Recent Academic Results
In August, we were delighted to be able to share GCSE examination results with our older learners. They worked incredibly hard and overcame many personal barriers, achieving the best set of results seen at Hardwick House School! All learners sat GCSE and GCSE equivalent qualifications, with 89% gaining a minimum of 5 qualifications.
Year 11 learners attained an average of 7.7 GCSE or equivalent qualifications each with 83% gaining 5 A*-G grades.
Post-16 learners attained 100% 5 A*-G grades, 66% 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths GCSE and 100% 5 Level 2 qualifications including Functional English and Maths.
It was also fantastic to see two learners achieve the new grade 8 in their English Language. Grade 8 sits roughly between the old A and A* grade; so this is phenomenal!

School ethos and values
Our ethos supports effective learning, builds confidence and self-esteem. It reinforces our belief that Hardwick House is more than a school, it is a support network for young people and their families which focuses on raising aspirations and developing prospects for the future.
Hardwick House School has four core aims:
To develop a young person’s ability to foster positive relationships.
To develop a young person’s independent life and living skills.
To develop a young person’s ability to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
To develop a young person’s employment prospects.
To achieve the school's aims, the curriculum at Hardwick House School is person centred. It is designed in partnership with the young person and their families in order to identify and address barriers which prevent them from leading full and active lives. Using 'one page profiles', Personalised Pathways are developed that focus on the holistic development of the young person, helping to support them.
