The Curriculum

A creative approach is enabling All Hallows children to think critically and work either independently or collaboratively to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems. Younger children enjoy an exciting, hands-on, thematic-based curriculum, including Forest School in our extensive onsite woodland. Older children also enjoy a broad curriculum working towards 13+ CE or academic scholarship.

Games & The Arts

Opportunities for creative design, art, music, drama and sport are outstanding and we were delighted to be shortlisted for the TES Creativity Awards 2019. Our process-driven approach to sport is teaching our children to be intelligent games players and aims to instil a lifelong love of sport.

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.  Being both an educationalist and a psychologist, our Head is ideally placed to ensure the school provides an optimal environment for the children to thrive. Whilst we cannot predict the future, we support each child according to their individual need.

Recent Scholarships

In 2019, 58% of Year 8 pupils gained a scholarship or award to their senior school. These included Academic (3), Sport (10), Creative Design and Art (5), Music (2), Drama (1) and All Round (8).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Every child has in inherent value which is exceptional and exclusive to them. Our aim is to provide a secure, happy and inclusive community where they will develop the inner confidence and self-esteem necessary to flourish in our rapidly changing world. 

Outstanding Characteristics

Set in an idyllic setting in rural Somerset, All Hallows is within easy reach of Bath, Frome and Bruton. It is a truly independent country prep school where a creative approach and academic endeavour happily coexist and where children are thriving.
