Hopwood Hall School’s first Christmas

Welcome to Hopwood Hall School, a new Independent School for secondary aged pupils who are school-phobic mainly due to extreme anxiety.

“Teaching is not about the filling of a pail, but rather, the lighting of a fire.” William Yeats

Vision

Hopwood’s vision is formulated around the questions: “How can we help our pupils to understand themselves?” and “How can we best enable our pupils to achieve their academic potential at this stage of their lives?”
