Specialist Schools

All Hallows holds two Specialisms under the Specialist Schools Programme ; Business Enterprise and Sport.

The Specialist Schools programme was established to help schools to establish distinctive identities through their chosen specialisms and to achieve targets to raise standards. Whilst specialist schools have a particular focus on their chosen subject area they must also meet the National Curriculum requirements and deliver a broad and balanced education to all pupils.

Schools can apply to be designated as a specialist school in one of ten specialist areas: arts, business & enterprise, engineering, humanities, language, mathematics & computing, music, science, sports and technology and can; as we have at All Hallows; combine any two specialisms. 

These specialisms promote school improvement by providing opportunities to work to our strengths, enabling us to deliver effective teaching and learning in our areas of expertise, as well as across the curriculum, and to drive innovation. 

Specialist schools work with named partner schools for the benefit of pupils beyond their own school boundaries and with other groups of people in the wider community. This ensures that the programme has an impact by helping to create a diverse network of secondary provision through the sharing of good practice and expertise. 

The Director of Specialism is Mr Tomlinson.
