Our Welcome to Halliford; a warm-hearted School based on strong family values where we are proud to know and be respectful of 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. Our co-educational Sixth Form then provides all our students with the skills to excel in a more independent environment as they prepare to continue their educational journey beyond the Halliford community.
You are warmly invited to attend one of our upcoming Open Days.

I also value the focus on emotional intelligence and the way that everyone at Webber cares, it gives me great warmth as a parent knowing that Ethan's needs are met emotionally as well as academically.”
Mrs Paula Hosken, Year 8 Parent
“Rosie has never been happier since she joined Webber, and I know that your school and all the fantastic staff and students are the reason for this. She is even considering the idea of staying at school and doing A-levels, something she had never wanted to do, which makes me almost burst with happiness!”
Mrs Stephanie Dearn, Year 11 Parent
In Early Years we are confident that your child will experience the best possible introduction to their education.

"We celebrate individuals at Colchester High School – giving each of our boys and girls the education they need to make the most of their personal talents and potential."
At Colchester High School we celebrate the individual. Our small class sizes and high-quality teaching are the two key characteristics that the success of our school is built on, allowing us to offer a tailored education to each individual boy and girl in the school.
Working with a small class, a good teacher can get to know each pupil as an individual and identify their strengths and needs. This allows them to know what motivates them and how to best help them progress. Our great teachers are specialists in their subject and this expert teaching in music, French, ICT and PE is accessed by children at every stage of the school, right from nursery.
Our small class sizes and high-quality teaching also allow us to offer strong pastoral care. We know our boys and girls with all of their enthusiasms, fears and dreams. This allows us to support their on a spiritual, moral, social and cultural education in a focused and tailored way, ensuring that they develop the kind of personal qualities our society needs.
Parents who visit our school always remark on how happy the children are. It’s no coincidence that we place such an emphasis on providing excellent pastoral care.
Good pastoral care is about making children feel at ease so that they can thrive at school. That means making every child feel valued and cared for, which in turn means knowing them well, having good relationships with their families, and offering them the right support.
Read more about our Pastoral Care here.
One of our pupils is proving he is the cream of the crop after passing a test to become the member of an exclusive club which accepts only the smartest of people.
Ten year old Toby Liu from Walsall became a member of the high IQ society Mensa after scoring an impressive 160, ranking him in the top 1% of the population.
As one of the youngest to sit the test – the minimum age is 10 and a half – Toby’s achievements are even more astounding.
"New experiences enrich children’s lives and help them decide where their interests and passions lie."
For one lesson a week the timetable is collapsed and given over to pupil enrichment. The programme draws on the interests and talents of our teachers and is a chance for pupils to enjoy pastimes that are beyond the confines of the examination curriculum. The activities are carefully planned to ensure there is something to appeal to all pupils.
Students from Hydesville Tower School in Walsall are celebrating excellent GCSE results today, with over 97% of the new style exams being awarded a “standard pass” or better at the new grade 4 and above. 75% of the cohort achieved a “strong pass” at grade 5 and above in English Language and Mathematics. More pleasingly, at a time of much curriculum reform designed to make examinations more challenging, 50% of the grades achieved in Mathematics alone were grade 7 or above.
Over 97% awarded a “standard pass” or new grade 4 and above
Hydesville Tower School students have outperformed a number of national average results: 100% of Hydesville pupils achieved a grade 4 or above in English Language, with the national average being 64.9%. In Mathematics 91.7% of Hydesville pupils achieved grade 4 or above, significantly exceeding the national average of 68.9%.
Sameer Ali (pictured above) excelled, gaining six grade As, two grade 8s and a grade 7.
The 2017 GCSE results build on the excellent results seen in previous years and reflect the school’s annual focus on improving the proportion of top grades. This year, 37% of grades were at A*-A (with the national average being 22.1%), 72% of grades were A*-B and overall 99% of grades were at A*-C. Hydesville Tower School is a non-selective school, so these results reflect tremendous achievement and progress being made over the course of the last five years.
Miss Kam Nijjar, Head of the Senior School, added: “It has been a nervous wait for the pupils who sat their examinations this year, particularly as they faced the challenges of GCSE reform making examinations even more demanding. I am proud of what the pupils have achieved and they deserve every success.”
Slindon College, based within the stunning location of Slindon House, West Sussex is an inclusive independent day and boarding school for boys 8yrs - 18yrs. Our aim is to help each individual find the way that will work best for them to believe, inspire and succeed.
Come and see our school on Saturday 7th March 2020 between 10am-12noon to get a taste of life at Slindon College.
There will be full site tours available with the chance to meet all of the staff.
We kindly request you register your interest to attend the Open Morning by emailing your name, the child's name and age to [email protected] so we can be prepared to welcome you on the day.
When considering Boarding for your child it is important to ask as many questions as possible. We recognise that moving to boarding is a big decision for a family to make and may be a significant change from prep school life. Please contact us to discuss your family's requirements. Call the School Office on 01483 276377 or email [email protected]
Year 11 pupils maintained last year’s record GCSE results, with 26% of all grades a 9, and 55% of all grades being 9/8. In addition, 68% of all grades were 9-7 (equivalent to A*-A) and 99% of students gained 5 GCSEs at 9 to 4 grade.
The overall pass rate was 97%, with 50% of pupils achieving 8 or more A*-A (or equivalent). A quarter of the cohort achieved 10 or more A*-A (or equivalent). Grades in some subjects were exceptional, with more than 80% of pupils achieving 9-7 (equivalent to A*/A).
This year is the first which sees the new grading system adopted across almost all subjects. The change from letters to numbers, with more options for the grades, was designed to coincide with the upgrading of GCSEs to make them more rigorous. Although the two marks schema cannot really be compared directly, there are now three number grades corresponding to A*-A, 9,8 and 7, designed to give more differentiation at the top end.
"We are delighted with these results, particularly given that staff and pupils have been working towards significant changes to the exams and the grading schema. We’d like to offer congratulations to all of our Year 11 pupils and to the Common Room who have worked so hard to help them achieve their goals." - Mr David Boggitt, Deputy Head Academic.
A Level Success
Students achieved an excellent set of A Level results this year, with 80 per cent of grades at A*-B and an overall pass rate of 100 per cent.
Sixth Formers experienced major changes to A Levels in England, with a move away from coursework and modular exams throughout their courses. Yet they scooped 44 per cent of A Level passes in the A*/A category and 80 per cent at A*-B.
"We have been working with some of the most significant reforms in decades, so we’re all delighted with these results, which show just how hard our students and staff have worked. The vast majority of our leaving Sixth Formers have achieved the grades they needed for further studies and we wish them all continued success in the next stage of their academic careers." - Mr David Boggitt, Deputy Head Academic
For details on upcoming open afternoons, please visit farnborough-hill.org

