"This is a good residential provisions. The new Headteacher has improved the monitoring of the residential provision". Ofsted June 2019

At Hailey Hall we think our boarding provision is second to none. Our dedicated care team ensure the happiness, welfare and safety of all our boys. We have numerous activities within school in the evenings ranging from sports such as football and swimming to ten pin bowling, cinema trips, pool club, cycling club, table tennis and ICT activities to name just a few.

Our boarders enjoy a stimulating and rewarding environment that reflects the aims of the school. We are happy to receive boarders on a short term trial basis before becoming a full time boarder. We can also accommodate day boys who wish to have extended days.

Feedback from OFSTED - JUNE 2019

"Older children in the residential provision mentor the younger children. This creates a family environment in which any disagreements are resolved openly and honestly."

"The staff have a positive impact on the children’s lives. The staff forge excellent relationships with parents and carers"

"The children’s views and opinions are gained through daily meetings after school. This inclusive approach means that children are involved in making choices about their care"

"Parents are positive about the residential provision. They see the value that it provides and can identify the progress that their children make. A parent said, ‘Staff are fantastic. They have really helped my child in more ways than I can explain.’ "

"The staff understand safeguarding procedures and their responsibility to safeguard children. The head of care and the deputy are both part of the designated safeguarding team at the school. "

"The management team has a thorough understanding of children’s plans and progress. Children’s case files are clear, concise and up to date. This ensures consistency of care."
