Learn to Achieve
Hetton is a school where we aim to have the highest expectations of students and ourselves – Where every student, no matter what their starting point, is expected to operate with a Growth Mindset. We define this as Learn to Achieve
A belief that we can all improve – that ability is not fixed
- Embracing challenge – because it makes us stronger
- Showing resilience – stick in when the going gets tough
- Welcome mistakes – learning from them is how we grow and achieve success
- Giving 100% effort – this will always prevail over talent alone in the long-term
- Seek out and learn from feedback – learning from those that know or have experience
- Find inspiration in the success of others – achievement is not competitive, it is complementary
Hetton is a school that values the wellbeing of students and staff. We work hard to ensure that all are supported. Hetton is an environment where everyone is wholly committed to success, but also has time to enjoy life beyond our school.
Hetton is a school where we aim to deliver a highly effective staff-training programme, mapped out for every individual. At Hetton we thrive through our values of: Respect. Learn. Achieve. and our Learn to Achieve philosophy.
Our Developing Vision: Attitude to Learning, Evidence-based T&L & Inclusive Education
We will continue to develop our student’s positive attitude to learning, including a high-functioning pastoral care system that enhances student’s academic success and is symbiotic with their wellbeing.
We will develop our effectiveness through evidence-based teaching and learning – where we collaborate more as a whole staff, regularly evaluating our practice ensuring that students have a great experience regardless of the classroom they enter.
We will deliver the highest standard of education to all students, regardless of their background. We will achieve this through providing all students with a rigorous education, which challenges them, not only academically, but also in terms of their contribution to society.
