Froebelian Founder Miss Hoe

The Froebelian School Captains and Mrs Dodds marked the 82nd anniversary of the death of the founder of the School – Miss Hoe – today, visiting the grave at Horsforth Cemetery with red roses.

The School’s founder opened the Froebelian doors in 1913 at 11 Riseholme Terrace (known today as 59 New Road Side) for just 10 pupils – no mean feat in itself, as relation Valery Dyas said: “A girl born into her situation would have had ahead of her usual prospect – marriage motherhood.  However, Mary wanted more from life.”

Arrange a visit to the school, you can meet some of our staff and pupils.

The Froebelian Flyers

This year we have introduced Froebelian Flyers. Each week staff nominate pupils who they believe have best met the characteristics of one of the flyers.
