The Curriculum

Younger children enjoy an exciting, hands-on, thematic-based curriculum including Forest School in our extensive onsite woodland. Older children work towards 13+ CE or scholarship and finish with a post-exam programme second to none, ensuring they are truly prepared for senior school.

Games & The Arts

Opportunities for creative design, art, music, drama and sport are outstanding as demonstrated by the children’s success at Year 8. In sport, we hope to instil in all our pupils a love of taking exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Pastoral Care

First and foremost, we set out to ensure that our pupils are happy, healthy and well supported to meet the numerous and varied challenges that their childhood will throw at them.  Whilst we cannot predict the future, we support each child according to their individual need. The main school house provides a home-from-home for the boarders who enjoy an action-packed programme of evening and weekend activities with their friends.

Recent Scholarships

In 2018, 65% of Year 8 pupils gained a scholarship or award to their senior school. These included Academic (11), Sport (20), Creative Design and Art (7), Music (4) and All Round (4).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

At All Hallows we believe we are doing something very distinctive and as a result, our pupils are achieving superb outcomes. Ensuring our children’s happiness and well-being is at the heart of everything we do and we believe every child has a contribution to make to our community.
