About Us

The Hewens Mission – To Change The World!

With a curriculum designed to help our students become happy, successful, self-reliant and creative members of the society which their generation will build, Hewens College is the place where the future begins.

We strive to create a community which is welcoming, inclusive and supportive; where young people develop a genuine appetite for deep learning, together with an enthusiasm for life.  We have a caring ethos, supported by a strong pastoral system which ensures that children are safe and happy at college, allowing them to flourish academically.  We believe that education should not only focus on the delivery of challenging lessons which lead to outstanding academic results, but should also aim to develop each individual by exploring all aspects of learning; nurturing personal identity, encouraging empathy and embedding the importance of respect and integrity.

‘Leaders know the pupils in their school well and provide personalised support…….the school is friendly and there is a caring and reflective ethos’  (Ofsted 2019)

As part of The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust, we are committed to creating a learning environment where every student can make good progress and fulfil their own ambitions, whatever they may be. Our partnership with other high achieving colleges within the Trust enables us to make a positive difference in the education we deliver to our students. We offer a broad and innovative curriculum, which engages, enthuses and inspires.

Teachers are consistent in their approach and through excellent subject knowledge, have high expectations of all our students. This together with the overall quality of teaching and learning and strong leadership, ensures that all students reach their potential.

Please come and visit this successful college and see for yourself why – and how – we can change the world!
