The breadth and balance in the curriculum give pupils an opportunity to get excited about the lessons they have each day. The development of a creative and innovative curriculum sits alongside outdoor learning and sustainability.

Games & The Arts

Sport is a clear strength and significant success is achieved by pupils in team and individual sports. Drama and music are part of our DNA with choirs, ensemble groups and theatre productions filling in any gaps. Every pupil performing in a major drama production every year means the stage should hold no fears.

Pastoral Care

There is a distinctive sense of community and wellbeing at Hazlegrove. The happiness of every child is a priority, especially for the 100 or so boarders. ‘The pastoral care of the pupils is exemplary.’ ISI

Senior Exit Schools

Numerous, including our own senior school King’s Bruton. Also Bryanston, Canford, Downside, Marlborough, Millfield, Sherborne, Sherborne Girls, St Mary’s Ascot, St Mary’s Calne and Winchester.

Recent Scholarships

An impressive 99 scholarships and awards have been gained to 27 different schools over the last three years – these included 20 academic, 30 sport, 15 music and 12 all-rounder scholarships and awards.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We delight in children being children and are committed to actively celebrating childhood, protecting those in our care whilst fully preparing them for when they leave the school at the age of 13.

Outstanding Characteristics

The Good Schools’ Guide writes: ‘Try as we might, we could not find anything to fault about this super one-off school.’ Pupils lay down firm foundations in all areas of the curriculum, on which they can build in future years. Academic rigour sits alongside creative ambition, teamwork and a love of learning. Hazlegrove encourages individuality and values determination and perseverance, as well as qualities such as compassion and kindness. For the boarders there is a genuine sense of belonging to the Hazlegrove family.
