Welcome from the Head

Thank you for visiting the All Hallows website.  I am delighted that you are interested in learning about our school. 

Here at All Hallows we are doing something very special.  High academic standards are important to us, of course, but alongside this we aim to develop every part of your child so that they learn who they are, what their strengths are, and that they feel really good about themselves.  Nurturing their self-confidence and self-belief forms an important part of our education, so that when they leave us to move onto senior school they are happy, strong, resilient learners who know that it is important to give back to the world in which they live.

We are a boarding and day school and we value the international cultural richness that our pupils from overseas bring to the school.  Our boarders live in the main house where we aim to give them a home from home experience, with a warm and nurturing atmosphere, complete with log fires and Welly boots lined up in the porch!

Our children are busy, happy, energetic and share a love of the outdoor life with a curriculum that allows them to study a broad range of subjects enabling them to find their own particular strengths. Music, performing arts, sport and countless enrichment opportunities are offered to all the children. Our Year 8 pupils leave to study at some of the best senior schools in the country with a large number achieving scholarships.

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.
