World Class Schools
Hungerhill was proud to have received the World Class Schools Quality Mark (WCSQM) in December 2018. In order to be selected to apply a school has to be rated as Outstanding by OFSTED and have exceptionally high examination results. The award’s uniqueness lies in the fact that the students are assessed with regard to whether they are World Class or not, rather than the school itself. The premise is, that if the school is truly World Class, then its students should be able to demonstrate this in whatever context they find themselves.
We are currently working towards reaccreditation of the WCSQM at Hungerhill: work for this began in September 2021 with Mrs Hancock and our new student leaders. Reaccreditation involves our student leaders demonstrating that they are ‘world class’ by submitting evidence towards six key areas on the World Class Schools App (Leaders, Learners, Commitment, Community, Workplace and Knowledge & Understanding). There will be opportunities for more students to become involved in this initiative over the year by being nominated by one or more of their teachers as ‘World Class Student of the Month’ for contributing to strands within one of the six key areas. Six student leaders who have completed all key areas on the App will attend a WCS celebration event later in the year where we will gain official re-accreditation. We are confident that our students will do a fantastic job, like those who originally helped us gain accreditation of this prestigious award!

We were incredibly impressed with the high standard of work produced by the students on the day - you can absolutely see why they were nominated by their school as being World Class .” Miranda Perry, Director of WCSQM.
