Ofsted: a Good school
Following our latest Ofsted inspection in November 2012, HHS received a resounding 'Good' verdict. >> Read the Ofsted report.
Exam success... again!
For the third year running, HHS has enjoyed record GCSE results. In 2012, 72% of our students achieved five or more GCSEs at grade A*-C, including English and maths. Across all the subjects, 85% gained five A*-C grades. Our Sixth Form students also did extremely well once again, with an excellent average points score of 777.
We are proud of all of our students’ achievements, which are a testament to their hard work and that of their teachers. For more details, please see our Key Information.
The talented young cast of The Sound of Music
The snowy peaks and flowery meadows of Hellesdon came alive with The Sound of Music from 4-8 March, with the Performing Arts Department's fantastic 2013 production.
Congratulations to Miss Stanley, Mr Brown, the wonderful cast and their families on another superb and memorable performance.
At Hellesdon, we take pride in knowing every child as an individual. Pastoral care is organized through Heads of Year, Tutors and Mentors, with all our staff playing a part. The School has a friendly atmosphere and a well-publicized anti-bullying policy.

In September 2013, the Hellesdon Sixth Form Centre comes into being, offering a wide range of courses at AS, A2 and BTec. The new website is under development.
The School enjoys the active support of the PTA and all of our parents and carers, who have access to the latest information about their children’s progress through the Learning Gateway (login required).
Our excellent kitchen was given a five-star rating at its inspection at the end of July 2012. DinerMite serves up an inspiring selection of nourishing food every day.
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.
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 many 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.
