From the Hitchin Boys' School
Hitchin Boys’ School operates as an Academy Trust, providing a comprehensive and traditional single-sex school education which is both highly academic and rooted strongly in its community. Students consistently achieve at the very highest level and each year the percentage of students gaining five or more A*- C grade passes at GCSE including English and Maths is significantly above the national average. Most students go on to higher education including some of the most prestigious universities in the country. Our belief is that all students can achieve excellence with the right support and challenge. The School prides itself on helping young people to achieve whatever their ability, and we celebrate the successes of students in a great variety of activities - sport, music, drama, community and charity work, as well as in the classroom.

Hitchin Boys' School was inspected by OFSTED in January 2016 and was graded as an outstanding school, retaining this accreditation in the subsequent 2021 inspection. The most recent report notes that “The headteacher and his team have maintained an outstanding school. Their vision for the school is shared widely among all staff. There is a passion to develop pupils both academically and as well-rounded British citizens.” Inspectors also said “Pupils enjoy their time at school. They care about each other and get on well with staff and with their peers. Pupils are polite and respectful. They bring to life the Hitchin Boys’ School values of respect, teamwork and kindness.

We are committed to our system of pastoral care which ensures that every student is taken care of as an individual.We believe that parents, governors and our wider community have a vital role to play in helping ensure that the students grow and develop in a suitably supportive and challenging environment.Our aim is to ensure that students leave the school equipped with the best possible academic outcomes and are resilient, resourceful and reflective individuals capable of realising their potential through lifelong learning and becoming an active member of society.
