Values and Ethos
A warm welcome to The Hurst Community College. We are a successful, high-attaining community school blessed with a stunning countryside setting and excellent facilities. In our popular, medium-sized school we ensure that class sizes are small and learning is personalised. We are extremely ambitious and fully committed to ensuring every pupil excels in their achievements, as expressed in our school strap-line: ambition, commitment, excellence.
At The Hurst, we develop pupils into confident learners who are not only equipped to gain excellent exam outcomes in the short-term but also for a lifetime of learning in the long-term. Our team of expertly skilled staff deliver fun, active and engaging lessons that inspire pupils to achieve highly.
Pupils are happy and safe, respected and respectful, well behaved and always encouraged to ‘aim high.’ Relationships are strong and we pride ourselves on knowing our pupils as individuals so that they can be successful at school.
From our numerous House charity fundraising events to our long-standing Community Day, we are committed to developing pupils with a strong sense of responsibility towards their school, local and global communities. In line with our commitment to a community ethos, every pupil belongs to a small mixed-age tutor group. This allows for highly personalised pastoral care and helps build fantastic support networks across year groups.
Our ambition is that every pupil feels challenged and stimulated during their time at The Hurst, both in and out of lessons. The school offers a fantastic array of enrichment activities and trips to cater for all tastes.
The Hurst is a thriving and forward-looking establishment. For a fuller flavour of our dynamic and nurturing environment you are most welcome to come and see us in action. Please contact me to arrange a visit.
