Joining Us

Joining Us

Hardenhuish is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school set in the magnificent parkland of the former Hardenhuish Manor and Chippenham Grammar School.

We enjoy an enviable reputation locally and nationally as a high performing academy, being the first school in Wiltshire to take advantage of more local leadership as part of the DfE’ s flagship academy scheme.

We have three priorities which permeate all that we do. Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, our aim is for all our young people to be ‘inspired to learn’ — to leave us as independent learners, with the necessary skills for lifelong learning.

Our second priority is the pastoral care of our young people. We put children at the centre of all we do and believe that a three-way partnership with school, home and each child ensures that every individual is ‘supported to succeed’. Hardenhuish has been oversubscribed for several years and this year all of the pupils joining us in Year 7 selected us as first preference — we appreciate the trust that parents have put in us.

Finally, we aim to ensure that each Hardenhuish pupil not only achieves academic success and the qualifications to take them to further or higher education and adult working life, but also takes advantage of the wide variety of social, personal and recreational enrichment opportunities that our impressive campus and fantastic staff enable us to offer.

Our Open events in 2020 will adapt to meet demand and comply with government guidance.