To understand this ethos, one really has to visit to see the blend of academic rigour and outstanding pastoral care that are delivered so successfully. Life at Farnborough Hill is vibrant and busy - an environment that fosters energy, friendliness and fun, establishing a positive can-do attitude which develops the self-confidence the girls need for bright and fulfilling futures.

Excellent A level results
Once again, Croydon High School has maintained its local reputation for excellent academic results with a 100% pass rate at A Level a fifth of all girls achieved straight A*- A grades. Over 38% of all grades awarded were A* or A, highlighting the number of highly aspirational girls in this cohort.
Currently a fantas c 77% of the cohort are leaving Croydon High to go on to their rst choice des na on – almost 50% of places at pres gious Russell Group universi es.
Croydon High’s Headmistress, Emma Pattison commented that this year she has been particularly aware of the breadth of experience and learning the girls have enjoyed during their sixth form years which has led them to make informed and diverse choices for their next steps.
Record breaking GCSE results
Croydon High is celebrating a truly outstanding set of results achieved by their GCSE class of 2017. Almost three quarters of all exam grades awarded were A*- A making this the most successful GCSE cohort in the history of the highly respected Selsdon school.
It has been widely reported that in the absence of AS level grades, top universities will be relying much more heavily on GCSE indicators when it comes to making offers.
So with 40% of Croydon High girls awarded a remarkable 7 A* (or more) grades, these results also provide the girls with a springboard to go on to the very best universi es in the world.
With a 100% pass rate, an impressive 91% of grades at A*- B and almost half of all grades awarded being A* the message is clear; this is a high achieving cohort at a high performing school.
Please note: Croydon High School follows the IGCSE curriculum in Maths and English therefore the new grades 1-9 do not apply.
GO-ED – Girls Only Education.
This is how we describe our attitude to the education of girls and the unique culture we have developed at Croydon High.
Why GO-ED not CO-ED?
We believe our supportive girls-only environment offers enormous benefits. Year after year we see how girls flourish in secure happy surroundings where they can discover who they really are and where they want to go. In a single sex school, there is undoubtedly less pressure to conform to stereotype, particularly in academic or sporting choices.
Croydon High girls take all three sciences – and do well - and the level of participation, determination and success on the sports fields is something we are particularly proud of.
But, we always stress that we are offering a single-sex education and not a single-sex life. The girls are not kept away from boys – we encourage and enable shared activities between ourselves and another local Independent boys’ school. Particularly in sixth form, we recognise that there is much to be gained from these activities which can be academic or extra- curricular as well as social.
We are proud to be part of the Girls' Day School Trust:
Families are welcome to visit the School at any point during the year, not just on Open Days. If you would like to arrange an appointment or register for an Open Event, please contact the Admissions Department - [email protected]
Windermere School has now introduced, in addition to the International Baccalaureate Diploma, the International Baccalaureate Career-related programme.
The IBCP prepares students for the world of work, as well as developing a student’s personal qualities. Windermere School was one of only eleven schools worldwide, and the only school in the UK, to pilot what was to become the IBCP.
Students choose two to four IB subjects which are taught alongside those completing the Diploma Programme. They would also choose a BTEC to meet the requirements of their career-related course.
Windermere's experience shows them that the course incorporates the vision, principles and academic rigour of IB, but also provides a personalised career-related pathway. The IBCP develops transferable and lifelong skills with academic strength in a practical field leading to further education, higher education, apprenticeships or the work place.
Students in the IBCP develop skills that are genuinely valued by employers. The programme’s curriculum framework develops:
These capabilities are complementary to the accredited skills students gain as a requirement of their career-related studies, through the BTEC qualifications which Windermere School can offer.
This is a video introduction to our School.
To gain a true insight into school life at Skippers Hill, we recommend that you visit us so that you can sample the atmosphere and, most of all, meet our staff and pupils.
To book a visit, please contact the school office on 01825 830 234.
Take a closer look at our unique surroundings in this short video:
Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School in Five Ashes recently unveiled its two year development plan, which will include a brand new Creative Arts block, extended Early Years provision for children aged from two years, as well as a new science area.
Bellevue Education, which acquired the school over three years ago, will be investing £500K between now and 2016, leading to further developments in the school’s facilities as well as areas of the school’s curriculum. Site work will also involve upgrading the school’s sporting facilities including the swimming pool and the outdoor tennis and netball courts, and extending the school’s Early Years provision to enable children to join Kindergarten from the age of two.
