About Us

The Headteacher – Mr J. Hicks

Meet Our Teachers!

Welcome to Hawthorn High School

Welcome back to a new school year. Hopefully you will have seen in the press the record breaking results that students here at Hawthorn High achieved last summer where the number achieving a C grade or better at GCSE increased to the highest numbers ever in English, Maths, Science and many other subjects. The number of students achieving the gold standard of 5 or more GCSEs at C grade or better (including English and Maths) will now be at least 62% and this represents a 12% improvement on the 2015 figure and a 28% improvement on the figure four years ago. Our results now compare extremely favourably with schools across Wales (placing us in the top 25% of similar schools) and we are all so grateful for your continued support in achieving such impressive results.

There are many exciting site developments at the school including:

  • The reopening of the school swimming pool.
  • The construction during the summer break of a new footpath and picnic areas at the rear of the school.
  • The establishment of a lower school provision housing the majority of Year 7 and 8 lessons in their own part of the school.
  • Work beginning on a brand new four badminton court size sports hall which we hope will open its doors in January.
  • Refurbishment work on the tennis court facilities and the area around the pool and outdoor changing facilities.

It has been delightful to see the pupils looking so smart at the start of this school year and wearing their blazers with pride. We wrote to parents during the academic year 2014-15 to inform you that the new school blazer (designed in discussion with pupils, parents and governors) would be a compulsory part of school uniform for all pupils in Years 7 to 11 from September 2016 but would be phased in for certain year groups last year. Can I take this opportunity to remind you that the school jumper is now an optional item of uniform and that hoodies are classed as non-waterproof hooded tops so not permitted to be worn instead of a coat. Apart from at lunchtime, the blazer is to be worn at all times on the site other than when pupils are seated in classrooms or in PE lessons. On especially hot days a decision will be made that ‘shirt sleeves are in order’ and blazer requirements will be relaxed during the day as appropriate. We are delighted with your support on this important aspect of school life.

If you have not already done so, please download the school app (available from google play and the app store) to stay abreast of all the latest information from the school and follow us on twitter to see all the exciting things going on on a daily basis. Once again, thank you for the support you give to the school and your children and we look forward to another successful year working in partnership with the whole community.
