Values & Ethos

Welcome to Hazel Wood High School

Hazel Wood High School opened on the 2nd September 2019 as a sponsored Academy as part of Oak Learning Partnership, the school was formerly known as Broad Oak Sports college. Our new school launched following significant improvement works and it is a school we are very proud of.

Hazel Wood High School is a smaller than average secondary school with 717 students currently on roll  and retains its position at the heart of its local community and many families have sent all of their children to the school which contributes to the strong relationships we have with our parent body. We have good relationships with our local primary partners and take our students from over 22 different primary schools.

We currently have 43 teaching staff all of which are specialists in their teaching areas ably supported by 37 members of support staff. Staff are committed not only to providing a safe and stimulating classroom and learning environment but also to providing opportunities that enrich the lives of our students.

We place great emphasis on an engaging curriculum and we are very proud of our unique Year 7 transition model that aims to ensure a smooth, positive and exciting experience throughout the transition year both academically and pastorally.

Our central values of Respect, Responsibility and Aspiration permeate everything we do and we would encourage you to come into school to have a look around and talk with our staff at any time.

Our Vision

Fostering a sense of pride and community and providing opportunity for all to excel.
