Open Evening for Prospective Parents and Students
Tuesday 28 September 2021
We would love you to visit our new school building where you will be able to see key areas, listen to informative talks and take part in activities and tours.
The Open Evening will be split into two slots to ensure the flow of families is more spread out:
- Slot 1: Will start at 4.45pm where you can tour the school until 6.00pm and then attend the Headteacher’s presentation at 6.00pm before you leave at 6:30pm.
- Slot 2: Will start at 6.00pm, where you can tour the school until 7.15pm and then attend the Headteacher’s presentation at 7:15pm before you leave at 7:45pm.
Whilst we normally extend a warm welcome to younger students on our Open Evening, this year we can only invite Year 6. To ensure everybody’s safety we will need to limit attendance to 3 spaces per family.
Open Mornings for Prospective Parents and Students
Thursday 30 September and Friday 1 October 2021 between 9.15 – 10.30 a.m.
Please email email@example.com – tours are organised by appointment only and will operate on a first booked, first served process. Alternatively, you can ring 020 8428 4330 with your request and a member of staff will then contact you to confirm your appointment.
You will have the opportunity to see school life and our facilities on a working day. The programme will include a tour, drop-in visits to lessons and a talk with members of the school’s Leadership Team – including some time for questions and answers for parents/carers.
Deciding on a secondary school for your child can be daunting. The educational agenda has changed substantially over the last few years with parents being ever bombarded with new statistics and performance measures. However, in many other ways, the choice is what it has always been, with parents simply wanting the best for their child.
Hatch End High School is a high performing, happy and thriving comprehensive school in the London Borough of Harrow. The school has a rich history of tradition but actively embraces the very best of new technologies and innovative practice. We have a high profile in the community supporting other schools and play a lead role in training the next generation of teachers.
We are conveniently situated in the north west of the borough with easy access to Central Harrow as well as Hertfordshire, Brent, Hillingdon and Barnet.
I am very proud to say that our students consistently make outstanding progress and we are consistently in the highest performing schools nationally for both GCSE and A Level performance. However, this academic excellence is paralleled by our equal commitment to develop the personality, talents and abilities of all our students. We care about our young people as individuals which means always ensuring a careful balance between challenge and support.
Ofsted, when they visited in 2013, picked up immediately on the palpable sense of inclusion, nurturing and rigour at Hatch End when they acknowledged in the very first line of the report – “Students thrive in this school.” In March 2018, they confirmed our strong progress and commitment to the wellbeing of every child.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome visits from both prospective parents and other members of the community.

A tour of the school
One of the great things about Hatch End High School is the way our students interact with other year groups. A brilliant way to demonstrate this is via our HEHS Radio station which broadcasts every breaktime and can be listened to in the common rooms, canteens and around the school.To take part in a game of 'HatchPhrase' click here
What our students have to say about their experience of Hatch End
The Great Hall
Our Great Hall is a fantastic theatre-style space that has been refurbished in the last couple of years. It’s where you will meet for assemblies and is a venue for our outside speakers who come to talk to you during your time at Hatch End High.
Every year we put on a school show that is open for all age groups to participate in. It’s a fantastic way to get to know students from across all year groups and rehearsals are normally held one evening a week after school during the autumn term. So if you’re interested in drama and performance, why not come along and join the fun!
