Lady Hawkins’ School
It is a real privilege to be the 30th Headteacher of Lady Hawkins’ School and to be able to play a part in its continuing success.
We are delighted to be able to announce that Lady Hawkins’ School has been rated as ‘GOOD’ by Ofsted, showing significant improvements since the last two inspections. Ofsted noted that “progress is accelerating” and is “now strong across the school”
As a school, we are a centre of learning at the heart of our community, enjoying an excellent local reputation, the support of parents and the community, and talented and dedicated staff. Most important of all, we benefit from an able and receptive student body that never fails to impress and inspire.
Whilst we enjoy a long history, a school cannot rest on its laurels and we are constantly seeking ways to improve all aspects of our provision. As a stand-alone academy we set our own priorities – and we choose to focus our efforts upon improving the quality of teaching and learning, and raising student attainment across the curriculum.
We are proud of our traditions and our heritage dating back nearly 400 years, but also acutely aware of our responsibility to nurture, inspire and prepare our students to take their places as leaders and innovators in a rapidly changing world. We strive to ensure that every student reaches their full potential and enjoys learning. At the same time, we appreciate the importance of giving our students the broadest possible range of opportunities outside the classroom and encouraging them to develop their sporting, artistic and creative talents. Throughout all aspects of our work are embedded our core values of hard work, discipline, smart appearance and respect. We encourage our students to contribute positively to their own community and beyond.
We strive to ensure that every student reaches their full potential and enjoys learning.
I hope that the website’s content will help you to become familiar with the school – a safe, caring community where our students flourish, enjoy learning and succeed. Whatever your reason for visiting our website, I hope that you will find easily the information you require. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you require any further information.
