Listen to what our students have to say

There is nothing to worry about coming to HRS - you soon get used to things and end up having lots of fun. School is good because you get excited about all the new experiences you gain at Secondary School

Cydney, Year 9

When I joined the school two years ago I was really nervous, but I didn’t need to be. You might think it is a big step, and it is, but it is one of the best steps you will ever take.  The best part of school is learning and enjoying it.   There is always something new to do here and I know that the teachers care about me as an individual.
