An independent school for boys and girls aged 3 to 11 years we offer a different approach to preparatory education.

Our dedicated subject specialist teachers work together to ensure every child reaches their potential. Inspiring them to learn in a supportive, caring, homely environment. Everything we do at Hunter Hall School has one purpose – to enable children to discover and embrace the joy of learning.

A small school that achieves big results. We’ve some of the smallest class sizes in Cumbria so our children receive the time, attention and guidance they need to flourish. Our 11 year olds consistently achieve outstanding examination results year- on-year and, because we’re not tied, our leavers go on to wide range of high quality secondary schools across the county and beyond.

Hunter Hall School provides a unique learning environment. Bringing together modern teaching techniques in a tranquil rural setting we are continually investing in our facilities in order to stimulate young minds. And, because the school is situated next to a working farm and only a short distance from Lake District National Park, our children have regular access to a wide variety of outdoor learning and activities.
