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.

"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!"

Ofsted 2023

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Hinchley Wood School has been graded as 'Outstanding' in all areas in our recent Ofsted Inspection. The areas assessed include Quality of Education, Personal Development, Behaviour and Attitudes, Leadership and Management, and Sixth Form Provision. This achievement is a testament to the unwavering dedication and hard work of our students and staff.

It is noteworthy that nationally, only 20% of schools that received an 'Outstanding' rating under the previous Ofsted framework have maintained this top grading. In Surrey, this percentage drops even further, with only 8% of schools retaining their outstanding status. Our accomplishment, therefore, is truly excellent and underscores the exceptional quality of education provided at Hinchley Wood School.

The Ofsted report is available for parents, carers, and students to read via the link below, however, we recognise that the official report is subject to a strict word count, and there is so much more we would like to share with you. We dedicated our November 2023 Newsletter, link below, to give you some further information.
