AdminHistoryHunmanby Hall School was a residential school for girls and occupied the premises of Hunmanby Hall near Filey, North Yorkshire. The property had been previously owned by Lord Nunburnholme, but was purchased by the Wesleyan committee for secondary education in 1927, with the intention of converting it into an 'all girls' school. It opened in September 1928, with Miss Hargreaves as Headmistress, and provided education for 250 junior and secondary pupils for over sixty years until economic recession made it difficult to attract new pupils to the school and led to its closure in 1991. During the Second World War the school was evacuated by Sep 1940, with the senior school in Ilkley and the junior and middle school in the Lake District. The headmistresses of Hunmanby Hall School were Frances Hargreaves 1928-1955, Helen Darby 1955-1967, Mary Bray 1967-1979, Joan Jefferson 1979-1986 and Jean Rutherford 1986-1991. The property was later sold for redevelopment in 1996.