The non-selective, co-educational school, which teaches pupils from East Sussex and West Kent and recently featured in the Sunday Times Top 100 Prep School list, has already undergone a number of developments since joining Bellevue Education in 2010, including the re-opening of the school’s Kindergarten, new state-of-the-art classrooms for Years 6, 7 and 8, and a new ICT suite.
Curriculum innovation will also be a major part of forthcoming plans. This will focus on Maths and ICT as well as rolling out the successful weekly ‘Woodland Explorers’ programme introduced in 2013, so that all year groups can benefit from the scheme that takes learning outdoors, making the most of the school’s 22 acres of fields and woodland. This programme has already proved to be effective in providing a stimulating learning experience, keeping the children enthused and engaged long after the activity has taken place and helping them embark on other areas of learning with enthusiasm and confidence.
UK Schools Director of Bellevue Education, Steven Wade, comments: “Ahead of defining future plans for Skippers Hill School, we reached out to those closest to the school – the staff, the pupils and the parents - to obtain their views on the ways in which they felt Skippers Hill could be further developed. The findings were incorporated into the two year development plan which was presented to parents and staff at a special event held earlier this week and I am pleased to say that the response has been incredibly positive.”
When asked about the development plans, Head Teacher, Tim Lewis, said; “This is great news for Skippers. The school has been on this site for nearly 60 years, so upgrades and investments need to be made. What is important though is that we ensure these changes are made without changing the ethos of the school. The school prides itself on offering its pupils a welcoming and stimulating learning environment which celebrates each child’s character and capabilities, where they can be themselves and achieve to the best of their ability. These plans will definitely support this.”
Site work will commence in the Spring Term and continue over the first part of the Easter break. It will be undertaken by building company Vivid Green (www.vividgreen.co.uk), experienced in working with schools and ensuring buildings fit in aesthetically with its surrounding areas. Efforts will be made to ensure that disruption to neighbouring residential properties is kept to a minimum.
Phase One taking place this year will see the development of the Creative Arts block, the improvement of the outdoor courts, as well as extending the Early Years provision for children aged two to five years.
Next year’s Phase Two will involve upgrading the swimming pool, renewing changing areas and the development of a new science area.

Quinton House School aims to provide a ‘family’ environment in which the character, personality and individuality of each pupil are developed.
The School seeks to help each pupil to achieve their individual potential and to promote their academic, personal, social and moral development. The School aims to fire imaginations and inspire each pupil, fostering a lifelong love of learning, along their educational journey and into adulthood.
Care for the individual as a whole and about his or her personal development and extracurricular involvement complements the emphasis on academic achievement, and demonstrates the richness of the school’s provision for its pupils.
A high calibre staff, who are dedicated and enthusiastic, work as a team in the pursuit of the school’s aims. Quinton House is unashamedly ambitious (although not pretentious), striving continually to improve itself, and to enhance its local, national and international reputation.

Our Sixth Form’s strength comes from its size and from our university-style teaching methods. The sheer range of subject combinations and interests that girls pursue makes the Sixth Form exciting and its size means that everyone knows each other well.
There is a good influx of new Sixth Formers into the Lower Sixth alongside those who have joined the School in earlier years, and this, together with a mix of Day Girls and Boarders (with flexi-boarding available too) mean that there is no one model of Sixth Former at Badminton.
From Anthropology to Filmmaking, Neuroscience to International Development, Aeronautical Engineering to Global Sustainable Development: Badminton girls go on to do anything and everything at some of the most prestigious universities in the world. We have a strong success rate for applications to Oxford and Cambridge. Read more here.
Bristol has its share of very good schools, and we know that choosing somewhere for your daughter isn’t easy.
So what’s different about Badminton?
Our history, our unusual ethos of teaching and learning and our careful balance of intellectual firepower with courtesy and support all set us apart. There is an important place in the world for strong female communities, and Badminton is one of these. We have excellent facilities and some of the best boarding and pastoral care provision of any school. Girls at Badminton come from all over the globe and know that they can try anything, study anything, do anything, and they do. No one here is judged on superficialities, and Badminton girls rightly learn that their future can be anything they want it to be.
