Welcome to Mill Hill County High School
I am delighted to have the opportunity to introduce this site, which will, I hope, give a flavour of Mill Hill County High School.
The students of this school are very engaging, aspire to be successful and achieve a great deal. The school strives to provide an environment in which they can develop their strengths, overcome barriers and learn to consider others. I have the privilege of leading a harmonious, dedicated and highly capable body of teaching, clerical and technical staff. There is great pride in the school and a real desire to improve the quality of service we offer. The school is strongly supported by its Governing Body.
The school is highly traditional in its approach to student behaviour and attitudes. Students are expected to wear our distinctive uniform in a conventional manner, i.e. with collars buttoned, shirts tucked in, etc. While all members of the school community are expected to behave respectfully to one another, there is an explicit expectation that students will respect their elders, maintaining a wholly courteous manner towards teaching and support staff, adult visitors and members of the general public. In classes, every student is expected to be trying to be a pleasure to teach.
In contrast to the nationwide decrease in levels of extracurricular activity and school trips, the staff of Mill Hill County High School place great value upon the learning experiences which can be provided by sports teams, musical ensembles, dramatic and dance productions, clubs of every sort and educational visits. The school’s extra-curricular programme is exceptional and represents a vast amount of voluntary effort on the part of staff; students are expected to avail themselves of appropriate opportunities and to learn the virtues of loyalty and faithfulness.
Only one aspect of the School has been disappointing for me: I regret the fact that we cannot admit all the children who would like to come here; if we did, the School would grow to be 10,000 strong. It is gratifying to be popular but it is dispiriting to have to disappoint well over 1,000 applicants every year.
I hope that you will find this website interesting and that it will provide you with all the information which you seek.
