Dear Parents,

Welcome to Hodge Hill College.

At Hodge Hill College we believe that all our pupils can achieve if they have confidence, a clear focus and actively participate in learning.  British Values: of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance permeates college life, underpins our curriculum delivery and supports the high expectations we set our pupils.

We have travelled a great distance as a college during the last three years. We are a ‘good school’, with good results, but want even more for our pupils. That’s why our focus is on pupil self -management and independent learning.  Without these skills our pupils will not reach outstanding outcomes.

Our Ethos

Our ethos drives our personal and community development. Our focus is to develop pupil confidence, aspiration, self-management and hard work which enables all our pupils to:  Dream, Believe, Achieve.

Dream – our pupils need high aspirations for their careers and working adult life to provide focus and direction.

Believe – our pupils need the confidence for self-belief, the ability to try and sometimes fail, but through that failure learn, developing wisdom and maturity. By taking that leap of faith, through self-belief we achieve our goals.

Achieve – Hard work, focus, determination and the right attitudes to learning help us overcome obstacles and achieve all our life goals. 

Our college CARE brand: Courtesy, Aspiration, Respect and Empathy is embedded in the daily lives of our pupils.  It helps them to develop maturity, character and resilience.

British values are an intrinsic part of college life delivered through the college ethos and in particular through our Care brand. They also underpin our assemblies, thought for the day and college displays. A large number of projects have been undertaken by different year groups to explore the theme and communicate it to the whole college population. In addition, external agencies have been invited to provide training on INSET days to ensure that staff are fully aware of what they should be promoting.

Our state of the art facilities ensure that pupils get the best possible opportunities to succeed. Success comes with continued partnership working with parents and families to ensure that all pupils fulfil their potential.

Best wishes,

Mrs Ann Andersen
