Values and Vision

The school strives to be a supportive and inspiring environment, allowing each pupil to shine as an individual. It wants children to grow as independent learners; to feel safe and happy; to value friendship and other people's opinions; and to understand their place in the school as well as the part they can play in a globalised society.

Scarisbrick Hall School is the founder of The Global Classroom, a unique charity and education movement that unites children from around the world. Delivered in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and supported by UNICEF, The Global Classroom is the largest digital classroom in the world. An extraordinary programme of aspirational events from some of the most influential leaders in their fields have been delivered to children all over the world. Guest speakers have included: Denise Lewis, OBE – Olympic Athlete; David Henson, MBE – Parasport Athlete; Ben Lesser – Holocaust Survivor; Dr Maria Van Kerkhove – World Health Organisation Infectious Diseases Epidemiologist and many others.


“Pupils’ attitude to their work is exemplary. In almost every lesson, pupils are consistently on task, creating a scholarly working atmosphere with an academic focus. A lively sense of purpose and a sense of enjoyment are supported by the excellent relationships pupils enjoy with their teachers. [Pupils] are often independent and creative thinkers who take pride in their work, present it well and carry out their own research when given the opportunity.”
