Welcome to Hall School Wimbledon, the inclusive, independent co-educational school for pupils aged 4 to 16.
We believe that anything is possible and that every pupil must engage fully in his or her own learning. Our nurturing pastoral care and broad curriculum supports your child on this journey.
Of course, results are important. In 2019, 70% of GCSE examinations at Hall School Wimbledon were awarded the top grades 9 to 6 /A* to B. 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
One of the special features of our school is the unique HSW Homework System, which is introduced in the Junior School. 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 only 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 but not arrogant, equipped with tools to embrace the challenges that lie ahead.

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.
