What the Good Schools Guide says...

Head arrived when Hurst was treading water and has taken it from strength to strength and increased the numbers and raised the intellectual atmosphere, but 'feels that academic achievement is not an end in itself but a key to future success - life is about personal bests and engaging with opportunities'.

Special Education Needs

Hurstpierpoint College offers excellent, if limited, Learning Support. The Head of Learning Support has additional qualifications in Specific Learning Difficulties and liaises with all staff about pupils who receive L.S. Pupils with a known learning need are screened on entry to the school. Further screenings take place following Year 9 examinations. There is an 'in school' referral system for any students who are giving cause for concern. Parents are contacted on a regular basis and each member of the teaching staff is aware of all pupils with any additional learning need. As there is only one member of L.S. staff, plus 2 teachers for students with English as an additional language, the College is only able to offer one, weekly L.S. lesson per student. If a prospective pupil requires more than this we are, unfortunately, unlikely to be able to provide a greater level of support.
