VIRTUAL OPEN DAYS
Come and see why Hall School Wimbledon is a truly happy and unique place for pupils to learn.
Due to social distancing measures, we will now be holding our Open Day events virtually in September and October, due to the Government restrictions in place in respect of Covid-19. We will be running two virtual Open Days on Thursday 24th September at 5.30pm and Saturday 10th October at 9.30am, for families interested in Junior and Senior School entry and one for those joining the Sixth Form, a date to be confirmed soon.
Each event will include a live welcome and introduction by our Headmaster and presentations on aspects of life at Hall School Wimbledon. We hope to include additional elements including a recorded pupil tour of the school, footage of the grounds and buildings, plus specific Admissions information for each entry stage.

Welcome to Hall School Wimbledon, the inclusive, independent
co-educational school for pupils aged 5 to 18.
We believe that anything is possible and that every pupil must engage fully in their own learning. Our nurturing pastoral care and broad curriculum supports your child on their journey.
This year 42% of pupils achieved the top grades of 9-7, with 97% of pupils achieved grades 9-4 including Maths and English and 86% of pupils gaining 8 or more GCSE's including English and Maths. These successes enable our Year 11 leavers to take up places at leading academic and creative Sixth Forms. Our results significantly exceed those of other comparable non-selective schools. However, our academic ethos is shaped by a view that cultivating characteristics of resilience, adaptability, confidence, good humour, collaboration and empathy are just as important to our pupils’ long-term success. These are the qualities which make our Senior School leavers effective independent learners, and future leaders of society in a challenging environment.
Pupils start to take responsibility for getting their own work done, which enables them to consolidate and review their learning each day, while maintaining a healthy balance between school and family life.
Hall School Wimbledon’s story began in 1990, with a group of nine children in Wimbledon Village Hall. Our school was founded with a philosophy of doing things differently. Since then, we have grown. Now part of Chatsworth Schools, we educate boys and girls aged 4 to 16, with pupils achieving success in academic, musical, sporting and artistic spheres. Our leavers are confident, equipped with tools to embrace the challenges that lie ahead.
Part of HSW, Oberon Fields is a nine acre site providing a beautiful, refurbished pavilion and extensive playing fields at Lindisfarne, Wimbledon, SW20 ONQ. In addition to Sports Day, most of the school’s sporting activities such as football, cricket, rugby, athletics, rounders and soft ball take place on the site.
The Oberon Fields and Pavilion have been redeveloped to become a hub for curriculum enrichment, with teaching spaces for outdoor learning, performing arts and cookery as well as refurbished changing rooms for boys and girls. Phase Two will constitute the refurbishment of the tennis court, to include a new multi-use sporting facility and Phase Three will involve the creation of allotment areas and orchards for growing and gardening projects as well as a 'forest trail'.
This facility will be open to the pupils of HSW in September 2020.

Why parents love Hall School Wimbledon
Outside, children were seen playing exceptionally well together, exploring the outdoor world by riding on bikes, playing in the Wendy house or on the climbing equipment. "
Both the indoor and outdoor areas are exceptionally well resourced and are set up to provide vibrant and stimulating learning environments. "
Outstanding provision in the early years prepares children for Year 1 exceptionally well. "
Children now make exceptional progress from their starting points because the learning is so well tailored to their developmental needs."
There is an excellent balance of child-initiated and adult-led activities. All are challenging, motivating and engage children’s imagination. Relationships between adults and children are exceptionally strong; adults know just when to supplement children’s learning through questioning, task extension and modelling. "
The early years provision is impressive as a result of highly effective leadership, demonstrating excellent knowledge of how children of this age learn and develop. This knowledge is used well, alongside information about children’s learning and progress, to identify the provision’s strengths and areas for development. "
The teachers, who are wonderful, and the practical experiments the children get to make... The family atmosphere and all the lovely traditions, like birthday lunches, Father Christmas coming, Easter egg hunts. The emphasis on exercise. I love that everything is so nicely presented, from the amazing art exhibitions to the displays of the children’s work in the classroom, which makes it such a nice place for the children to be in.
