Sarum Hall School

The school’s mission is to identify and develop the natural talents and potential of each individual pupil and to prepare them all for a full, happy, healthy, active and productive life.

The school seeks to achieve this within the context of the culture, ethics and values of the Christian faith emphasising those strong moral and spiritual tenets shared with other faiths.

We aim:

  • To ensure the welfare and safety of our pupils
  • To provide our pupils with knowledge and experience appropriate to their age
  • To teach skills of literacy and numeracy to the highest possible standard
  • To teach those cultural skills which enable pupils to develop knowledge and understanding of the world, its peoples and cultures, both past and present
  • To develop and enhance pupils’ knowledge of the environment and thereby foster an awareness of the need to conserve and care for its resources
  • To develop the desire and ability to contribute to the community at large, respecting and appreciating others for their differences and beliefs, with particular reference to British values
  • To develop confidence in themselves to lead healthy, active and independent lives.
  • To gain transferrable skills across a broad and relevant curriculum in order to develop independent thought and the ability to communicate effectively
  • To develop an appreciation of art, drama, music and sport by providing opportunities for participation
  • To provide opportunities for engaging in the democratic process and participating in community life

How is this achieved?

  • By having policies and procedures that produce a happy and safe environment, giving a sense of security with consistent expectations within an organised structure
  • By giving the pupils high yet realistic targets, within an ethos of individual excellence
  • By creating a caring atmosphere where pupils are confident that their individual needs will be respected and considered
  • By providing a broad and stimulating curriculum delivered by effective teaching

How we know whether this has been achieved:

  • Through pupil outcomes
  • Through pupil behaviour and attitudes
  • Through pupil demonstrating initiative, integrity and respect appropriate to their age
  • Through regular assessment, monitoring and analysis of pupil achievement and personal development
  • Through regular internal assessment and appraisal of staff

Bursaries & Scholarships

Sarum Hall School is a registered charity. The school relies on the fees from parents to meet the whole of its operating costs as it does not have the benefit of an endowment fund or any other form of income.

The School offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries awarded according to need.

Bursaries (including Emergency Fee Assistance), on a sliding scale, are awarded to pupils who we believe will gain most from a Sarum Hall education, and who will contribute fully to the life of the school. Parents interested in applying for means-tested financial assistance are recommended to download and read the School’s Bursary Policy.

The provision of all financial assistance is at the sole discretion of the School and is subject to the means-testing rigour expected of independent schools by the Charity Commission. Both parents/guardians will be required to provide proof of their income and assets. The level of support varies according to a range of circumstances including assessed parental need and also to the level of funding available.

Entry to Nursery
Please note that financial assistance is only available for entry to Nursery in very exceptional circumstances, and the deadline for any such applications will be 31st March for September entry in the following year.

Entry to Reception – Year 6
If you wish to apply for bursary funding for entry into Reception – Year 6, the Bursary Application Form (available from the Bursar) should be fully completed and submitted directly to the Bursar together with all requested and applicable supplementary documentation. This is required in advance of your appointment with the Headmistress for entry the following September. At the same time a Registration Form should be completed on the website and associated fee should be submitted, if one has not already been submitted.

Please note that we cannot consider Bursary applications for children for whom Registration Forms for a place at the school have not been received. You should also check with the Admissions Secretary whether there are places available in your child’s proposed year group prior to submitting a Registration Form.

Note that the registration fee will be refunded for unsuccessful bursary applicants who do not join the School.

Bursary applications will be considered on the basis of the information provided and the analysis of this will include a home visit from the school’s appointed representatives. Following receipt of their report, recommendations will be made to the Governing Body and decisions will be communicated by letter from the Bursar at the same time that academic places are awarded.

Once a bursary award has been made, it will be subject to an annual review.
