Excellent Academics

Achieve academic success with excellent GCSE results consistently placing us in the top three in league tables. Hydesville Tower Senior School is ranked 9th in the UK and holds the prestigious position of the best in the West Midlands according to the Daily Telegraph’s GCSE league tables for small independent schools.

Holistic Approach

Emotional wellbeing is just as important as academic achievement and we want our pupils to be confident, compassionate and capable young people. We believe it’s crucial to develop a child’s character through teaching transferable skills that will help them to thrive in the future.

Solid Values

We have a strong family ethos, and instil a sense of great pride in our school community. We look after, support and encourage each other to always be our best.

My child is taken care of, my opinion and input matters to them, and I think school provides a good bridge between home and school.

Meet our Headteacher

Welcome to Hydesville Tower School; it is my privilege to be the Headteacher of such an exciting place of learning. As parents and carers, we all want the very best for our children. It is crucial that they are encouraged to fulfil their academic potential; but of equal importance is their preparation for the everchanging world beyond education, a world presenting both challenges and opportunities.

Here at Hydesville Tower School, we are a happy community in which everyone can do and be their best. We pride ourselves on providing a breath-taking array of opportunities, not only within our traditional academic curriculum but also throughout our extensive extra-curricular and enrichment programmes.
