Listen to what our students have to say

I'm Emma, the  Head Girl.  When I came to HRS I was the only student from my primary school to come here.  I was nervous, but I soon made plenty of friends.  Here at HRS the teachers are supportive and always helpful, they will work alongside you in order for you to reach your full potential.  At HRS there are also many extra-curricular activities to take part in, as well as a wide variety of subjects, something for everyone to enjoy!

I'm Oscar and I'm the Head Boy.  When I joined the school three years ago, I wasn't confident academically or socially.  I thought it would be a big step up, but I received lots of help from kind, supportive teachers and older students at this school.  The best thing about the school is they offer plenty of careers advice and many opportunities.  This lead to me applying and being successful in my application for Head Boy.
