“Choosing a secondary school is a serious and important task. Schools are each unique. Matching a school’s values, culture, goals and approach to your individual needs, is not straightforward. It requires considered thought. I am sure that you realize that the values, beliefs and motivation of the principal directly influence each unique school culture. It is therefore important for you to have an understanding of who I am, and in what I believe.”
My basic philosophy of education is based on the importance of goal-setting, learning from one’s mistakes and achievements, celebrating success and differences, and a willingness for all involved in education to question and critically review, in order to improve the quality of what we do. I believe that it is of the utmost importance to give our young people the opportunity to experience success and to learn about responsibility. At Hillmorton High School we develop in our students, a desire to learn, strong citizenship skills and a will to achieve to the best of their abilities.
Our talented staff at Hillmorton High School are passionate about education. Hillmorton High School provides an inclusive environment based on respect and caring.
Hillmorton is a school where the staff, together with the students, their families, the Board of Trustees, and the wider community, are indeed “creating better futures.”
