Welcome from the Head

I am delighted to welcome you to the All Hallows website, as I begin my time as the seventh Head of this outstanding prep school.

Choosing a school for our children is one of the most important decisions we make as parents and our website aims to provide you with information and facts but more importantly, with an insight into the work we do with the children, helping them to grow and develop from Early Years through to Year 8, when they leave us as confident young people ready to stride out into their senior school.

Happy children are successful children and our first aim for all the pupils is to provide them with a safe and secure environment where they are able to discover who they are, form strong friendships and develop their many talents. In the classroom, beyond the classroom in our stunning grounds and in every activity we offer, the focus is on enjoying new learning, learning how to learn, having a go, developing a good work ethic and acquiring skills that will last well beyond childhood. Each pupil is supported and encouraged by the other boys and girls and by a strong and very committed staff. Whilst protected and nurtured, the children are also challenged and stretched in order to develop their ability to thrive as resilient adults in the future. 

As a Christian school in the Roman Catholic tradition our guiding stars are the two great commandments, to love God and to love our neighbour, and we warmly welcome children from all faiths.

It is not possible to share everything with you through the pages of a website, nor will you be able to experience the genuine warmth of our welcome or the sheer vibrancy of our school community. I would be delighted to meet you, to hear about your hopes for your children and to share with you the energy of the school in action.
