Working at Hatch End High School
Headteacher's Welcome to Candidates
Hatch End High School is a high performing, innovative Academy in Harrow with a large and a very successful Sixth Form. We are extremely proud of our diverse and multi-ethnic cohort and outstanding reputation for inclusion. Standards and progress are high, but we are never complacent.
Our school ethos, We CARE: Co-operation, Ambition, Respect, Excellence, underpins everything we do. Please click on the links for more information on our school ethos and to view our school prospectus.
We work closely with the other Academies and High Schools in Harrow and are proud of our collaborative approach to school improvement.
Our Sixth Form is especially popular, attracting the majority of our own eligible Year 11 students, as well as many students each year from other schools, all of whom settle in remarkably quickly and strike up friendships with our existing students. Currently our Sixth Form comprises 270 students.
Ofsted, who visited the School in September 2013, graded Hatch End High School as 'Good' across all areas. In November 2018, they confirmed that this school continues to be 'Good'.
Our drive is to achieve outstanding school status and our progress on this journey has been evidenced with our sustained improvement in examination results. At both GCSE and A Level, we are consistently in the highest performing schools nationally for the progress students make.

Hatch End High School provides a happy, safe and calm learning environment. We have an excellent, well-qualified, enthusiastic and stable staff. Operating on a foundation of traditional values, Hatch End High School is an institution that welcomes change and regards itself as being at the forefront of development. Many staff have stayed for years, testament to the strong sense of camaraderie and mutual support but we recognise the importance of balancing this with welcoming new, equally enthusiastic, staff to ensure we grow as a professional community.
We encourage all prospective candidates to look in depth at our website in order to appreciate our very special working environment and we very much look forward to meeting you.
