Hurst Lodge School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Fantastic school”
"> What a lovely school, both my boys attend and they absolutely love it. Kind and supportive staff, couldn’t recommend enough!
“Excellent School”
"> My daughters attend Hawleyhurst and have completed their first year this summer. They have really flourished at school improving their academics as well as their physicality. They love school now (didn’t at their previous one) and are treated as individuals being taught with passion and understanding of who they are. Being pushed in their strengths and shown encouragement and and massive improvements in their weaknesses through positive learning and an ethos that they can do it. Who wouldn’t love the varied timetable they offer. This in my opinion makes for a well rounded child. When your child is happy they learn and absorb more. We love Hawleyhurst
“Excellent school”
"> This school has been excellent. My daughter started as a shy student but is now a confident independent learner. The school treats the children as individuals and puts their best interest first.
“Brilliant school for acedemics as well as arts and sport!”
"> I attend HawleyHurst, I was a former student at Hawley Place. The merge has really made changes but they are definitely for the good! I am in KS4 and love the school so much that now I am on half-term I miss being able to attend such a brilliant school.
“So far, excellent school!”
"> Our son has just finished his first half term at HawleyHurst in year 6 and we've seen a transformation in both his confidence and academic progress. Picking the right school for your child is hard but do your own research, choose based on how the school's ethos, aims teaching methods fit your requirements rather than anyone's opinion if they don't have a student there currently. For us we are so very glad we made the decision to come here and believe HawleyHurst has a bright future which our son is delighted to be part of.

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.
