School Description

At Hopwood Hall School, pupils who have missed a significant amount of their education get a second chance. Teachers take time to build positive relationships that help pupils to re-engage with learning. Pupils’ attendance quickly improves because they love coming to this school. Pupils make strong progress once they are familiar with the surroundings and routines. Pupils are polite and respectful towards others. The school is calm and orderly. Pupils respond positively to leaders’ clear behaviour expectations. Behaviour sanctions are rarely needed. Bullying has so far not happened. Pupils forge strong friendships here when previously this may have been difficult for them. Teachers adapt the curriculum to address pupils’ needs. Teachers find out about pupils’ interests and hook them into learning through this. However, in some subjects, teachers pursue pupils’ interests, but stray too far from the curriculum plans. This means that pupils’ learning does not always build logically from what they already know. Teachers plan regular opportunities for pupils to socialise. At lunchtime, pupils play games, such as table tennis, chess and cards, that help them to develop social skills. Activities such as mock trials help pupils to build the confidence and resilience they will need as adults. Pupils relish the opportunity to engage in this level of debate.
