Preparatory School for Girls

Believe in Yourself

Welcome from the Headmistress

Welcome to the Halstead website!

Halstead is a happy and successful school for girls aged two to eleven with a warm family atmosphere providing a high quality education.

 Our well-qualified and dedicated staff see each pupil as an individual; through a nurturing approach in small classes and a Christian ethos, we ensure that her educational, emotional and developmental needs are well met. In their own learning environment, girls can be themselves and develop their individual abilities, interests and talents without any stereotypical influence – Halstead girls grow up knowing they can aspire to be anything they want to be!

 A wide range of opportunities helps Halstead girls to foster their talents and fulfil their potential. They form life-long friendships and many happy memories of their Prep school days along the way. At age 11 they leave us equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to enjoy and get the best from their senior education and beyond.

 I invite you to visit us to feel first-hand the happy and enthusiastic buzz, strong sense of purpose and cheerful, family atmosphere that makes Halstead such a special place to be. I guarantee you a warm Halstead welcome and look forward to showing you round and discussing your daughter’s education with you.
