A message from Mrs Redford-Hernandez
It is with great pleasure that I start my headship at Hungerhill School knowing that it has just enjoyed another bumper crop of GCSE results. Everyone associated with the school is justly proud of what has been achieved over recent years and I feel immensely privileged to be leading this outstanding school through its next phase of development. The governors, staff and parents are not, however, complacent and share a great ambition for the future of the school and all its students. High expectations together with an unrelenting focus on student achievement and well-being have been at the core of its effectiveness and will remain a key priority as the school ventures into a new phase of development.
The success of the school owes much to the partnerships that have developed over the years between students, parents/carers and staff. I am keen for this to continue as I believe that schools can only ever be really successful if there is close co-operation between all stakeholders.
My expectations of all the students at Hungerhill School are high and I am keen to ensure that the excellent standards of behaviour and uniform are maintained. As an outstanding school you will recognise the quality learning experience that our young people experience every day, but there is still much more to do. Over the next few months, I will be keen to explore and collaborate with other learning establishments to enhance the educational provision for all our students.
Once again we are very proud of our Year 11 students and their academic achievements. 98% of our students gained 5 GCSE grades at A*- C, whilst 73% attained 5 A*- C including English and maths.
The number of students making expected or better progress in our core subjects is well above national expectations and we celebrate this year with an increasing number of exceptional performances from students who achieved the highest possible grades with 47% of them securing 3A*- A grades. As an inclusive school we are justly proud of the fact that 98% of our students gained 5 GCSE grades at C or above.
This is a massive tribute to the staff and parents/carers who have worked incredibly hard with students to achieve these results.
I look forward to meeting and working with you all.
