This afternoon we have met our exchange partners again, met the mayor, been on the roof of the town hall to look at the City, had our photo taken for the local paper and now the partners have collected our students to go back to their families. Lessons at 7.45 tomorrow morning!

Vision and Values

The Hinchley Wood School ethos is encompassed in the following mission and vision statements to which all members of the school community have contributed.  We aim to inspire our students and raise standards by promoting a school ethos which is underpinned by five core values that support the development of our students as reflective learners.

Mission - Committed to sustainability - "Caring for ourselves, each other, the environment and the future”

Vision - To inspire all students to be …

  • Confident - Have self belief, communicate clearly in any situation
  • Considerate - Respect others' views and values
  • Determined - Work hard to achieve the highest possible standards in all aspects of school life 
  • Enthusiastic - Willing to learn from mistakes and maintain a positive outlook
  • Independent - Take responsibility for themselves and their learning

… in order to take on the challenges of an ever competitive and changing world. 

Hinchley Wood School is a committed promoter of British values and we actively seek to deliver a holistic approach to ensure the development of our students as local, European and International citizens.  As such, we aim to instil the fundamental British values of democracy, mutual respect and a genuine understanding of the perspectives and experiences of others. In every classroom and in social time, you will see students reflecting those values.

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our students underpins everything we do. We have a strong, taught curriculum coupled with a highly effective PSHE & Citizenship programme. Regular Enrichment and House Days in all year groups bring students together in a wide variety of workshops.

The rules of Law, individual liberty and the importance of making a positive contribution are reinforced and celebrated throughout our teaching.  We value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all students and their families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. Our Student Council is, by its very nature, multicultural, bringing to the table the views of all our students.

At Hinchley Wood School there are also regular opportunities for the development of values including:

  • Weekly Themed Year Group Assemblies which uphold our five core values;  
  • Regular guest speakers from the community;
  • Citizenship – Fortnightly lessons including Citizenship key topics;
  • Weekly PSHE sessions with Form Group tutors.
