- What makes this school different and sets itself apart from others in the area?
We have a flexible creative and academic framework. If there’s something your child loves doing, whether it’s sport, acting or dancing, we’ll support that interest alongside their academic studies.
We are an all-through school from Early Years to Sixth Form. When you visit Hurst Lodge School you’ll see children of all ages playing together and learning from each other. It’s all part of our whole school philosophy where we encourage friendships across all ages. We achieve this through whole school events, mentoring and participation in House competitions and across school activities.
There is nothing more boring than sitting in a classroom starring at copious notes. Whenever possible teachers are encouraged to make their lessons practical and show the applications in real life of what they are teaching.
