A leading private school in the north of England


Scarisbrick Hall School is an award-winning mixed independent school based near Ormskirk, Lancashire. Providing personalised learning from nursery to age 18, we are recognised as the top Sixth Form in the North of England and among the top 10 nationally for progress and value added. We are also one of the select few Grade 1 independent schools rated 100% excellent by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). All of which combined makes us one of the most accomplished and highly-acclaimed private schools in Lancashire and the country as a whole.

Our RIVER learning philosophy centres around the values of Resilience, Independence, Values, Exploration and Reflection to provide young people with all the tools they need to enjoy a happy and successful future. We are passionate about providing first-class learning opportunities that enable all our pupils to reach their full potential. As a progressive private school, we offer a bespoke academic curriculum, bolstered by exemplary pastoral care and a co-curricular programme encompassing sport, the performing arts and exciting educational excursions. 

Headmaster's Welcome

A Passion for Learning

“As Headmaster, I am passionate about each individual at our independent school and about the teaching and learning that supports their development. At Scarisbrick Hall School, our educational philosophy is focused on the traits that we believe will ensure all of our young people have a happy and successful future. I want to ensure every pupil is inspired by all the opportunities they are offered within our learning environment, both in curricular and co-curricular aspects."

Mr J Shaw (Headmaster)

Developing Strong Values

The first thing that pupils and parents notice when entering Scarisbrick Hall School is the kindness and respect shown by our staff and pupils. We pride ourselves on encouraging pupils to be confident in themselves and to pursue their individual talents. Very few independent schools in Lancashire can offer the opportunities we do.  


​The pupils and staff at our award-winning private school are encouraged to be reflective and to value and respect our local and global community. This makes Scarisbrick Hall School a uniquely nurturing and progressive independent school environment in which to learn and develop, whilst forging lifelong friendships and curiosity.
