Values and Ethos


At the Hawkswood Group, we seek 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. We strive for pupils to become articulate, numerate and literate individuals with the power to soar. In providing safe and stimulating learning environments, multiple opportunities and pathways to employability and the opportunity for growth and personal development, our aim is to ensure an inclusive approach that values every pupil 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. Our staff, students and parents are committed to deliver an outstanding and inclusive learning community. The Hawkswood Group aspires to equip pupils not only with impressive qualifications, but with a range of experiences and opportunities to maximise their skills and talents in a safe, positive and stimulating environment. We aim for holistic success!We develop self-understanding and awareness, positive relationships, empathy and morality, pupils have the opportunity to become active citizens and role models for future aspirations of our nation. They are our ambassadors for inclusion, viewing learning as a lifelong experience; and challenge as the pathway to success.


We are passionate about education and providing the opportunity for every pupil to develop exceptional knowledge, skills and understanding; while developing drive, ambition, confidence and belief. Consequently, each provision’s curriculum is student-centred and offers an individualised approach to education that inspires creativity in all aspects of learning and is specifically focused on supporting pupils in overcoming the challenges. We are determined to enable success, to provide a wide range of exciting routes to further education and employment and to utilise resources efficiently and effectively so that our pupils develop into exciting and aspirational role models and leaders of the future.
