We have a simple motto: Word hard, be kind.
We have four values that underpin everything we do as a community school:
Our current staff sing our praises always. See what they particularly like below:
- Staff are trusted to use their professional judgement in planning, delivering and assessing lessons. There are high expectations of the conduct of students and staff. It is a supportive school with staff who are willing to help each other.
- The students at HGSS are committed to getting a good education. They work hard and want to do well. They are a pleasure to teach.
- I get up in the morning and look forward to coming to work. No two days are the same but every day is a pleasurable challenge. I think the new Headteacher has amazing qualities and it is obvious that he cares about his staff and his students.
- In comparison to other schools I have worked at, the “team” is so supportive, welcoming and friendly – it makes such a difference. The Headteacher and all SLT members are approachable and treat me as valuable member of their team.
