History visit: landed safely at Heathrow, fifteen minutes ahead of schedule. Will ask students to contact you when we board the coach back to school. It's been a wonderful visit, we hope that the students have come away with a much deeper understanding of Berlin past and present.

Vision and Values

We regard the five Hinchley Wood School values of confidence, consideration, determination, enthusiasm and independence as a golden thread that runs through our work to inspire learners. Over the past 18 months, we have done a great deal to help all our students to develop our values - here’s a brief summary:

  • We have actively promoted the importance of our five values via school assemblies and regular tutor group email shots under the branding ‘HWS builds Character’.  We believe our House system helps our students to feel part of our school community, launching ‘Belonging at HWS’ to link students to our four Houses – Luther King, Frank, Nightingale and Hawking.
  • Students in all year groups have enjoyed a range of House activities that has helped them develop a sense of belonging and demonstrate our values in school. Here are just some (but not all!) of the events we ran:
    • Spelling Bee competition
    • Hinchley Wood School Christmas card design competition, with Elin from Year 9 seeing her design produced and sent out across the local community during the festive season.
    • Inter-House sports competitions, including netball, football and dodgeball.
    • The return of the ever-popular annual Hinchley Wood Bake Off
    • House Gym and Dance competition, performed by students in Years 7 – 11 to a packed hall
    • Whole school Christmas Quiz
    • House Sports Day
    • House chess competition
    • The ‘Grenfell to Gulu’ walk on the last day of the school year. A big congratulations to all students in Years 8 – 11 and the Hinchley Wood staff who between them walked an incredible combined 8,526 km in just over two hours in our bid to walk from Grenfell Tower to Gulu, Uganda! We raised an incredible £2,700 for our partner schools in Gulu, whilst also coming together as a whole-school community to show our support for the victims of the Grenfell fire tragedy.
  • We also marked a number of important events during the year, including Move for Movember, Race for Life, the sad passing of one of our House figureheads, Stephen Hawking and the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King.
  • A big congratulations to all our Year 7 students who successfully completed their Values and Participation Diplomas to evidence how they have started to demonstrate our five school values during the first year of their journey with us at Hinchley Wood School. There were eight aspects to the diploma to complete: confidence, consideration, determination, enthusiasm, independence, extra-curricular activities (inside and outside of school), house activities and additional credit (positive attitude to learning, attendance etc.) During weekly tutor sessions Year 7 students worked to buil up a range of evidence to show how they met, or were working towards, each of the eight criteria. During the Summer Term, each student took part in an interview with a member of staff or school governor to talk about the aspects of their evidence they were most proud of and how they found the experience. Finally, they were rewarded with a ‘graduation’ assembly, prizes and their Diploma Certificate from the Headteacher, Mr Bartlett. It’s fair to say we were completely blown away by some of the amazing things our students do!
  • This year, our Headteacher Awards were also linked to our values and Houses to help celebrate the fantastic achievements of all our students. Mr Bartlett was delighted to personally hand out over 460 Awards from October until the end of the school year and he hopes to be able to break the 500 mark this year…so come on Hinchley Wood students – show us yet again all the wonderful things you do, both inside and outside of school!
