Hymers College is a co-educational independent school day school in Kingston upon Hull, located on the site of the old Botanical Gardens. It is one of the leading schools in the East Riding of Yorkshire and a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference.The school was founded following the death of The Revd John Hymers in 1887, who left a substantial sum in his will for the founding of a boys' school "for the training of intelligence in whatever social rank of life it may be found among the vast and varied population of the town and port of Hull". Construction of the buildings was completed in 1893, and the first pupils arrived in September of that year. The school expanded to include girls incrementally from the 1970s, becoming fully co-educational in 1989.Presently, Hymers educates about 950 pupils aged 8–18 across the Junior and Senior Schools, with about 100 members of the teaching staff. The two major intakes of pupils are at age 8, into Year 4, and age 11, into Year 7. Additionally, some pupils enter at 14, into Year 10, and some at 16, into the Sixth Form. Admissions to the school are based on an examination and interview, or a system of academic tracking from ages 5–8 in its associated preparatory schools: Hessle Mount in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and Froebel House in Hull.
