The Senior School
Welcome to The Senior School
At Hall School Wimbledon we believe that anything is possible and that every pupil must engage fully in his or her own learning. The Senior School years are where children shape their own identities as young adults. Hall School Wimbledon’s nurturing pastoral care and broad curriculum supports your child on this journey.
Of course, results are important. In 2018, 62% of GCSE examinations at Hall School Wimbledon were awarded the top grades 9 to 6. In 2019, 70% of GCSE examinations at Hall School Wimbledon were awarded the top grades 9 to 6 / A* to B. 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 world.
Personable and committed teachers in the Senior School help pupils to navigate the complex teenage years. The small size of the school, with just two classes per year group, means that every child is known as an individual. Your child’s day-to-day wellbeing and academic progress are overseen by a Head of Year, who is available to pupils and parents to discuss any concerns. Furthermore, all pupils in Years 10 and 11 have their own Personal Tutor, introducing them to a more university-style mode of studying during their GCSEs. Hall School Wimbledon is proud to be the only co-educational senior school in Wimbledon: girls and boys have positive role models among the senior pupils and teachers, while both men and women are represented in the senior leadership of the school.
