New Hall School

New Hall School is a leading independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 3-18. Founded in 1642, New Hall School, Chelmsford, is the oldest Catholic school in the UK that has always taken girls, and the largest Catholic boarding and day school in England.   

At New Hall we operate the highly successful ‘diamond model’ structure, i.e. co-education in the Preparatory School (ages 3-11), single-sex education in the Boys’ Division and Girls’ Division (11-16) and co-education in the Sixth Form (16-18). In this way, New Hall provides the best of both worlds: the benefits of a co-educational environment together with the advantages of girls and boys being taught separately at Key Stages 3 and 4. 

The provision of single-sex education during formative years enables students to grow in confidence, whilst enjoying an education that is specifically tailored and that recognises the different ways in which boys and girls learn.

New Hall is a strong and thriving community, set in a stunning location, just 30 minutes by train from London. Students can board from ages 7-18 in one of six boarding houses. High academic expectations and achievements, together with outstanding pastoral care and exceptional drama, music and sports facilities and provision, together make New Hall a wonderful place to be educated. At New Hall, the ethos is inspired by the founding Religious Community, the Canonesses of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre. The school welcomes all who support its ethos.
