The Headmaster's Welcome

    A very warm welcome to Halliford School. Halliford is a school based on strong family values where we know and respect every student as an individual. We encourage and support Hallifordians to flourish and become the best version of themselves that they can possibly be.

    We aim for excellence by being academically ambitious but at the same time academically sensitive. We inspire Hallifordians within a community that is founded on high quality teaching and learning, outstanding pastoral care and first class sporting, cultural and extra-curricular 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. 

    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 are extremely fortunate as a small school to have many outstanding facilities on our beautiful site nestled alongside the River Thames.

    We challenge and support our students to make the most of their abilities but also to learn how to take responsibility for their progress. Students who need additional support are identified and nurtured to achieve their very best with additional support from our Learning Support staff. 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.

    We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities where we aim to provide our students with the chance to immerse themselves in a whole host of activities outside the classroom.

    Every young person at Halliford School counts and as their Headmaster I can ask nothing more from them than that they strive to do their very best every day and to have the courage to be, not ordinary, but extraordinary.

    There is no better way to experience the distinctive culture and ethos of our School and I warmly invite you to come and visit us in person at our Open Days or to book an individual tour. I look forward to welcoming you to our school to see for yourself if it is the right school for your child’s future education.
