New Hall is a selective school and admissions are designed to ensure the school remains a Catholic faith school, but students of any and no faith are also accepted. The school aims to provide every child with the very best start, in line with the school motto - The Best Start In Life. The school is housed within a stunning historic building - a former residence of King Henry VIII - with more recent additions, including a state-of-the-art nursery. Facilities are impressive, with a wide variety of academic and specialist amenities and a plethora of sporting and recreational facilities that can be enjoyed by the whole school.
New Hall School, founded in 1642, is a co-educational Catholic day and boarding school for pupils aged three to 18, set within a sprawling 85-acre campus estate on the outskirts of Chelmsford. Conveniently located just off the A12, the school is accessible by car and also runs its own bus transportation service operating from a number of pick-up points across the county of Essex and beyond.
