Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am delighted to welcome you to our Virtual Open Event for 2020. It is unfortunate that due to the current situation we are unable to welcome you in person to the school but I hope that the information provided online will still give an insight to the ethos and values of the school.
Hitchin Girls’ School has a long history of success and offers a unique blend of tradition and innovation evident across the students’ learning experience within the school. In June 2013, OfSTED judged Hitchin Girls’ to be an ‘Outstanding’ school where students of all abilities and backgrounds make very good progress.
Over the last few years the school has seen a huge transformation in its infrastructure with the opening of a Sixth Form Centre, Sports Hall, extended dining room and additional science lab and the Woodside Building – a new classroom block allowing the school to increase the entrance numbers by 45 into Year 7.
We are very proud of our record of academic and sporting success over many years and this is coupled with a drive for personal achievement for all students in every aspect of their education. We aim to be a school where excellence is the norm and high quality teaching and learning drives everything that we do. The very highest standards of conduct, respect, effort and personal attainment are our goal.
Many of our students refer to our community as a family and I am continually impressed by the friendly and supportive atmosphere evident in the school which makes it such a happy place.
We are sorry that we are unable to welcome visitors to the school at present. If having reviewed the information available online, you have any questions about us, and how we can support your daughter throughout her secondary education journey please do use the online form to submit a question.
I look forward to welcoming you and your daughter into our community.
Chairman of Governors
