A very warm welcome to Hodge Hill Girls' School. We are a secondary school, found in the heart of the Hodge Hill Community. We hope our website will open our doors to you, please come in and explore!
We recognise that family life is very busy. Parents, carers, pupils and community alike need fast and easy access to information. Please check our site regularly for updates and breaking news.
As a small school with strong community values; we know and care for every pupil as an individual. All local pupils are welcome in this school. We do not have a selection process and we strive to meet the needs of each member of our school community, celebrating diversity and always striving for equality in our school family and the wider world. Our ethos encourages mutual respect and support to enable every pupil to make the greatest personal, social and academic progress during their time with us, preparing them for successful careers and fulfilling lives.
A relentless drive for the best academic progress for each individual pupil, sits comfortably alongside the wider curriculum where values education embraces citizenship, pupil voice, charity and community work. This term we are developing new partnerships with a local care home for the elderly and Trident Reach the People Charity alongside well established links like the Stechford Food Bank. Charity work raises over £6000 every year. A pupil pilot group has started planning our route through the UNICEF Rights, Respecting Responsibilities Mark and Hodge Hill Girls’ School Thinktank are ready to begin their work.
In academic studies there are personalised pathways in learning to meet the needs of individuals and groups of pupils. Lessons use a blend of modern technology, traditional teaching and individual support in every area of the curriculum. We understand from our self-evaluation that differentiation and challenge in lessons is of paramount importance to rates of individual pupil progress. The quality of marking, feedback, pupil response and homework support the pace of learning – these areas have been and continue to be areas of focus for the school. Our aim is supported by the six strand of our development planning below:
Pupils, families, staff and governors working together in consultation to help every pupil make expected progress, to help many pupils make better than expected progress and to help some pupils to make exceptional progress by:
- Ensuring pupils attend for a minimum of 96% and are not late
- Rewarding personal endeavour and community commitment
- Helping pupils overcome challenges in their work and behaviour
- Supporting physical health and emotional resilience
- Developing teaching and curriculum for high quality learning
- Developing the site, building and resources for best value 21st century learning
Here at Hodge Hill Girls' School, we genuinely value and strive to enhance working partnerships with our families, feeder schools and our local community. This partnership is essential in raising standards and achievement, every member of our family has a role to play in raising the aspirations of all our pupils to ensure we really are "Educating Tomorrow's Women Today".
