Don't take our word for it

Read all the latest reviews for Hallfield School from a range of independent publications who review the best private schools in the UK.

“In an educationally competitive marketplace, Hallfield School in Birmingham has carved out a niche with its ‘three months to 13 years’ offering and a headmaster whose enthusiasm for educating the whole child is infectious. With a surprising 22 acres, it’s a city school with a rural feel, and a palpably friendly vibe that envelops a core of solid academic achievement.”

“Long regarded as a ‘proper’ academic prep that primes its pupils for entry to the excellent, highly selective Birmingham secondary schools, Hallfield’s success in doing this is still a big draw for parents. But what constitutes an excellent prep school is evolving and Hallfield is too, exemplified by the change in its strap line from ‘outstanding 11+ results’ to ‘happy, secure, purposeful’. The heavily knowledge-based curriculum is developing to become one that also emphasises skills, creativity and the encouragement of curiosity.”
