Lady Hawkins’ School

I am honoured to take up the position as 31st Headteacher at Lady Hawkins’ School. Nestled within beautiful surroundings in the market town of Kington, our school stands as a proud guardian of its rich heritage and a vital contributor to the local community.

Although we are a small school by modern standards, Lady Hawkins is always bustling with activities and opportunities. We take immense pride in the role our students play in shaping our close-knit school community.

Beyond delivering a broad and balanced curriculum, we firmly believe that education extends far beyond the boundaries of exam results. At Lady Hawkins’ we boast a well-established extracurricular program, including memorable residential excursions to destinations such as Pembrokeshire, France, Iceland, and Austria, in addition to numerous other enrichment trips and sporting opportunities.

At the heart of our ethos lies our unwavering commitment to pastoral care. Being a small school uniquely positions us to establish genuine connections with each and every student, fostering a supportive and nurturing environment.

We extend an open invitation to all visitors, and I would be delighted to personally guide you around our lovely school, allowing you to witness our students and teachers in action. Should you wish to look around Lady Hawkins, please do not hesitate to contact our school office, and we will be more than happy to arrange a visit.

Mr Allen Brace – Headteacher
