School Life

At the heart of Sarum Hall is a sense of purpose. The balanced and enriched academic curriculum is complemented by a wide range of activities outside the classroom, and opportunities to play and perform. In every aspect of school life, girls are encouraged to develop their learning, thinking and personal skills.

We are a caring community where tolerance and mutual respect are highly valued. Our school is a happy and exciting place to be; girls show concern for others and demonstrate kindness. The foundations laid here – and the friendships made – last a lifetime.

“From an early age, a strong emphasis on resilience and perseverance helps pupils to develop self-understanding and self-discipline.  This is supported by the very warm relationships evident between pupils, their peers and the whole school community which, in turn, helps build confidence in a trusing and caring environment.”  Independent Schools’ Inspectorate report, June 2019
