General Information about the School
Hasland Hall Community School is an 11-16 Local Authority School which is well respected in the local community. It occupies a compact but attractive site in the South Eastern corner of Chesterfield, close to the M1 and within easy reach of the Peak District. There are currently 777 on roll, with a rise in numbers expected. The school aims reflect our commitment to the principles of comprehensive education and there is a high priority placed on inclusion and the effective use of the Pupil Premium and SEND funding. The school was judged as Good by OFSTED in September 2015. The improvement from 2013, when the school was deemed to be ‘Requiring Improvement’, is an indication of the commitment and determination of staff and students, and the support of parents.
While proud of our achievements so far, we are not complacent and we know that we can do much to develop the quality of the educational experiences we provide.
