At Hatch End High School, we are always looking for former students who can inspire and motivate the current generation to academic success and career confidence. We are working with Future First, an education charity, to set up a network of alumni talents we can harness to support today’s students. Future First’s vision is that every state school or college should be supported by a thriving, engaged alumni community that helps it to do more for its students.

Hatch End High School was established in September 1974 on the site of what had been Blackwell School since 1948. It was proud to open its doors to Sixth Form students for the first time in September 2006 and the new Sixth Form Centre was officially opened by Gareth Thomas (an ex-student who went on to become a local MP and Secretary of State for International Development as well as Business & Enterprise). Our first cohort of Sixth Formers was just 90 students – we are pleased to now welcome approximately 300 students every September! Hatch End High School is also delighted to have expanded to offer places for Year 7 students since September 2010.

Hatch End High School has flourished under Headteachers: Mr Robert Batchelor, Mr Allan Jones and now Ms Sue Maguire.

We would love to stay connected with our old students in order to inspire our young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers.

Have you played a part in the school's history?  If so, we are very keen to re-connect with you.
