Tuesday 19 October 1993
New Hall School
The celebrations of the 350th Year of Foundation of New Hall School, Chelmsford, were concluded on Friday 8 October, when a service of thanksgiving took place in Chelmsford Cathedral in the presence of the Anglican Bishop of Chelmsford, the Right Rev John Waine, and the Roman Catholic Bishop of Brentwood, the Right Rev Thomas McMahon. Sister Mary Gabriel, the Prioress, gave the Address. The New Hall Liturgical Choir conducted by Andrew Fardell led the singing, and readings and prayers were said by representatives of the school and local communities. The Mayor and Mayoress of Chelmsford and the High Sheriff of Essex were among guests who returned to New Hall for lunch after the service.
Following the celebrations, New Hall announces the re-opening of a Preparatory School in September 1994. The Preparatory School will take both boys and girls from the ages of 5 to 11. Entry will, initially, be at all ages. The pupils will be in a separate building set apart from the Senior School, although older pupils will have access to specialist facilities including science laboratories, drama studios, and art rooms, and to some specialist staff. There will be provision for older girls to board in a separate Junior House. Further details from the Registrar, 0245 467588.
