Independent day school
for girls 3 - 18 and boys 3 - 11
with boarding for girls from 9


Established in 1938, Hethersett Old Hall School is an independent day school for boys aged 3-11 and girls aged 3-18 with flexi, weekly and full boarding available to girls  9-18.

We are a close-knit community of approximately 180 pupils with small class sizes of on average 10 pupils. We have three departments, as outlined below, and children also belong to one of three Houses – Fry, Ryder and Austen – which further strengthen bonds across the year groups:

We seek to maximise the potential of each individual, developing talents and skills in a caring and successful Christian community. Our aim is to enable pupils to:

  • Achieve the highest standards of which they are capable.
  • Grow in self-confidence and self-belief.
  • Gain knowledge and understanding of their own and others’ cultures.
  • Develop strong moral and spiritual values that will equip them for their role as citizens in a rapidly-changing society.

Hethersett Old Hall School is a member of the Independent Schools Council (ISC), Girls’ Schools Association (GSA) and the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) and is a registered charitable trust (number 311273). We were delighted to receive the ‘Best Day School 2011’ award at the Archant Good Schools Show in London.
