Fulneck school is an independent boarding school, situated in the Fulneck Moravian Settlement, in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, England. It provides education for pupils between the ages of 3 and 18.

History[edit]

In 1753 and 1755, The Boys' and Girls' Schools were opened by the Moravian Church.[1] In 1994 the two schools became one. The Moravian Brethren and Sisters' communal houses are now, also, part of the school.

In 2008 the school reopened a building and renamed it the Robinson Building, which now serves as a learning centre for maths, geography, art and food technology

When Fulneck first opened the pupils would sleep at the top of the church. Now the school has boarding facilities.
