HYDESVILLE’S SENIOR SCHOOL RANKED AS THE BEST PERFORMING NON-SELECTIVE SECONDARY SCHOOL IN WALSALL BY THE DFE
It is no surprise that Hydesville Tower School is placed at the heights of GCSE performance tables year-on-year.
Without an 11-plus entry mechanism, success is secured through highly qualified, inspiring teachers and small class sizes that allow for personalised learning, exceptional pastoral care and a flexible curriculum. Learning is tailored to meet the needs of pupils, resulting in Hydesville’s Senior School being continually ranked as the best performing non-selective secondary school in Walsall by the DfE.
Performance tables are one measure of success, but the progress made by pupils is also tremendous. Headteacher, Mrs Samra, describes: “To be in an environment where every child is known well is incredibly powerful for their education. No one slips through the net because their individual aptitudes and attitudes are understood. The school has a genuine family-feel, so parents know that their child will be supported throughout their time as an adolescent and encouraged to flourish.”
Hydesville adopts an individualised learning model whereby teachers provide a tailored programme for every pupil, designed to help them achieve thei fullest potential. This is done by regularly assessing academic achievement, so a comprehensive picture is built of each pupil’s ability and progress. As a result, pupils understand where they are on their personal learning journey and are supported by a system of pastoral and academic mentoring, challenge and support.
Beyond the classroom, pupils participate in a range of sporting, performance and extracurricular activities, and are also encouraged to engage in adventure and charitable causes, including the ‘Hydesville Challenge’ and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The school is an active member of the Independent Schools Association.
