New Hall is a Catholic independent boarding & day school for girls and boys aged 1-18. 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. The principles relied on in the selection of students for admission are designed to ensure the school will remain a Catholic school. Applications for admission will be considered from parents and guardians who are in sympathy with the aims and ethos of the school and whose child will benefit from the academic curriculum of the school.
