Our History

Halliford School started life as Shepperton Grammar School and was founded in 1921 by Mr Dobree Topliss at its original site on Laleham Road in Shepperton. The School moved to its current site in 1929, and in 1937 was acquired by Mr and Mrs Geoffrey Fyson, who changed the name to Shepperton School. In 1946 the School once again changed hands, and Mr Maxwell Morrison changed the name to Halliford House School. The House part was later dropped, and the School became known as Halliford School. In 1956 the Board of Governors organised a buy-out of the School, ending the procession of private ownership and forging Halliford school as it is today. The original school shield dates to at least 1925 and remained the same until the current school coat of arms was introduced in June 1986.

Welcome from the Head

Halliford is a warm-hearted School founded on strong family values where we are proud to know and be respectful of every student as an individual. Our theme ‘Come as you are. Go as all you can be’ perfectly encapsulates our mission to encourage and support Hallifordians to flourish and become the best version of themselves that they can possibly be. Our boys join us for their seven-year journey from 11 to 18, and we warmly welcome girls to join our co-educational Sixth Form, which provides our senior students with the opportunities to excel in a more independent environment. Rated as ‘Excellent in all areas’ by ISI in December 2022, Halliford is an incredible community to belong to and spend part of their only childhood. We aim for excellence by being academically ambitious but at the same time academically sensitive. We inspire Hallifordians within a community that is founded on high-quality teaching and learning, outstanding pastoral care and first-class sporting, cultural and extra-curricular opportunities.

Co-curricular Activities

We are delighted to be able to offer a wide variety of learning experiences outside of the classroom to support and enhance the learning that goes on inside the classroom. We believe these are an invaluable part of our students’ education and strongly encourage students to participate. Our co-curricular programme is rich and varied and include:

Art Club, Backgammon, Barbershop, Build A Guitar Club, Chess Club, Climbing Club, Cooking Club, Photography Club, Jazz Band, Mindful Movement & Relaxation, Podcast Club, Rock Band, Science Club, Warhammer Alliance Club, Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh and many more.

School Trips

We run many trips for students such as theatre trips, visits to academic conferences and museums and Geography field trips. We have a long running annual exchange programme for students studying German, French and Spanish, and our annual ski trip always proves extremely popular. The Sports Department organises a big overseas tour every three years, and Activities Week at the end of the Summer Term provides an ideal opportunity to engage in a variety of activities.
