WELCOME FROM THE HEADTEACHER

Thank you for your interest in Hetton School.

Our aim is to improve the life chances of all young people in our community. We do this by delivering high quality learning experiences both in and outside the classroom.

Students at Hetton learn in a school environment with superb facilities; dedicated, caring staff; and through a highly personalised curriculum designed to allow everyone to achieve high standards.

Our students are well presented, display good manners and demonstrate courtesy and respect to others. We work hard to develop their aspiration and ambition through a growth mind-set philosophy we call Learn to Achieve.

Hetton School is committed to providing high quality education for young people between the ages of 11 and 16. We focus on developing the whole child academically and pastorally.

I recommend 'The Boy at the back of the class' by Onjali Q. Rauf. This is a really good book that talks about refugees and would be great for the younger years.

Reading Ambassadors - Recommendation;

The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green.
A brilliantly written book that alternates narrating the story of multiple people without the novel. It leaves you continuously thinking what is going to happen next throughout the book and makes you feel like you never want to put it down. This is a book that made me feel connected to the book- and probably will make others feel connected. It talks about the role of women and how in some countries (in the book) they were seen to be as inferior to men and have a different role. However within that it shows the different classes between society- royals, middle class, poor. It is a book that is excellent and a good read.

“My eldest son left school in 2007 so there was never any question of which school my youngest would attend in 2012. However, what a huge difference I’ve found in the school from then until now. The school is very well led with the Head being a major presence, the staff are very well respected, approachable and helpful at all levels. Examination results continue to improve which is fantastic. Pupil moral is great with reward schemes, extra-curricular activities and school excursions open to all.”

Parent of Year 8 Student

"Parents and carers are broadly supportive of the school and its new leadership. They feel that their children are well cared for and supported"

Ofsted Quote

“As parents, we are always impressed with the way in which Hetton School staff listen to comments or concerns, and act quickly and effectively, particularly when relating to pupil progress and wellbeing. There’s a good community feeling. Hetton School has good systems in place to support students’ individual attainment. It offers good opportunities outside of the school day for pupils to progress further. We’re well aware that standards and results at Hetton School have risen in recent years and continue to do so.”

Parent of Year 7 and 10 Student

"Pupils are proud of their school and its caring, tolerant ethos".

Ofsted Quote

“I am very pleased with the pastoral support. Hetton School value the opinion of students and this can only help to build self-confidence into adulthood.”

Parent of Year 10 Student

"The quality of leadership and teaching in the local authority resource provision for pupils who have speech and language difficulties enables pupils to make strong progress".

Ofsted Quote

“I have been very impressed with how well my daughter has settled into Hetton School. She has made some very good friends, gets on well with her form tutor, enjoys her lessons and has made good academic progress. The school keeps me up-to-date with how she is doing and acknowledges when she has done something of particular merit. The Parents Forum gives us a voice to bring up any issues that arise and for the school to ask our opinion also. I would definitely recommend Hetton School to any prospective pupil or parent, and with a new build coming, Hetton will finally have the building this good school deserves.”
