Hawley is a lively house for girls in Years 9 and 10. Girls in Hawley are able to thrive and reach their full potential during these important formative years.
Boarding in Hawley supports individuals in their pursuit of academic excellence. We achieve this by giving all boarders single study rooms and set times in which to study. Resident teachers are on hand to guide students through these important times.
Hawley girls also know how to have fun. Weekly activities, such as debating, cooking, swimming and gym training are all popular, as are the regular trips, for example to the theatre and places of cultural interest. Hawley boarders are well represented at the many clubs and societies on offer and readily take up opportunities to develop their leadership and organisational skills.
We seek to create a family atmosphere where every girl is known and affirmed and feels an integral part of the New Hall family.

Full BoardingFull Boarding
The majority of boarders at New Hall are full boarders, staying at school throughout the term and going home for exeat weekends, half term breaks and school holidays. With structure and routine, they have every opportunity to achieve their potential, both academically and socially. A full programme of co-curricular and house activities means that there is always something to do.
Weekly BoardingWeekly Boarding
Freed from a daily school journey, Hawley weekly boarders can concentrate on academic study while having extra time to invest in their co-curricular interests and talents, such as music, sport or drama. Weekly boarders may either depart on Fridays or remain for Saturday activities. Most weekly boarders choose to return on Sunday evenings, although they may return on Monday mornings if they prefer.
Students who flexi-board for two or three nights per week in Hawley are often active in many aspects of school life. They benefit from the ability to stay at New Hall with friends after a day of lessons, sport, music and other activities
