PRIDE Ethos

Schooling based on the Olympic and Paralympic values of pride

Students start their secondary school life here as boys but in seven short years they develop into young adults ready to take their place in the community as useful and confident citizens.  At The 
Hayesbrook School we try to help each student adjust to becoming an adult, at the same time providing him with skills and qualifications for the next stage of his life. There are many conflicting pressures in life at this age and we help pupils to develop strategies to cope with the demands made on them.  We help them form good study habits, broaden their interests and provide them with new experiences whilst aiming for qualifications which employers demand. 

In all that we do we promote the values of PRIDE:
