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.
Following recent trials, The Hurst will be introducing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy with effect from Monday 15 June 2015.
This means that, from time to time, teachers might allow pupils to access the school wireless network on their own devices (e.g. mobile phones) in lesson to aid their learning. As technology develops and online learning opportunities flourish, schools around the country are recognising that they can offer a better classroom experience with a BYOD policy in place.
