Through the House system we seek to further foster our sense of school community and student’s sense of loyalty. There are increased opportunities, not only for leadership but also responsibility and competition. Students are in mixed age forms, four students from Years 7-13. Through this we hope to engender a real sense of accountability to each other as well as giving our students the skills to work successfully with people of all ages.Read More
During Form time, all students participate in a range of learning activities which are meticulously planned to meet their needs. At West Hatch we believe in developing the spiritual, moral, social and emotional aspects of our students as well as their academic achievement. Therefore through weekly PSHEC lessons, our students are given the opportunity to discuss a range of issues facing young people in today’s society. Students also work on literacy and numeracy skills within Form time and regularly participate in mentoring activities.Read More
