Young people have the opportunity to develop to their full potential in preparation of their future life where there is a passion for learning and mutual respect for all.
The school's curriculum is broad and balanced, and includes, where appropriate, all of the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. There is a particular emphasis on core subjects and on personal skills, as to address significant gaps in previous learning.
Pupils who attend the Hartlepool School follow the National Curriculum and we also have facilities to offer an alternative curriculum designed to meet the individual needs of our young people should this be appropriate.
We want each of our pupils to enjoy coming to school, to enjoy learning and to take advantage of all the opportunities and activities offered to them to bring out the best of their abilities.
Pupils can achieve success by working up through Unit Awards, Entry Level certificates and to full GCSE’s. We do recognise traditional routes are not for everyone, so pupils can also engage in alternatives such as BTEC and ASDAN qualifications. The school has worked hard to create individualised timetables for our students. All lessons have built in activity sessions which offer the opportunity for our pupils to enjoy and achieve.
