Our principal aim is to teach a child in the
way that they can learn best. Each is unique, and a true education
must take into account their wider experiences, personal motivation
and innate learning styles.
It is clear to us that the children thrive
when their learning experiences are fuelled by a spirit of adventure,
both within and far beyond the curriculum. It is this contagious
spirit and celebration of life, alongside the child’s evolving
knowledge and growing wisdom, that, we believe, will empower
the individual child to make a confident and positive impact
upon their own life, as well as the lives of those within the
wider community, both now and in the future. Consequently our teaching is forward thinking and innovative in range and depth.
Through a very close working relationship between primary specialists and subject specialists the Junior Department at All Hallows follows the International Primary Curriculum. The principle of the IPC is to focus on a combination of academic, personal, and internationally themed learning for children combined with innovative, exciting and engaging ways to learn. This global consciousness is fundamental to Catholic Education. The IPC approach to learning promotes a clear progression in skill development with an emphasis on adaptability, resilience, thoughtfulness, co-operation and respect which help children to become able and inspired learners.
The IPC is helping to engage and inspire children of all abilities as a result of stimulating, child-centered, thematic, cross-curricular units of work which encourage collaborative learning and address learning styles. Read more about the IPC in action.
Our proudest achievement is
always to help individuals to discover their own passions and interests
that add a new dimension to their lives.
Naturally high levels of academic performance are vitally important. We’re very proud of a record that
consistently sees some 30% of our leavers win a scholarship or
exhibition, while 100% regularly pass Common Entrance to the
senior school of their choice.

The All Hallows
Learning Support Centre (LSC) has an excellent reputation for
the extent of its services and effectiveness in helping children
who need specialised academic support. It’s also a useful resource
for occasional use by any child needing a short-term ‘push’ in
developing his or her skills, whether in terms or support or extension. This is an aspect of our individualised provision.
With a focus on language, literacy
and numeracy work, it’s a vital part of the school that provides
additional support in one-to-one sessions and small groups as
well as in class.
