Hungerhill School

Headteacher's Welcome

Helen Redford-Hernandez HeadteacherI am delighted to introduce you to our highly successful school and give you an insight into all that makes it outstanding. I have always felt that educating young people is a rare privilege, bringing with it huge responsibility to provide the best all-round education possible. Having taught at Hungerhill for many years I am immensely proud to be at the forefront of the everyday running of this ambitious school.

Our students are at the heart of everything we do to ensure they have the support and guidance they need to reach their full academic and personal potential. We have high expectations and strive for our students to be successful learners and gain the knowledge, skills and attributes to flourish in the world of work.

Our core values of respect, honesty, resilience, excellence and care are embedded at every level throughout the school.

The curriculum we offer is aspirational and designed to challenge, so that every child achieves their full potential. We build on learning experiences from primary school, working towards the mastery of skills, knowledge and understanding that prepares students for their examination courses. We aim to foster a love of learning, stimulate curiosity, develop creativity and enthuse and engage students to be lifelong learners. We offer an extensive range of enrichment experiences to students in order to develop self-esteem, confidence, self-expression, creativity and teamwork skills.

We are fortunate to have a caring, skilled and dedicated set of teachers, support staff and governors at Hungerhill, who believe that there is no limit to learning or ceiling on achievement as we seek the best outcomes for students. Pastoral care and inclusion are of exceptional quality, as we put the needs of individual students at the centre of everything we do.

We believe that student leadership is important in unlocking students’ potential. Leadership is central to everything we do at Hungerhill and our substantial leadership opportunities are a key driver in enabling students to develop important life and employability skills- we are developing tomorrow’s leaders today.

By choosing Hungerhill for your child, you are committing yourself to work with us for your child’s future in our caring and aspirational school.
