New Hall School
The best start in life...
From the moment New Hall students first travel up the mile-long, tree-lined avenue that leads to the grand façade of the former Tudor palace, they will be given individual opportunities to grow, learn, be challenged and develop into confident young women and men. New Hall is set in an idyllic and convenient location, on the outskirts of the City of Chelmsford, Essex, just 30 minutes by train from London and within easy reach of all major London airports.
New Hall operates the highly successful ‘diamond model’, where students are educated in co-educational classes from Nursery to age 11 and again at Sixth Form. However, from 11 to 16 they are taught in single-sex lessons.
The main benefits of the diamond model and five years of single-sex teaching derive from the ability to tailor pastoral and academic provision more sensitively and expertly to the needs of young people going through the physical, emotional and social upheaval of adolescence. Young teenagers are liberated from the negative peer pressure of having to perform in mixed classes. Gender stereotyping of subjects is also removed. Girls and boys follow an identical curriculum and do not learn to perceive subjects as being more suited to either girls or boys.
The Sixth Form experience at New Hall is about expanding students’ horizons, both in their specialist areas of study and, more generally, in terms of their personal development.
We aim to educate the whole person: academically, creatively and socially, in a community which also nurtures the spiritual dimensions of human life.
Open Mornings are an ideal way to see New Hall School in action and to meet our students and staff. Tours are available in the Nursery, Preparatory and Senior Divisions, as well as our Sixth Form and boarding provision.
Our upcoming Open Mornings take place on Saturday 26 September 2020.
If you cannot attend the next Open Morning, we will happily arrange a tour at a time to suit you.
