Miss Jenkins

Deputy Head [Head of Senior]

I am always proud to show visitors our Hydesville Senior School community, in which our pupils are engaged and motivated within our vibrant and family-feel school setting.  Our small class sizes coupled with personalised teaching enable each and every pupil to achieve his or her full potential.  We pride ourselves on our diverse school community, in which every pupil has the opportunity to flourish.  Our GCSE results are competitive against both non-selective schools and the grammar schools in the borough.  Our collaboration with the Prep School and the other schools within the UK and global Cognita group continue to add to the success of our Senior School.
