The Curriculum

Purposefully broad, the curriculum is designed to foster a child’s natural curiosity about the world through expert teaching and diverse opportunities, both in and out of the classroom. Instilling a lifelong love of learning and a strong sense of self-belief are cornerstones of our curriculum.

Games & The Arts

We believe in ‘Sport for All’ and provide a wide breadth of opportunity so each child can feel sporty. Weekly matches allow children to learn how to win humbly and lose graciously. Specialist teaching in Art, Music, Drama, Dance and D&T gives children a wealth of opportunity to embrace their creativity and learn how to perform.

Pastoral Care

Our principle ‘Happy Children Learn’ sums up the warm and caring relationships which support our unique educational and developmental experience. In order that each child develops a confidence and an inner belief in their ability, form tutors and the pastoral care team carefully monitor their well-being, happiness and attitude to school. The culture of looking after one another is fostered by the ‘house’ structure. Smaller house families give a wonderful opportunity to develop teamwork across age groups.

Recent Scholarships

Each year over 40 per cent of pupils achieve scholarships and awards to their senior schools, including academic, sport, music, performing arts, art and D&T.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

In a happy, family atmosphere we give each child every opportunity to realise their potential through academic achievement and by engaging in an exceptional breadth of activities which build their confidence and character. We wish to fuel each child’s enthusiasm for life and encourage them to engage positively with the world they live in.

Outstanding Characteristics

Set in 35 idyllic acres of country estate, Hawthorns children are given the time and space they need to enjoy their childhood. Just 30 minutes from Central London by train, we support busy parents by offering daily wraparound care from 7:15am to 6.00pm during term-time, as well as all year round holiday clubs.
