The Curriculum

A creative approach is enabling All Hallows children to think critically to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems. Younger children enjoy an exciting, hands-on, thematic-based curriculum, including Forest School in our extensive onsite woodland. Older children also enjoy a broad curriculum working towards 13+ CE or academic scholarship.

Games & The Arts

Outstanding opportunities for creative design and art, in the state-of-the-art Creative Centre, and also for music and drama. Our process-driven approach to sport is teaching our children to be intelligent games players and aims to instil a lifelong love of sport.

Pastoral Care

First and foremost, we set out to ensure that our pupils are happy, healthy and well supported to meet the numerous and varied challenges that their childhood will throw at them. Being both an educationalist and a psychologist, our Head is ideally placed to ensure the school provides an optimal environment for the children to thrive. Whilst we cannot predict the future, we support each child according to their individual needs.

Recent Scholarships

 In the last three years, 62% of Year 8 pupils gained a scholarship or award to their senior school. These included academic (14), sport (35), creative design and art (25), music (7), drama (7) and all round (16).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We value each and every child for who they are, as well as their contribution school life, celebrating individual milestones along their educational journey. Our aim is to provide a secure, happy and inclusive community where they will develop the inner confidence to be the best that they can be.

Outstanding Characteristics

Set in an idyllic setting in rural Somerset, All Hallows is within easy reach of Bath, Frome and Bruton. It is a truly independent country prep school where a creative approach and academic endeavour happily coexist and where children are thriving.
