Here at Scarisbrick Hall School, we are delighted to have been featured in this month’s Independent School Council article alongside Eton College, Withington Girls School, Manchester High School for Girls and The Manchester Grammar School.
2020 has been a challenging year for all sectors, public and private alike, and schools have found it particularly challenging to continue to deliver an incredible standard of education to their students within a remote setting. At Scarisbrick Hall School, we are so proud of our students and staff for overcoming these challenges and embracing an online learning environment.

The Global Classroom at Scarisbrick Hall School
Whilst many schools took to online learning for their students, at Scarisbrick Hall School we went one step further, partnering with the World Health Organisation and UNICEF to deliver a completely unique educational programme called The Global Classroom.
Our series of virtual events seek to unite children and experts from all over the globe to discuss important topics that relate to their education and wellbeing. So far we have seen an incredible two million students take part from over 150,000 schools in 193 countries!
The Global Classroom is open to students from anywhere in the world and provides them with a valuable learning experience that seeks to focus on a more holistic approach to their education, featuring important topics such as health and wellbeing.
