Welcome from the Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to Hodge Hill College and to introduce myself as the new Headteacher. 

As I take on this new role here at the school, I look forward to continuing to work with the many of you as I have been doing over the previous six years as Deputy Head. Although times ahead may look challenging as we adapt to the new normal, all of us here at Hodge Hill College are committed to ensuring that our pupils, parents/carers and our community feel supported. We will ensure that whatever the challenges are that we face we will continue to do the very best for our students. 

As one of the highest achieving schools in Birmingham, we work hard to get the best out of every one of our pupils. We believe in providing a structured and disciplined working environment which alongside a broad, balanced and innovative curriculum ensures pupils can fulfil their potential. British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance permeate college life; they underpin our curriculum delivery and support the high expectations we set our pupils. 

Everything that we do in school both as staff and pupils comes back to our CARE brand

Courtesy – Being polite to everyone in and out of school

Achievement – Being resilient and making sure we achieve our very best

Respect – Saying please and thank you, being honest

Empathy – Understanding how others feel and empathising with them 

We know it is qualifications that open doors for our young people and we want them to leave us ready to successfully take on the next stage in their education or career, whatever they chose that to be. We recognise however that it is not just the examined curriculum which is important. As a school, we have a full programme of enrichment, CEIAG and SMSC that develops character and citizenship alongside pupil leadership opportunities. 

I am immensely proud to work with the big team here at Hodge Hill College.
