Put simply, Hautlieu is an extraordinary school that nurtures extraordinary students. We take great pride in providing a calm and focused learning environment that enables excellent examination results and first class preparation for university entrance and employment.

In the summer of 2016 our students yet again displayed outstanding levels of examination success. At GCSE this resulted in 99.3% of students achieving 5 or more A* to C grades and an impressive 91.3% performing to this standard including English and Mathematics. The combined performance of A-Level and International Baccalaureate Diploma students equated to 78.9% of all grades awarded being at the higher levels of A*- C. The pass rate was an excellent 99.2%. It was wonderful to see that all the hard work which led to these results was rewarded with the overwhelming majority of students securing their first choice of university.

So yes, we are very focused on supporting students to achieve the highest academic standards as this opens so many doors in terms of university and engaging, rewarding careers. But of course there is much more to Hautlieu than our long tradition of academic success. We passionately believe that we have a responsibility to develop young people who recognise the value of helping and caring for others. In line with our school motto of Summa Petamus, aim for the highest, our students take advantage of countless opportunities to challenge themselves be they sporting, cultural or charitable. It is humbling and inspiring to be part of a community with so many talented, caring and thoughtful young people.

I look forward to meeting when I can tell you more about Hautlieu and the opportunities we provide for our students.
