The Hurst is a special place. We hope you enjoy your visit.
As you navigate around this web site you will gather information about the College, including details about our curriculum areas where we are fully staffed with qualified teachers who are committed to our pursuit of excellence for all. Being a large school our curriculum opportunities and facilities are extensive.
We are a Specialist Science College; the first to be designated in Hampshire and provide, as a comprehensive school, high quality education for approximately 1000 young people aged 11 - 16 years. The Hurst is also a full service extended school offering education and facilities to parents and children during the evenings, after school, at weekends and in the holidays. See the community links above or see The Community Website for more information.
As part of our Thought for the Week timetable, a survey will be carried out to ask school pupils about their attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes and other drugs such as cannabis as well as young people's experience with these substances.
This survey is being carried out in several schools across Hampshire and the Hurst Community College has agreed to take part.
Please be assured that by taking part in this reasearch it is not implied that your son/daughter is using either tobacco, alcohol or drugs. In fact, we are as much interested in the views of children who do not smoke as we are in the views of those who do.
By taking part in this research your child will be helping us to understand more about young people's experience, with information gathered used to help plan educational activities to prevent children taking up smoking, drinking or using drugs and supporting those wanting to stop.

There seems to be an increase in the number of parents dropping/collecting pupils off in the rear staff car park. Due to the amount of students moving around, young children being taken to Miss Polly's and for safety and safeguarding reasons this cannot continue.
If pupils are unable to walk from home, cycle in or catch the bus, please use the roads surrounding the school, including Woodlands Road and Long Grove, and allow your son/daughter to walk the short distance into school.
