Our son has just finished his first half term at HawleyHurst in year 6 and we’ve seen a transformation in both his confidence and academic progress. Picking the right school for your child is hard but do your own research, choose based on how the school’s ethos, aims teaching methods fit your requirements rather than anyone’s opinion if they don’t have a student there currently. For us we are so very glad we made the decision to come here and believe HawleyHurst has a bright future which our son is delighted to be part of.

HawleyHurst School is everything a school should be. Forward thinking, ambitious, nurturing. It cares deeply about every child and ensures they do absolutely their best, whether that be 10 A*s or anything else. Nobody is written off and everyone’s talents are celebrated whether that’s in the classroom, on the sports field, in the dance studio or in art or drama. If only every school were like this one.

A great family school, each child is valued for who they are, they are known by all staff throughout the school and they feel safe and happy and are confident in their learning. It’s transformed my girls and I’ve found from the teaching staff, to the admin team, to the senior management team, even the kitchen staff everyone truly wants what’s best for each child. They know them and will work hard to achieve that - thoroughly recommend

The merge has really made changes but they are definitely for the good! I am in KS4 and love the school so much that now I am on half-term I miss being able to attend such a brilliant school.

HawleyHurst is more a family than a school. A true ‘home from home’ school, where the teachers know your name and the children thrive. It’s our very own bubble of happiness, where you can literally watch your children go from strength-to-strength.

This school has been excellent. My daughter started as a shy student but is now a confident independent learner. The school treats the children as individuals and puts their best interest first.

As you know when a child leaves the family environment for the first time it is difficult for the child and parent. The approach that you have all taken has made this transition much smoother for us all. From day one I felt HawleyHurst was the right environment for my son and have never had any concerns.

He is already developing in areas within the term he has been attending and I am excited to watch him continue to grow.

I would recommend HawleyHurst to anyone without hesitation and would like to thank you all once again for everything you have done for him.

I just wanted to thank everyone for making my grandson’s first year at Hawleyhurst such a happy one. We think the school is wonderful and are quite sure will help him achieve his full potential-whatever that may be.

There is such a change in the school in terms of atmosphere, a real sense of kindness, generosity and togetherness amongst all. It is a privilege to be a part of the HawleyHurst journey and has opened our eyes to a new way of doing things, thinking outside of the box if you like.

The dedication, commitment and encouragement from the staff team is very clear with the children and so powerful in what can sometimes be a fragile journey through adolescence.
