There is an unsurpassed range of opportunities on offer … “a school in a million” say parents. “A happy, buzzing ethos pervades The Hawthorns” said the I.S.I. inspectors.
In a wonderfully diverse environment and a friendly, family atmosphere, girls and boys from two years old are nurtured under the motto of ‘Love God, love thy neighbour’. They develop a deep sense of purpose, a love for learning and a care for others. A consistently high quality of teaching and learning leads pupils of all abilities towards their potential. We pride ourselves too on our success in integrating later entries into Years 3 to 8. This year a record 38 Scholarships and Awards were gained by our 11 to 13+ leavers.
Dynamic and energetic leadership together with an open partnership with parents makes The Hawthorns a vibrant and exciting community. Set in 35 beautiful acres, with fabulous facilities, opportunities abound (e.g. plays, concerts, fixtures, visits, residential trips and an extensive co-curricular programme). Students reach County and National levels at Sport, whilst less competitive pupils enjoy outdoor education (e.g. high wires), adventure sports and Conservation. Schools of Swimming and Dance (open to the local community) and bursting programmes of Music and Drama further extend the choices! Life and study skills such as time management, teamwork, service and public speaking and are also taught and caught.
Our latest inspection report identified pupils who were proud of their School, with exemplary attitudes and behaviour, achieving high standards and benefiting from an outstanding educational experience. This was underpinned by an exceptional quality of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We also encourage children to simply take the time to enjoy childhood. An active Parent and Toddler group and comprehensive extended day and holiday activities are available.
Parental thanks confirm our aims: “we have watched her blossom under the pastoral guidance and dedication of the staff. From the profound grounding, she has matured into a happy successful young teenager, confidently tackling challenges”; “our son has grown in maturity and changed beyond recognition”; “it has been a wonderful journey and experience for the whole family and a happy association with the School”.
