A greeting from our Principal
It is our privilege to educate students creating successful futures for young people within our care. A quality education changes lives and provides the foundations and stepping stones to the careers and experiences that shape us as members of our local and global community. We are committed to ensuring education is viewed as part of a life long journey engaging in experiences that help us develop understanding of ourselves and the world we live in, recognising the contribution we and young people can make. Our intent is to develop our students both academically and holistically so that they understand who they are, and how they operate in the world.
At Hartshill, we believe this is about being passionate and inspiring our students to be confident, ambitious and successful individuals. We place knowledge, learning and retention at the heart of teaching and are relentless in our pursuit of excellence in all that we do. Within our community, students and staff are nurtured, valued, known and supported to be successful citizens.
Hartshill School has a highly qualified and motivated staff who are passionate about ensuring all students feel safe, happy and reach their potential. We offer a wide curriculum to meet the needs of all students as well as having an established and effective SEN department who support students with additional needs.
Our students are kind and care for each other. Fairness, tolerance and respect is the fabric of our ethos and students are polite and respectful. These positive relationships promote effective learning conditions supported by creative and engaging teaching that stretch all abilities.
As for our popularity, our student numbers have risen significantly over the last 3 years with first choice responses rapidly rising. Consequently, the school is now almost 'full' and over-subscribed in a number of year groups. We feel very privileged that so many parents put their trust in Hartshill and its staff to deliver the high quality education that we expect for our own children and prove with our exam results that we do everything we can to deliver on our promises.
Our motto 'No Goal is Beyond Us' infects all who work and learn here, students who are focused and engaged in learning and teachers and support staff who deliver creative and inspiring lessons. We aim to make a positive significant difference to the lives of every individual within our care in a positive, proactive, protective learning environment.
Our website is full of information about our school and we hope you enjoy finding out more about us. We very much look forward to meeting you and providing your child with the high quality education that brings them the success they deserve.
Our recent Ofsted Report in May 2017 reported “senior leaders are clear about what the areas for improvement are. They have taken prompt action to address shortcomings”, and we anticipate a significant improvement in outcomes.
