  school is what it is because of the  efforts of the teaching and support  staff to nurture and guide our young  learners positively every day, and, of  course, the trust our parent community  places in us which allows everybody  to use their experience and skill to  teach,’’ he said. 

What is the key to the school’s  success?  

The philosophy of Froebel is to  provide a firm foundation upon  which all aspects of education are  built. It is the school’s belief that  education is a route to spiritual, moral,  social, cultural, physical, and mental  development and well-being. We  believe in equal opportunities for all  children in our school, irrespective of  social background, culture, race, gender  or ability. To ensure future progress  and success, the aim is to provide a  curriculum that is broad and balanced. 

Small class sizes and well qualified and highly experienced  teachers.  

Small class sizes have many advantages. Froebel teachers can  really focus instruction and as a  result, can nurture each student as  an individual and to differentiate  instruction accordingly. A small class  size also means students get to know  each other well, allowing them to develop deep, genuine, and lasting  relationships, within a safe and caring  environment. Froebel has a very  low turnover of staff which ensures  continuity and stability. The teachers  have a wealth of experience, are  highly qualified and the expectations  they place upon themselves are  extremely high. 

Traditional values. 

Froebel has high standards and  expectations for all its children.  Children are taught- and expected to  value and uphold – a sense of fairness  and kindness, personal responsibility,  a strong work ethic and the importance  of being selfless. The children are also  taught that having good manners costs  nothing and that self-discipline and a  strong worth ethic are integral to an  individual’s success. 

A safe & nurturing environment:

The school is immensely proud of  its safe and nurturing environment.  Froebel has an outstanding daily  attendance record, reflecting the desire  of students to attend school. One of  the reasons for this being is that the  school has zero tolerance towards any  nature of bullying and prides itself on  the fact that its diverse and multi-faith  community arrive at school every day,  knowing that their learning experience  is going to be a focused and enjoyable  experience.
