Hall Cross is a mixed 11-18 secondary school. The school has specialist status for science and mathematics.

Hall Cross Sixth Form is one of the largest in the country and draws on a tradition of academic excellence dating back to 1350.

Our mix of traditional academic values, caring pastoral support and a forward-looking response to the modern world combine to provide an educational experience that helps our students to progress towards fulfilled and successful lives.

Relationships forged in school, shared experiences and academic achievements all help to mould the future and at Hall Cross we aim to work towards the best possible future for all our students. .

We welcome young people who want to make the most of their opportunities and share in our proud reputation.
