LADY HAWKINS’ SCHOOL
Our Vision, Ethos & Values
Lady Hawkins’ School is a school with a long, proud history. We are very well equipped to prepare young people for life in the twenty-
Our size makes it possible for the whole staff to get to know students as individuals and make their personal happiness, care and development a key priority. Our warm, friendly environment provides students of all backgrounds and abilities with the opportunity to work to their full potential.
We are proud of our examination results, which show good added value, but we believe that education is about more than examination results so we prize development of the whole individual.

As part of our monitoring systems we have a ‘behaviour for learning’ (BfL) system where staff record student BfL scores for each lesson. Students are scored as either 1 – Outstanding, 2 – Good, 3 – Needs Improvement or 4 – Cause for Concern.
Any student gaining three or more grade 4’s or scoring an average of 2.5 or above over five school days is automatically reviewed by senior staff and may be given an after school detention or spend time in isolation.
As a school, we will continually monitor your child’s behaviour and if it becomes apparent that they are behaving in a way that is detrimental to their own or others’ learning, then we may invite you into school to discuss the situation further.
Some traditional catchment areas have changed.
If you would like your child to attend Lady Hawkins’ but don’t think Herefordshire Council will provide transport please contact the school on 01544 230 441 and we may be able to provide you with a free school bus pass.
