Welcome to Hardwick Middle School Sports College.

In the construction of this site we have tried to give you a flavour of our school as well as provide as much useful information as possible

Welcome Letter

On behalf of the Governors, Staff and Students we are pleased to present the Hardwick Middle School Sports College website. We hope that, as well as informing you about our aims, values, expectations and facilities, you find it informative, useful and interesting.

At Hardwick we aim to give every youngster, of whatever aptitude or interest, the opportunity to be successful, and to grow and develop into outstanding citizens.

Our designation as a Specialist Sports College allows us to harness the motivated and successful spirit displayed on the sports field, and use it across all aspects of learning in school. We place an emphasis on supporting youngsters to take responsibility for their learning and to take up the leadership of all areas of school life. We like to feel that we encourage our students to be forward looking whilst still maintaining the traditional values of respect, courtesy, honesty, and endeavour.

The strong and formalised collaborative that we enjoy with King Edward VI School allows us to provide aspirational experiences for our students and demonstrates our commitment to continuing our interest in our students once they leave the school.

We hope that you will want to find out what prompted Ofsted to categorise our school as 'good', and then want to join with us in developing Hardwick into an 'outstanding' school. The best way to do this is by visiting the school; this you are warmly invited to do.

We look forward to meeting you and working in partnership with you in the future.
