About Us
Hadlow Rural Community School

Based in the grounds of the College, Hadlow Rural Community School offers a unique secondary educational experience for pupils aged between 11 and 16. With its “rural ethos” this brand new free school was conceived from an original idea to develop exciting new educational opportunities for young people to learn in a land-based environment.

Opening in September 2013, Hadlow Rural Community School is a unique school, with a unique ethos and curriculum. Pupils have opportunities very different to those in other schools, through a commitment and vision to integrate land-based education into all areas of the school.

Hadlow Rural Community School's innovative curriculum enables pupils of all ages to experience hands-on work with animals, growing food and tending plants. In doing this they achieve vital skills in teamwork, discipline, respect and responsibility, as well as working towards a range of practical, meaningful and worthwhile vocational qualifications.  This approach will develop skills, recognise the value of practical qualifications and increase self-esteem and engagement with education.  Employability and entrepreneurship are key features in the ethos of the school.

Alongside this though, Hadlow Rural Community School aims to be a centre of academic excellence – all pupils study a full suite of GCSE subjects including those expected in the English Baccalaureate – English, Maths, Science, Geography and Languages.
