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.”

“You know a school means business academically when even some of the parents describe it as a hothouse. In a highly competitive area for outstanding schools, this one has long stood out (not necessarily unfavourably) as the 11+ crammer, priming its pupils for the highly selective Birmingham secondary schools. But while this remains a big draw for many parents, it’s now only part of the picture. In a world where prep schools have evolved, so has Hallfield, which now goes up to 13+ (taking the pressure of families whose children are perhaps not ready for the 11+) and whose enrichment has catapulted the school into producing far more rounded children.”

“Hallfield is a nurturing school where academic ambition is balanced with pastoral and extra-curricular and the kids enthuse about the quirks like the hen house, Head Master’s dogs and the masterstroke of engaging so many big names – dance lessons with Strictly alumni, cooking with Michelin-starred chefs or visits from authors.”
