At Halliford School we are preparing to mark our Centenary and celebrate the life-changing education that we are proud to have offered generations of Hallifordians since 1921.

This is a wonderfully exciting time to join the Halliford School student community as we prepare to mark our Centenary and celebrate the life-changing education that we are proud to have offered generations of Hallifordians since 1921. Halliford School has changed a great deal over the last one hundred years, and that process of change continues apace. We are fully committed to offering our students the very best opportunities and helping them to embrace the challenges posed by a fast-changing world as we enable them to become the very best versions of themselves that they can possibly be.

During lockdown, we worked tirelessly to provide new ways of reaching out to our students and their families. We offered high quality interactive remote learning but also adapted and developed our first-class pastoral care and co-curricular provision to ensure that day to day life for our students was kept as normal as possible in a time of great uncertainty. We rejoiced in being back together as a school family on our beautiful site last September, and we reflected carefully on how we have all changed and how we can continue to best equip our students to prepare for anything the world has to set before them. Hallifordians are encouraged and inspired to be creative and resilient as well as intellectually curious and superb team players; as we continue to offer them a wide range of challenges and exciting opportunities.

As young Hallifordians, we recognise that a child’s potential could lie anywhere – so we ensure that every student is exposed to a vast array of opportunities and experiences. We then pride ourselves on identifying and honing their strengths to make the most of their natural abilities, while working hard with them to develop any areas that might need further improvement. We are able to offer small class sizes which enable personalised teaching and learning strategies suitable for our boys. Our co-educational Sixth Form then provides our senior students with the opportunities to excel in a more independent environment as they prepare to use the skills and knowledge fostered at Halliford to prepare them for success as they continue their educational journey out into the world beyond.

We recognise that the environment in which a child learns is just as important as what they learn. Renowned for our outstanding pastoral care, we work hard to create a community where our students can come together, where they are encouraged to flourish, where they can feel safe and comfortable, confident and proud, stimulated and inspired and, most of all, happy. We place the mental health of our students at the very forefront of our provision and work closely with parents and members of the local community to offer our students all the support they need to flourish and excel. We also offer a wide variety of co-curricular activities where we aim to provide our students with the chance to immerse themselves in a whole host of activities beyond the classroom. As a small school, we are extremely fortunate to have many outstanding facilities on our beautiful site nestled alongside the River Thames and the last three years have witnessed significant capital investment in our school.

We challenge and support our students to make the most of their abilities but also to learn how to take responsibility for their progress and to be resilient. This is a school where every achievement, however small, is noticed and every individual’s successes are celebrated as a member of the Halliford family. Every young person at Halliford School counts and as their Headmaster I can ask nothing more from them other than that they strive to do their very best every day and to have the courage to be not ordinary but extraordinary.

We are working hard to offer opportunities for you to experience what Halliford School has to offer at this time from online interactive virtual events with live question and answer sessions to small private tours of the site.  We very much look forward to personally welcoming you to our school to see for yourself if it is the right school for your child’s future education.
