New Hall School is pleased to announce that it is hosting a networking event for parents and children in Dubai who are hoping to find out about boarding in the UK. Malcolm Day, MD, Global Head of FX and Treasury Management at RG Trading Dubai, will provide a real insight into choosing the right boarding school for your child. Malcolm is a 30 year veteran of financial markets, having worked at Citibank, HSBC and BBVA, including three years in the Middle East. Malcolm has successfully guided three children through UK boarding school and on to top Russell Group Universities, including the University of Cambridge. As a Governor at New Hall School, Malcolm can also answer questions from families on attending a British boarding school and address any key concerns or queries.

New Hall students are furnished with a spectacular learning environment on a 70-acre site, where they can play outside all year round. Their playground consists of rugby, hockey, and cricket pitches, netball and tennis courts, neatly landscaped grounds, a chapel and a performing arts centre which is home to thriving music, dance and drama departments.

The school, a beautiful former Tudor Palace that once belonged to Henry VIII, is a short 15 minute journey by school coach from Stansted Airport. The sheer scale, splendour and history of our grounds provide a marvellous and memorable setting for any child to be educated. New Hall students are given individual opportunities to grow, learn, be challenged and develop into confident young men and women.

At New Hall, we operate a highly successful ‘diamond model’ structure, i.e. co-education in the Pre-Prep and Preparatory Divisions (ages 3-11), single-sex education in the Boys’ Division and Girls’ Division (11-16) and co-education in the Sixth Form (16-18). In this way, New Hall provides the best of both worlds: the benefits of a co-educational environment together with the advantages of girls and boys being taught separately at Key Stages 3 and 4. The provision of single-sex education during formative years enables students to grow in confidence, whilst enjoying an education that is specifically tailored and that recognises the different ways in which girls and boys learn, whilst still providing opportunities to mix within the exceptional co-curricular activities on offer.
