Headmaster's Welcome

Witham Hall is a happy and thriving boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 4 to 13 years. We are committed to an education both in and beyond the classroom, thereby enabling the academic, artistic and physical potential of each child to flourish. Coupled with their purpose and determination to succeed, this broad programme enables our children to acquire a strong sense of achievement, a quiet confidence and an awareness of both themselves and each other.

From their earliest years in our secure and caring environment, at the heart of which is a beautiful Queen Anne country house, children are encouraged to explore life and enjoy learning. Imagination and creativity flourish, and the emphasis on pastoral care and personal growth ensures individual skills and strengths can be identified at an early age.

Boarding at Witham is a happy and highly rewarding experience, made popular by the weekly and flexi-boarding options that are available. Most pupils from the age of 8 enjoy the special ‘home from home’ atmosphere that boarding offers, thereby further enriching their time with us.

The sense of pride that our children, their teachers and our support staff have in the school makes Witham a special place. Please do come and visit; I am confident you will feel inspired by what you see.
