Ethos

Welcome from the Headteacher

Hadlow Rural Community School is a unique school, with a unique ethos and curriculum. Pupils here are offered opportunities very different to those in other schools because of our commitment and vision to integrate land-based education into everything we do.

Pupils have the chance to not only study for the highest academic grades but also to participate in a wide variety of life-enhancing and enriching experiences, working in a beautiful outdoor environment in areas such as agriculture, horticulture and animal care.

Our innovative curriculum enables pupils of all ages to experience hands-on work with animals, growing food and tending plants. In doing this they achieve vital skills in teamwork, discipline, respect and responsibility, as well as working towards a range of practical, meaningful and worthwhile vocational qualifications.

Hadlow Rural Community School aims to be a centre of academic excellence. All pupils study a wide range of GCSE subjects, including those expected in the English Baccalaureate – English, Maths, Science, Geography and Languages. We have very high expectations of our pupils – we expect them all to achieve academically, as well as in vocational subjects, while developing and flourishing as individuals, with a sense of responsibility for themselves, each other and the environment.
