Headteacher Welcome

Wendy hemmingsleyThe Henry Box School is an exciting community with which to be associated. We are proud of our success at both GCSE and A level and our results year on year are up there with the very best amongst similar schools nationally. We have a large and very successful Sixth Form where students value the exciting mix of academic rigour and community involvement that an excellent school sixth form provides. Importantly, our students tell us that they enjoy school and feel supported. Teachers have high expectations of themselves and of our students. We are always looking for ways to support and challenge our young people so that they can achieve their best. Understandably, we have high expectations in relation to attendance, punctuality, uniform and conduct; we want every student to have the opportunity to be successful and achieve their potential.

Students at The Henry Box School know about the importance of examination success but they also know that being part of this school means that they will be given a whole range of opportunities to excel in activities beyond the classroom. These include: the arts, sport, technology, languages, raising money for charity, reading widely, being active members of the community and The Duke of Edinburgh Award to name but a few. We are a genuinely comprehensive school and are proud of our commitment to our core values of: respect, self-discipline, responsibility and hard work. This website can only give you a flavour of The Henry Box School. If you would like to know more and are considering The Henry Box School for your child, please contact us to arrange an appointment. We would be delighted to show you around and assist you in making the important decision of choosing a school that is right for your child.
