The curriculum has a real, hands-on feel where children participate and are not just spectators. We are passionate about developing in the children genuine awe, wonder and curiosity at the complexities of life and the world about us – past, present and future. The breadth and balance in the curriculum give pupils an opportunity to get excited about the lessons they have each day.
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. Every pupil performs in a drama production every year.
The children at Hazlegrove are surrounded with care. That care includes at its core staff for whom going many extra miles is an everyday occurrence, and who unashamedly make time to talk about the children. It includes a dedicated Pastoral Leadership Team which meets twice a week, a tutor system, a pastoral care curriculum embedded in everything we do and model, and an ever-developing framework for social and emotional literacy and support.
96 Scholarships and awards gained in the last 3 years to 28 schools.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
Hazlegrove is committed to celebrating childhood. A Hazlegrovian in the 21st century is a child that is empathetic, kind and connected to the world; one who is independent but knows that developing relationships and a sense of duty to the community are integral to a successful life. A vibrant and creative curriculum, exceptional pastoral care and stunning rural Somerset location combine to make children feel nurtured, motivated, inspired and encouraged to love learning for life.
