Hinchley Wood is a very popular school, which is oversubscribed each year, we have over 1,400 students on roll including 275 in our Sixth Form. We are one of the top 200 performing schools in England and Wales in terms of the progress our students make between the end of Key Stage 2 and their GCSEs. We are extremely proud of our students’ academic achievements but we also celebrate student progress and development in all areas and we enjoy outstanding sporting and creative achievements. We take staff and student wellbeing very seriously and have invested time and money in ensuring that all members of our school feel supported and happy.
We have a, well-developed programme for ECTs and we believe that Hinchley Wood would be an excellent place to start your career. Below are testimonies from two of our current ECTS:
"As an ECT, HWS offered me the best start to my career. Working with experienced professionals in a highly aspirational environment equipped me with the guidance and support needed to succeed in my initial years. HWS is committed to teaching and learning; and offers regular training and opportunities to observe and discuss best practice. I would encourage any ECT to apply to HWS." (ECT – PRE)
“At Hinchley Wood School I’ve benefited from working with a very experienced mentor, who has been supporting new teachers for many years. My mentor understands the numerous challenges experienced by those new to the profession, and willingly dedicates seemingly endless amounts of her time to providing support and guidance. Like so many at Hinchley Wood School, my mentor is a very experienced classroom teacher herself, meaning that I have ample opportunities to observe best practice in the classroom. Equally, whilst the new Early Career Framework introduced significant reforms to statutory induction, it is evident that the mentoring team have been working hard to develop their understanding of its many requirements, applying their existing coaching and mentoring expertise to this new programme.” (ECT – Business)
