We want every day to be a good day and have an ambitious mix of the traditional (including Latin) with fringe subjects like Mandarin, outdoor education, chess and bridge. Independence in learning and a ‘hands on’ approach are central themes.

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 well-being 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

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

It’s about ordinary children getting caught up in the spirit of the place and achieving extraordinary things. It’s a school where it’s OK to be yourself.

Outstanding Characteristics

Our ISI report 2015 states ‘Pupils have a strong moral compass, and their determination to be upstanding members of society both within the school community and beyond is evident. Their behaviour, courtesy, consideration and kindness towards each other, to new members of their community and to visitors are all exemplary.’ At our heart we are simply a school that has three core themes – values, relationships and a belief in childhood.
