Maidwell Hall is a co-educational boarding and day school, educating pupils from Reception through to Year 8. Situated in a beautiful part of Northamptonshire, pupils at Maidwell Hall are encouraged by a dedicated team of staff to make the most of the 40+ acres of parkland, woodlands, lake and sports fields. At the heart of the school estate is a 17th century manor house, and all these factors combine to provide the perfect place for young children to learn and grow throughout their formative years.

With a Pre-Prep which opened in 2020, Maidwell Hall is growing and currently educates 135 pupils: around 50% of pupils fortnightly or flexibly board. In September 2022, Maidwell Hall joined the Uppingham Group of Schools (UGS), and the recent merger starts the School’s next chapter, which will arguably be its most exciting and ambitious.
