On Thursday 28 June, New Hall School was honoured to welcome Sarah, Duchess of York, to present prizes at their Senior Prize Giving for students in Years 10-13. The Duchess addressed the attending parents, staff and students as Guest of Honour, reflecting on the importance of charity work and service to others, as well as speaking about her life-long friendship with a former New Hall student, Lady Tang, whom the school were delighted to welcome back for the evening. The Prize Giving marked a wonderful end to the year and included excellent musical performances from talented students. There was also a moving Commissioning of the Year 13 leavers, as the school community thanked them for their contribution to New Hall and marked this next step on their journey with prayers, gifts and good wishes.
Alongside a successful academic programme, New Hall School provides excellent facilities and training for budding sports stars and fantastic music and performing arts provision. The Catholic boarding and day school for students aged 3-18 has a distinctive ‘diamond model’ structure and a strong ethos of pastoral care which supports students in their endeavours, allowing them to achieve success in a wide variety of fields.
