Catholic Provision

The New Hall School ChapelNew Hall is the largest Catholic independent boarding and day school in the UK and provides the only Catholic ‘diamond model’ in the UK. New Hall also provides the only Catholic independent senior school provision in the Diocese of Brentwood, which covers all of Essex and five East London boroughs.

New Hall has a flourishing Chaplaincy, which organises a wide range of activities. The school organises sacramental preparation for its students, in particular Confirmation, and participates in an annual Pilgrimage to Lourdes every year.

New Hall is a member of the Catholic Independent Schools’ Conference (CISC), which was founded by a former Headmistress of New Hall, Sister Margaret Mary Horton CRSS. The Principal was formerly a member of the CISC committee. New Hall works closely with organisations within the Diocese of Brentwood. The Principal is a member of the Brentwood Diocese Secondary Heads’ Association (BDSHA) and the Headteacher of the Preparatory School is involved in the work of the Brentwood Religious Education Service (BRES).

New Hall opens its Chapel for public worship throughout the year for the Catholic Parish of Springfield; Mass is celebrated on Wednesdays and Sundays during term time. The school trains students and adults in various ministries, including musicians, alter servers and readers.
