Welcome to Hylands School

Hylands School is a happy and friendly school where the atmosphere is productive and supportive for all learners. Our experienced and committed teaching staff aim to stretch and challenge all our students to fulfil their absolute potential and to support students when learning and life is challenging.
The school's vision is that all students should be given the best experiences and opportunities whilst they are with us; stimulating a love of learning and aspiration in all the students who join our community.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are very proud of our school and would be delighted to show you around.

About us

We provide an excellent academic experience for our Year 12 and 13 students, which in turn helps furnish them with a strong foundation for their future. Our flourishing Sixth Form provides students with opportunities, responsibility and a vibrant community spirit, which we firmly believe contributes to their overall social and personal development.

Additional support

Hylands attaches great importance to supporting students in dealing with any difficulties they may have. We are proud of the strong reputation we have for pastoral care in the school. We have successfully put in place structures to look after the welfare of our students.

We strive to get to know our students individually - a process which begins with Tutors. Added to this, we have recently enhanced the structure with creation of a dedicated Pastoral Support Team.

Parents can now contact by phone or email any of the three full-time Pastoral Support Managers who are on hand to deal directly with any problems.

These managers are very proactive. They tour the school, strengthening relationships with their year groups and supporting teachers to ensure every student attains their full potential.

Learner success

At Hylands School Gifted and Talented students are identified in each year group. They are monitored throughout their time at Hylands and the register is continuously updated based on government testing results and teacher’s national curriculum assessment levels. Each student’s workload and progress in all subjects will be monitored. Enrichment and further development will be offered throughout the year in a number of subjects.

Parents will be informed formally of their child’s inclusion on the Gifted and Talented register during the Autumn term. The Gifted and Talented register is a working document, therefore it will be reviewed at the end of each academic year. If a student is on the Gifted and Talented register it means that Hylands have recognised that the student has the potential to succeed. Subject teachers will challenge Gifted and Talented students in lessons to unlock this potential.
