Team one arrived at Kinabatagan yesterday for their KOPEL project and have spent today collecting and planting seeds to help grow more trees in areas of the jungle affected by deforestation. It's been a hot but productive day! 🌲🌿 https://t.co/8gRz1aci3N

Welcome

Welcome to the Hinchley Wood School website; I hope you find it useful and informative and that it gives you some sense of the school’s vitality, values and of the many achievements of our students.

Underlying all that we do is our vision, what we regard as our purpose which is “Inspiring Learners”.  We are committed to securing the very best for all our students and in doing so, teaching them the five values that lie at the heart of everything we do; enthusiasm and a determination to succeed even when the going gets tough; confidence to ask for help when students need it and to work independently when they don’t; consideration and respect for each and every member of our school and local community. 

We offer a rich, varied and stimulating curriculum as well as high quality purpose built accommodation including a music suite with state-of-the-art recording studio and extensive practice rooms, a sports hall with purpose built gym and dance studio, five ICT suites and astroturf sports pitches.

As a school we strive constantly to improve on our previous best and particular importance is placed on recognising and rewarding individual achievement.  Students are actively encouraged to participate in a wide range of artistic and sporting activities with many gaining recognition at local and national level for their achievements.

Our core business is teaching and learning and we have a relentless focus on teaching lessons of the highest quality - lessons which stimulate and inspire young minds.  For our students this is not just a vision but a reality: The last school Ofsted Inspection said “Hinchley Wood is an outstanding school………Students work exceptionally well together in this harmonious and cohesive community and achieve excellent outcomes.”

If this is the sort of school you wish your child to be part of I do hope you will apply for them to come and join us.
