"This week, we have been collecting food and toiletry items which have been donated to the Kingston Food Bank - approximately 600 items were brought in by students. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported this worthy cause and helped brighten up someone else’s Christmas!"

Our Year 10 students are showing real enthusiasm with their current A2 self-portrait work and looking at creating 'reductive charcoal' in layers. Using the grid technique for accuracy, they covered their work with crushed charcoal and then used a rubber to bring out the light.

"Well done to Holly, Henry and Tristan in Year 7, who are pictured here showing off their pendants and key tags. They finished working on their pieces this week in their Design & Technology class!"

17:21 PM - 30 Nov 2023

"The 'Splendid' Government Inspector was a fantastic performance for all on the Yr12/13 Drama Trip to The Plesance Theatre, Islington. A brilliantly Brechtian performance of politics, parody and paranoia kept us entertained and exasperated in equal measure!"

18:05 PM - 28 Nov 2023

"Frantic Assembly's long-awaited Metamorphosis at The Yvonne Arnaud last Thursday night for all Drama Students in KS4 and 5. It was a challenging and dynamic play - lots to analyse and evaluate, a brilliant experience for all!"

Main School Open Evening 2023

 Wednesday 20 September 

On Wednesday 20 September we are holding our annual Open Evening at Hinchley Wood School for prospective students and their parents/carers.   This is open to current Year 6, although we appreciate that if your child in Year 5 has an EHCP you will want to visit the school this year as your application deadlines are slightly different.

Last year, we staggered the numbers of visitors on site and we found that students and parents had a much more positive experience in contrast to the days when rooms were very crowded.  We want to try and retain this and are therefore staggering arrivals throughout the evening.   No need to book in advance but please do pay close attention to the time slot allocated to you:
