Special Events

Sarum Hall places great emphasis on having a ‘family feel’ and therefore the ability to unite staff, parents and pupils alongside extended family is extremely important to us. Our Special Events provide us with the opportunity to share good work and performances with a wider audience, and to the benefit of the entire school community.

Open Day

Our annual Saturday Open Day each Spring Term welcomes girls and their families to view work within their classrooms and around school. Parents are entertained by performances by the choirs and at the end of the morning there is a fiercely contested netball match between the current Year 6 and leavers from the previous year.

Old Girls are warmly invited to attend our Open Day. It’s the perfect way to catch up and learn what our leavers have been up to since we saw them last, as well as allowing them to see how Sarum Hall has changed over the years.

Grandparents’ Day

For this very special day, we encourage girls to invite their grandparents to visit the school and see some of their work. Our visitors are entertained by a pupil concert followed by a tour of the school and a special tea in the dining hall.

Parents’ Day

On Parents’ Day, the parents of girls in Nursery and Reception are invited to spend time in class with their daughters and get ‘hands-on’ experience of exciting ,and occasionally messy, activities such as construction, puppet theatre, cooking, art and crafts and reading. The girls love showing off their classroom and obviously enjoy their parents taking part. It is also a great opportunity for parents to meet each other, something which might otherwise prove difficult during a busy term.

Harvest Festival

We celebrate Harvest Festival with a service at our local church, St Mary’s. The generous harvest contributions donated by our families each year are taken to the Simon Community, a homeless centre in Kentish Town.

Christmas

Our annual carol service at St Mary’s Church is held just before the end of the autumn term. Nativity plays are performed for parents by Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 classes. All the girls enjoy traditional festive parties at the end of the term.

Summer productions

As well as the traditional Nativity plays at Christmas, at the end of the summer term, Nursery and Reception girls present a short musical play to parents. Year 6 pupils work throughout their final term on a full-scale production, performed for families on two nights during their last week at Sarum Hall.

“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.
