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.

School Day

School opens at 8.15am and there is supervision in the playground until the girls go to their classroom at 8.25am. A breakfast club is available from 7.30am at an additional cost.

School assembly takes place at 8.45am four times per week; House meetings or form time occur once each week.

All girls enjoy a half-hour morning break with a snack provided by the school. Breaks take place outdoors in the playground and the garden. Lunch is also followed by outdoor play.

Leaving times for each year group are staggered between 3pm and 3.30pm. After-school clubs and homework sessions finish at 4.15pm – 4.30pm.

“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 trusting and caring environment.”

“Why did we choose Sarum Hall? Its reputation and our observations on the school’s value system and pastoral care, and how they raise the girls in addition to educating them. Also their commitment to music, the arts and extra-curricular activities.”

Covid-19 Curriculum

We have transferred our usual educational provision into a Remote Learning Programme which maintains the curriculum input for pupils from Reception up to Year 6. The programme replicates our days in school with live lessons delivered for all subjects. Our programme can be accessed via the Sarum Hall Remote Learning Portal. The school will remain open for the Nursery class and Key Worker children until Monday 8th March, when we welcome back pupils in all year groups.
