At Halliford School we strongly believe that every person should be seen as an individual with their own personality, talents and skills and that it is this individuality that we seek to encourage and develop at all stages of their education. We encourage and support Hallifordians to flourish and become the very best version of themselves that they can possibly be.
We warmly welcome you to visit us at our next open events. To book visit: www.hallifordschool.co.uk
About the school
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 that 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 School community.
- Total Pupils: 445 (85 in Sixth Form)

Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees
The School offers scholarships up to the value of 10% per annum of the annual tuition fees for entry in Year 7, Year 9 and in the Sixth Form. The scholarships are awarded for academic, artistic, dramatic, musical and sporting excellence. All awards are offered at the Governors’ discretion and may be reviewed at any time in light of the scholar’s performance. Before a child can be considered for a scholarship, the Registration Form must be completed and returned to the Registrar together with a non-refundable fee of £125. For overseas candidates, a registration fee of £150 is required.
School Fees are payable in full on, or before, the first day of every term. The fees cover the normal curriculum together with most books and stationery. Public examination costs, however, are dependent upon the subject taken; consequently, they are invoiced as additional items which must be paid for.
The school also offers a number of optional extras; School Trips, School Lunches, School Bus Service, Fees Refund Scheme, AXA PPP Healthcare Scheme and PTA Subscription. Where a parent agrees to one or more of these extras being taken they will be charged as additional items on the termly invoice. School trips are charged for separately using online payment system ParentPay, and Music Tuition (Instruments and Voice) is invoiced directly from the music teacher. Personal Accident and Dental Insurance is included in the fees.
Fees and charges are reviewed annually and the Governors endeavour to restrict any fee increases to an annual increase effective from September.
Halliford School prepares its students for GCSE, A Level and entry to Further Education. The principal criteria are therefore academic and based on the School’s assessment as to whether a prospective candidate is suitable for the academic programme. The School will not accept students for whom success at GCSE and progression to the Sixth Form would be an unrealistic expectation. Progression to the Upper Sixth is dependent on a satisfactory performance in the Lower Sixth.
The family nature of the School is underlined by the fact that brothers and sisters are usually offered a place as long as they meet the minimum academic entry requirements. In addition, parental commitment to the School and its ethos is as important a factor as academic success when offers of places are made.
