Message from the Head

Firstly, let me share how delighted I am to have been appointed as Headteacher at Hawthorn High School. It is a privilege to have this role at such a wonderful school, and I am very excited to welcome our children back to school.

We have an extremely dedicated and supportive staff, who work hard to provide the best opportunities for all of our children in a safe and happy environment. Our school motto underpins the essence of Hawthorn; we promote Healthy, Happy, and Successful students across our school.   Choosing the right secondary school for your child could be one of the hardest and most important decisions you have to make, and with many local schools aspiring to achieve the highest level for your child, what sets Hawthorn High School apart from the rest?

We are a consistently good school, offering a well-rounded education. Our Estyn report quantifies the excellent practice that takes place in our school.  We are extremely proud that our children achieve well above the national average at every measure. Whilst academic attainment is a focus for our school, our belief and success are also founded in a wider variety of aims for the children.

We strive to create a learning environment where children have fun. Our Vision underpins our goal – for our children to be the very best they can be. Relationships, attitudes, and behaviour are very positive and an ethos exists, in which learning together becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all. This instils confidence, resourcefulness and a willingness to learn. It gives our children a solid stepping stone to take responsibility for their future, and the confidence to go on and make important life decisions. We aim to provide the very best education and experiences to prepare our pupils for their next steps in life.

As a school, we are always looking for new ways to improve and grow. Our staff, coupled with supportive parents and governors, contribute greatly to the success of our school. We all work together with a common goal: to ensure that our children are healthy, happy and successful during their time with us.
