Our excellent kitchen was given a five-star rating at its latest inspection in 2012. DinerMite serves up an inspiring selection of nourishing food every day.

Community
Hellesdon High is a lively school with active links with the local community and our feeder primary schools; activities and courses for adults are also based at the School.

Sport
We offer a huge range of sporting activities to all students, including training in leadership skills, opportunities to take part in local leagues and competitions with other schools, and to enjoy extracurricular clubs and activities. Our students campaigned to save School Sports Partnerships, which they felt had helped young people in our area to get into and benefit from sport.
