What The Good Schools Guide says..
A happy school. Children who are nervous about school but ambitious will be comfortable and accepted here. They are encouraged to believe that all subjects are equal – poetry as valuable as science – with no more praise given to a mathematician than to a pianist than to an athlete. The ethos is reflected in the 'Spirit of the School', a document that confidently expresses the culture it aspires to provide and one which is clearly in evidence during a visit to the school.
What the school says...
Hall School Wimbledon, founded in 1990, provides independent co-education for children aged four to sixteen. Located at two sites within the beautiful environs of Wimbledon Common, we offer a dynamic learning environment in which children of all abilities thrive.
We aim to provide an all-round education through a balanced curriculum, in which Art, Music, Sport and Drama play a valuable role alongside the core academic subjects. We believe that learning should be a pleasure and our teachers are encouraged to infuse their classes with joy, enthusiasm and active teaching.
Pupils benefit from high quality pastoral care at Hall School Wimbledon. It is our aim to ensure that children are happy, confident and secure throughout their lives at the school and, as such, we have created an environment in which every child is safe and valued and encouraged to fulfil his or her own potential both academically and socially. ...Read more

Since 1990, Mr Timothy J Hobbs MA (50s), educated at Eastbourne College and St Andrews, where he read medieval and modern history. Abandoned accountancy training in favour of a teaching post at Hill House International Junior School, which he left six years later, encouraged by parents, to set up his own school - the original Hall School Wimbledon Junior School. (In 1999 his brother Jonathan joined as principal of the junior school.)
Unmarried - except to the school, which TJH (as he likes to be known) hates us saying, but no better way to describe his passion and dedication to the place. An avuncular figure with quite old-fashioned (in the nicest possible way) sensibilities. He's a stickler for good manners, a strong advocate of books over computers and likes the children...
