REASSURINGLY SUPPORTIVE

Few schools, if any, have the closeness of community you find at Hurtwood – where students and teachers interact in all areas of school life

 

Hurtwood has the sort of teachers you always wished you’d had when you were younger.

They are A-level specialists teaching exclusively at sixth-form level. They are great communicators, are passionate about their chosen subject, and know how to inspire their students. They are also a vital part of a team that ensures students achieve their full potential, often far in excess of their own expectations.

As well as being an inspirational environment, Hurtwood is also exceptionally supportive.

Our unique system for monitoring academic progress is probably the single most important reason why our students do so well.

Contrary to the style of many other schools, Hurtwood does not believe that all students of sixth-form age are naturally equipped to manage their academic career by themselves.

It is effective on many fronts, keeping students on target and providing everyone involved – students, staff, school management and parents – with a permanently up-to-date picture of progress.

It also enables Housemasters and personal tutors to help their students on the really important issues and in doing so to develop a stronger working relationship.

As well as being an inspirational environment, Hurtwood is also exceptionally supportive.

In both an academic and a pastoral sense Hurtwood teachers act much more as mentors than monitors and are there as needed to give counsel and a real-world perspective.
