Where Decision Makers are Made

Discerning how to make a sound decision is an important fragment of personal advancement. There are a number of schools that have a generic approach in teaching where they would squeeze students into familiar molds and into well-established passages which result to suppression of the child’s creativity and individuality.
At Hurtwood, led by certified and caring teachers, and in an organized and encouraging venue, Students are given the freedom to assert themselves and are motivated to stand against the norm.

Students live in one of five country houses or their lodges, some of which are on the campus and some nearby.
Each House has a Housemaster who lives in and a team of House Tutors. The Housemaster is the link between the school and your parents and is their first point of contact on all academic and pastoral matters.
The House staff are responsible for looking after you, for monitoring your academic progress, for providing guidance and for creating a warm, supportive and organised family unit. We like to think of as a sense of ‘structured informality’.
All of the working day is spent on campus and you are transported back to your House after supper every evening by the House staff.
You will have a study bedroom which is normally shared with one other student, although there are some singles for second year students and a few triples.
There are also kitchen facilities in every house for toast, pot noodles, tea and coffee etc, games rooms and communal TV rooms.
You may also bring your own TV, video or DVD. All houses have internet access and a wireless LAN.
