School leaders and staff have a strong moral purpose.
– OFSTED November 2017
Our School purpose: To inspire confident learners who will thrive in a changing world
and believe in the limitless potential of people.
Our school is a truly great school. We are obsessed with being authentic, making sure that we do what we say we do at all times. We focus single-mindedly upon providing the best teaching we possibly can for our students. If you want to become an even better teacher than you are now and want to work hard on your practice, then Huntington will be the school for you.
In November 2017 OFSTED recognised the high quality of our provision when we were judged to be an Outstanding school.
An Education Endowment Foundation/Institute for Effective Education
National Research School
The school’s ‘Research School’ status has had an extraordinary impact on teachers’ understanding of how to improve their practice – OFSTED November 2017
In November 2016 we were officially designated an EEF/IEE Research School, one of only 22 in the country. Since then, Justine Greening has put EEF/IEE Research Schools at the heart of raising achievement in our most deprived areas in the country. Over the next few years Huntington will be playing a crucial role in this DfE initiative and will provide colleagues with great professional development opportunities.
Research Schools aim to lead the way in the use of evidence-based practice. Through the network we share what they know about putting research into practice, and support schools in their region to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning so that they really make a difference in the classroom.
Becoming a Research School is an exciting development that will help us to support teachers and school leaders in our region, and nationally, at a time of turmoil and increasingly challenging curricula and assessment. We see our role as providing support tools and training to better inform school improvement and improve student outcomes.
The school is steeped in research-based practice, which is leading to pupils making rapid gains in their skills, knowledge and understanding – OFSTED November 2017
