Headteacher’s Welcome continued . . .

I am delighted to welcome you to John Hanson Community School’s website as the Headteacher of such an inspiring and caring place to learn.

rsz_rstJohn Hanson Community School is a community for learning where we care passionately about the academic, social and emotional development of your children. We understand that we have been entrusted with your children’s future and we work in partnership with you and your children to ensure that they are happy, safe, well looked after and that they enjoy and value their education whilst making the best academic progress possible.
All within John Hanson have always believed in the power of education to transform lives and the right of every child to receive an education of the highest quality. We want children to value their time with us and to embrace school life with enthusiasm and commitment. We believe that children should have the opportunity to develop the qualities of responsibility and respect for all members of our community including, most importantly, themselves.
At John Hanson Community School we have extremely high expectations. We expect children to excel academically while developing areas of interest from across the curriculum. We expect the highest standards of behavior and effort and want them to take advantage of every opportunity afforded to them during their 5 years with us.
At John Hanson we are fortunate enough to have a highly dedicated and exceptionally skilled body of staff. These committed people provide opportunities for students to achieve excellence within the classroom as well as opportunities to develop an extensive range of skills and interests in sport, music and the arts. In addition to these opportunities we also boast a range of sporting and academic successes including the winning of 40+ local, area and county competitions across 9 different sports and outstanding proportions of students achieving grade 4+ in GCSE English and Science.
We enjoy working closely with our local primary schools to ensure smooth transition and equally we pride ourselves on supporting students with choices of GCSE subjects in year 9 and their destinations when they leave us.
I am proud of all John Hanson students, our school and our community and would encourage you to engage in your child’s educational journey as we witness their fantastic achievements.
