What The Good Schools Guide says

Head

Since September 2018, Dina Hamalis, previously academic director of Sarum Hall. Degree in education, specialising in English and history; spent five years at St Albans High Prep, moving to Highgate School (curriculum coordinator) then UCS pre-prep (SENCo, G&T and EAL coordinator) before joining Sarum Hall in 2011. She is an ISI inspector.

Entrance

Main entry at 4+. About 200 assessed (ie observed performing a range of ‘nursery tasks’) for 48 places (two classes of 24) in January before entry, then whittled down in a second round. ‘We’re looking for bright girls, who are interested, engaged and willing to have a go.'
