Welcome and Vision

HBHG team 24

Our Vision

For students to fully immerse themselves in our living, Christian community. We believe in creating a culture where students feel empowered to make ambitious choices, have the confidence to exceed their expectations, are open-minded in their thinking, promote equality for all, and leave Year 13 with the desire and belief that change is possible.  

We achieve this through our core values and aims:

  • Instilling our belief that everyone has a unique spiritual identity which they are called to fulfil
  • Offering a broad curriculum which empowers students to be aspirational and achieve beyond their potential
  • Promoting an inclusive environment where diversity is valued and students have the confidence to challenge injustice and stand up for what is right
  • Advocating the importance of hard work, resilience and perseverance
  • Developing a thirst for knowledge and enthusiasm for learning beyond the classroom
  • Fostering an environment in which students are willing to take risks, learn from their mistakes and bring about positive change
  • Providing clear guidance on future pathways so that students can make informed choices about life beyond Sixth Form
  • Offering a wide range of leadership opportunities allowing students to contribute to the whole school community
  • Creating an environment in which student wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, so that students feel supported, listened to and valued
