Aims, values and Ethos


A key founding principle of the Hawkswood Group is to empower pupils to transform          their lives; to develop the confidence and ambition to make positive contributions to               their community and to enjoy the prospect of exciting and stimulating lifelong success.              

Our aim is to ensure an inclusive approach that values all pupils as equal and                    delivers key support to engender self-belief, emotional resilience and positive choices.


We believe that Waltham Forest and the local community deserve a provision of which it can be proud.

Hawkswood Secondary aspires to equip pupils not only with good qualifications, but with a range of experiences and opportunities to maximise their skills and talents in a safe, positive and stimulating environment. Through developing self-understanding and awareness, positive relationships, empathy and morality, pupils have the opportunity to become positive citizens and role models.


Hawkswood Secondary is passionate about education and providing the opportunity for each pupil to develop exceptional knowledge, skills and understanding while developing drive, ambition, confidence and belief to take on life’s journey.

Consequently, we offer an approach to education that inspires creativity in all aspects of learning and is specifically focused on supporting pupils in overcoming the challenges and obstacles that have proved barriers to learning.
