“As the parent of a 17 year old I am delighted to have a copy of this fantastic DVD. If any teens you know need help with writing a University Personal Statement, this product would be a terrific help to them. I think that given the level of stress year 13’s in particular feel about writing their personal history it would be fantastic if they could all see the DVD and work through the exercises for themselves.” Mrs MacNiven

She has huge empathy to young people, taking time to get to know them as individuals and adapts the programme to their specific needs – whilst never losing focus in the end result of getting those young people in to work. The final results speak for themselves, with an 80% + placement rate you will struggle to find an equivalent programme.

The Job Academy model has a real future role in getting young people into work.”Rachel Wichall – Director of eDEN Garden Rooms Limited

Welcome to Henry Hinde Junior School 

On behalf of the staff, children and governors I would like to welcome you to Henry Hinde Junior School. I hope that our website will begin to help you see what our wonderful school can offer your family.

I feel very privileged to be introducing myself as the new Headteacher. I have worked here for a year as the Head of School. The positive, warm atmosphere and constant drive for improvement at Henry Hinde Junior School makes it a very special place. We have active governors and the school is supported by a wonderful community.

We are based on an extensive and extremely pleasant site which includes a large Forest School area. It was purpose built as a Middle School in 1974 and has eight classrooms, library, music room, family room, two computing suites, nurture room and hall.

Your child will be placed at the heart of everything we do. Our team of staff are skilled, hardworking and committed to developing all of your child, not just their academic ability. We recognise that success for every child will be different and we celebrate this in numerous ways. Achievement and good behaviour are encouraged using a positive approach.

We know how valuable each day at school is, so we want all of our children to be happy and safe, and to access an exciting, broad curriculum. We aim to extend opportunities outside of school in sport, dance and drama, for those children who wish to do take these up. In November 2016, Ofsted reported that ‘the school uses its physical education (PE) and sport premium well to provide specialist teaching. A wide range of sports and healthy activities are set out clearly.”

We aim to work closely with families. You know your child best and we believe that working together is the most beneficial way. Home school diaries, home visits and social events are all part of this partnership. If there is anything else you need to know then please get in touch and come and talk to us.

We love our school and we hope that you will too!

Mrs Rachael Allen
