||Hallfield, founded in 1879, is a happy and thriving day Preparatory School for 460 boys and girls aged between 2 and 11 years. Situated less than 2 miles from the centre of Birmingham, it occupies a 20 acre site in the pleasant area of Edgbaston.|
At the age of 11 the majority of our pupils successfully gain places at local selective maintained Grammar Schools or Independent Schools – and a few move onto boarding schools. The School’s fine academic record includes an impressive list of scholarship successes.
||Central to Hallfield is the well-being and welfare of our boys and girls. To this end we ensure small classes, a wide range of educational opportunities – embracing the academic, musical, artistic, dramatic, sporting and cultural fields – and excellent pastoral care from our dedicated staff.|
Learning is supported by outstanding facilities in all areas of the curriculum.
Our children realise their potential through a determination to work hard. We expect them to, but they do so in an encouraging and friendly environment and we are proud of the feeling of warmth, care and enthusiasm generated by our staff and the children themselves. Hallfield feels like a school where children will be happy and successful – they'll certainly be strongly encouraged towards these goals.
We firmly believe that it is of fundamental importance to find the right school for each child. Printed information can be of some help but nothing can replace a visit to see a school for yourself. We hope that you'll accept this invitation to visit Hallfield – we look forward to meeting you.
||The Upper School and Pre-Prep are the two main sections of the school, though Hallfield is very much one school. Children from the ages of 2 years to 7 years are in the Pre-Prep and Nursery Department, whilst children from 7 years to 11 years form the Upper School.|
For education to be successful there must be a partnership, not only between school and pupil, but also between school and parent and parent and child. To this end, parents are strongly encouraged to keep in close touch with the school throughout their child’s time at Hallfield.
Parents’ evenings and presentation meetings provide an opportunity for parents to talk to academic staff, and regular reports provide a summary and record of each child’s progress. The Head and other members of staff are always happy to discuss children’s progress by appointment.
All parents receive a copy of the School Calendar and Annual School Magazine. The Head's Newsletters (two each term) provide an up-to-date picture of life in the school. Parents are strongly encouraged to support their children at 'home and away' sporting fixtures, as well as concerts, plays and other school events.
