About Maidwell Hall

Maidwell Hall is a boarding and day school for boys and girls age 7-13 years. The school specialises in full-boarding preparing pupils for major public school: Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Stowe, Oundle, Uppingham and Winchester and many more. Maidwell Hall has a strong academic reputation and there have been no failures at 13+ Common Entrance for 17 years. Maidwell Hall has a cosy and homely atmosphere with all boarders under one roof.

Being a small school allows us to have a highly personal approach, we offer a wide range of extra curricular activities in the evenings and at the weekends as well as an abundance of trips. The grounds are extensive including a lake and woodland, 9 tennis courts, a swimming pool and an astro-turf pitch. We have an enviable sporting reputation and games are played every afternoon. Our major sports are rugby, football, hockey and cricket for the boys and hockey, netball and rounders for the girls. We also have teams for tennis, squash, cross country, athletics, swimming and shooting. We run international sports tours for boys and girls senior teams.

We have a major play once a year and most pupils play a musical instrument or sing in the choir and we hold two big whole school concerts per year. The school is adorned with artwork and design projects produced by the pupils and reflects the high standards of art.
