Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear Parents/Carers,

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

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 school 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 – we will be polite to everyone in and out of school

Achievement – we will celebrate our successes together, and be resilient in ensuring we achieve our very best

Respect – we will treat each other with respect; being kind, honest and caring towards each other

Empathy – we will think about our actions and how they might affect other people

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 that 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.

Hannah Herrmann
