We are proud of our school’s reputation in our local, and wider, community. We provide a high quality, comprehensive educational experience for all of our students and ensure that each individual’s academic potential is fulfilled. We value their individuality and the contribution they make to the community. Our students are an asset and are at the heart of everything that we do.
Hedingham is a very caring, supportive and ordered environment that allows us to have high expectations of achievement and excellence. Our students are encouraged to work hard, study independently and to take pride in their achievements and the values of their school.
We aim to broaden the horizons of our students and to personalise their learning. We are committed to utilising the latest technologies and learning and teaching strategies so that our students are skilled and confident citizens prepared for the opportunities and challenge of an increasingly complex world.
Hedingham School was delighted to learn that Year 10 student Jonathan Banks-Seeney won the North Essex County Final of the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge which was held at Montfitchet School in May. The competition was fierce, with strong representation from many schools in the area, but Jonny won the day with a clever and witty speech about his inherited colour blind condition.
Update: There is some very exciting news concerning our winner Jonathan Banks-Seeney. He has been chosen to compete in the national competition! This is a huge achievement for him considering they only choose 15 out of the 36 finalists! This will take place on the 1st July.
This is the first time that our school has got this far as well as the first time that North Essex has been represented in the national competition in years!
Charity fund raising has always been an important part of Hedingham School, so this year School Council, led by Lizzie Ramsay as Chairperson, decided that they would devote a whole week to raising money for two charities. Their two charities were Stand up to Cancer and our local Parkinson’s group, two very worthy groups which school council felt strongly that they would like to support. They spent the week before half term raising money through Guess the name of the Bear, How many sweets are in the Jar and the week culminated in a non-uniform day for all students and a big cake sale.
