About Hazel Grove High School
Hazel Grove High School is a 21st Century school working with the community in partnership to build a better future for our students. We have a well qualified and dedicated staff that are committed to Investors in People standards. Team work is the hallmark of the school’s management style and team leaders are supported by the Senior Leadership Team. There is a strong positive focus on developing the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom.
The school is committed to continuous improvement and converted to Academy status on 1st March 2012. We are also extremely proud to have opened our new Sixth Form in September 2013. We are an organisation that values its staff and their work with students. We support the view that all members of our school community are learners: adults as well as students. Staff are supported with training opportunities designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom. This includes a bursary programme through which all staff can apply to undertake a 12-month research project of their choosing for which they receive direct funding. Moreover, a comprehensive programme of support for newly qualified staff is well established and is viewed as a key strength by those who have been newly appointed.
Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their work and behaviour. Students are also encouraged to develop their own values and opinions and to respect those of others. We have a flourishing programme of extra-curricular provisions including visits and residential opportunities. The Student Council is a strength of the school.
Hazel Grove is a school in which all children are challenged, developed and supported. There are many opportunities for them to develop their talents, skills and interests. Sport, music, drama and community service are all flourishing activities that children can enjoy.
