School Description

New Hall School is a Catholic independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 1-18 years. It is set in a stunning location, dominated by the former Tudor palace of Beaulieu – once owned by Henry VIII – and surrounded by a historic park and gardens. New Hall School operates the highly successful ‘diamond model’, where students are educated in co-educational classes from ages 1 to 11 and at Sixth Form. However, from ages 11 to 16 they are taught in single-sex lessons.

New Hall School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.

New Hall School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Caring School with high standards.”
"> Excellent! We now have three children at New Hall. From Prep through to Sixth Form. My kids have been at two other local independent schools so I am in good position to compare. New Hall's fees are slightly less whilst scoring better on the Value Added score. Better pastoral care. Any issues have always been dealt with fairly and professionally. Excellent boys boarding up to Yr8 - can't comment about boarding Yr9 onwards. Good network of school buses. Beautiful setting. Fantastic extra co-curricular activities. Better than the independent competition for GCSEs/A-levels, close behind/better than KEGs grammar for some subjects. Read the Inspection Reports and compare the results. All round excellent value and the kids are happy. The school has high standards and expectations. High entry requirements.
“Very pleasing to the eye but different on the inside...”
"> When first appearing for an interview at this school, you are swept away by the exceptional grounds and the stories the interviewer tells you. Unfortunately after having a child there for two years, first impressions are just a small picture. The treatment of my son on many occasions wasn't acceptable as they treated him like he was much younger as opposed to a student off to university. Overall it is a school that is very expensive and a place that I wouldn't recommend at all especially with all of the prominent boarding schools close by In Essex and London.
