• "Pupils say that staff encourage them to aim for extraordinary goals in life." -OFSTED 2019

The Hertswood Curriculum is founded on the concept of the Growth Mindset (Carol Dweck) and the idea that every student should be able to achieve their best with effort during their time at school.

All students begin Year 7 with a broad curriculum including PE, art, drama, music and design technology. The content and assessments in all lessons enable students to build a broad subject knowledge. Students are assessed using challenging assessments, similar to those they will encounter at GCSE, so that they can begin to develop higher order thinking skills from the beginning of their time at Hertswood.
