We are proud of our unrivalled reputation for academic performance. In attending Hallfield, your child will benefit from an enriching, structured and focused curriculum – and one which prioritises both educational attainment and personal development. We help our pupils become independent learners, with the knowledge, skills and curiosity necessary to go far.
Our responsibility doesn’t end with simply preparing your child for the 11+, however. We understand that selecting the right secondary school for your son or daughter is a critical process – and we help and support you in this every step of the way.
As the 11+ approaches, the progress of your child is carefully tracked by the school. We then relay this information direct to you, so that we can together set realistic expectations which properly reflect the abilities and aptitudes of each individual child. During Years 4 and 5 of Prep School, all our parents are invited to a ‘Destinations Information Meeting’, where the process for applying for schools is discussed in some detail. We also explain the school’s pupil tracking system which, over the years, has proven to be extremely reliable.
Each day, your child will receive the best possible education from subject specialists, as we develop the knowledge and skills necessary to their success. At the same time, we keep you up-to-date at all times via the academic planner which pupils are expecting to take home each day. As the transfer to a secondary school approaches in year 5, parents are invited to have an individual meeting in the Autumn Term with the Head Master, and a Destinations Meeting in the Summer Term, at which secondary school options are discussed openly and honestly.
Hallfield has an excellent track record in enabling children to progress successfully to the most selective schools in the area – both maintained and independent. We have very good relationships with our Secondary School catchment, and in the last three years our Leavers have received ninety-seven coveted scholarships to leading Independent Schools. Year in and year out, Hallfield children consistently achieve great things – and it is our aim to work with parents to ensure that your child can match the expectations we set for them, together.
