The Hazeley School


No written information can adequately convey the vibrancy of a school like Hazeley.

We hold an Open Evening in November every year when our pupils and staff will be proud to show you their work.

We are also happy to arrange visits at other times of the year.

Please drop in to speak to our receptionist in person or telephone on 01908 555620.


At The Hazeley School we are certain that pupils work at their best an environment that is secure, caring and orderly and also stimulating and challenging, so that they are well prepared to meet the demands of adult life. We combine emphasis on traditional values such as responsibility, honesty, and respect for learning, with care for the individual. We have established an ethos in which all members of our community are valued and respected.

We have high expectations of all our pupils in every aspect of school life. We know that all pupils have potential to be discovered and developed and that it is our task as a learning community to help them make full use of their talents and abilities. The school is successful in many areas and some of these have been accredited by external bodies such as Investors for People, Sportsmark, Artsmark, Healthy Schools Award and International School Award. Ofsted judged the school to be outstanding and commented "this is an outstanding school in which pupils thrive and develop a love of learning."

We are confident you will find that the Hazeley School is a welcoming school where pupils work happily and well in an orderly, caring and purposeful environment.

The planned assembly programme gives pupils and staff the chance to consider a range of spiritual and moral questions. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from assemblies and alternative arrangements for the child’s supervision will be agreed with the Headteacher.


Learning is the focus of all we do at The Hazeley School.


The aim at Key Stage 3 is to give pupils a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares them fully for a more individualised programme in Key Stages 4 and 5. There are 30 taught periods per week.

Typically subjects are allocated the following number of periods:

  • English – 4
  • Maths – 4
  • Science – 4
  • Design/Technology – 2
  • ICT – 1
  • PE – 2
  • History – 2
  • Geography – 2
  • Philosophy and Ethics – 1
  • Art and Design – 2
  • Music – 1
  • Drama – 1
  • Modern Foreign Languages - 3
  • Citizenship /PSHE/Learning to Learn - 1

Pupils are put into ability sets during their first term with us for English, Maths, Science and Modern Foreign Languages. These sets are not fixed and pupils can be moved into different sets depending on progress made.

Homework, which we call EXL (extended learning), forms a vital element in the delivery of each subject. It also promotes the skills of independent learning and research. Each pupil is given a planner to record homework tasks and parents and pupils are given a homework timetable at the beginning of the school year. Parents are asked to check that the homework is being completed and will sign the planner as confirmation of this. Philosophy and Ethics includes the study of the major world religions and looks at their similarities and differences. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from this lesson. In this case an alternative programme of study and supervision will be agreed with the Headteacher.


At Key Stage 4 pupils follow a core curriculum of English, Maths, Science and Humanities. In addition there are a range of options including Vocational courses such as Logistics, Hospitality, BTEC PE and extra English to choose from depending on the interests and abilities of the pupils. More detailed information about these courses is discussed with pupils and parents during Year 9.

Core Subjects

  • English – 4
  • Science – 5
  • Humanities –5. (2 Humanities are studied)
  • Maths – 4

Where can I put my stuff?
There are locker areas in the school to allow pupils to safely store their equipment between lessons. These are provided to all pupils – you just need to provide a lock.

Can I bring my bike to school?
Yes. There are cycle routes into school and there are areas to store your bike. It is vital that the cycle is locked securely.

What can we do at lunchtime?
You can go to the dining hall for lunch, work in the Learning Centre or take part in the clubs and activities that take place.

Where do we get lunch?
We are committed to providing healthy food. Our caterers do not serve chocolate, nuts, fizzy drinks or high-fat crisps. Lunch is cooked on site in the dining hall. You could alternatively bring a packed lunch if you prefer.

Will the building work be disruptive?
The building work is in planned phases. Each phase of the school can operate independently so that building will not disturb the education of the pupils. In addition areas where work is being carried out will not be accessible to pupils.

Will there be lots of homework?
There will be a planned homework timetable and a planner to record the homework as it is set. This will help the pupils to organise their studies so that the homework that is set can be completed in a reasonable amount
of time. Homework could be a written task, a piece of learning or an extended project. It is a vital part of learning and must be done.
In years 7 and 8 there will be between 45 to 90 minutes of homework per day. In year 9 this increases to between 60 and 120 minutes. At Key Stage 4 there will be up to 2.5 hours per night.
We expect all who come to The Hazeley School to be committed to completing the significant amount of homework we set.

How can I contact the Headteacher?
By telephone or e-mail using the school’s contact details. There is also the opportunity to speak to the Head or a senior member of staff via the weekly drop in sessions.

What will we do in PE?
There are facilities for individual activities such as tennis and badminton and also for traditional team games such as hockey, netball, cricket, football and rugby. All pupils are expected to take an active part in PE to help establish a positive attitude to health and fitness.

What languages are on offer?
French is offered in years 7 and 8. A second language is offered in Year 9 (either German or Spanish).
Year 7 pupils also study Latin for a year.
French, German and Spanish are all offered at GCSE.

Will you be a Specialist School?
We are affiliated to the Specialist Schools Trust and plans are well developed to become a Specialist College. As a centre of excellence we will enhance our pupils’ critical thinking skills and prepare our pupils for a successful life in the 21st Century.


The Hazeley School has its own distinctive uniform. There are good reasons for this, the most important being that a uniform helps to create a sense of community and establish a working environment. In a large school it is also of considerable benefit for security reasons that pupils should wear school uniform.  A school uniform also removes distraction which may be caused by an individual’s style of dress, and allows pupils to concentrate on learning. We have kept our uniform smart but simple. Unless otherwise stated, all items of uniform may be worn by both boys and girls. Jeans, cords, trainers, polo shirts and caps are not part of the uniform. Shirts and blouses should be tucked in and ties knotted and worn in a traditional manner. Skirts must be worn to the knee.

Pupils are encouraged not to bring valuables of any type into school. This includes items of jewellery and mobile telephones.

If mobile phones are brought to school they must be turned off and kept out of sight during the school day. Camera phones and similar video recording devices are not permitted.

A watch and one pair of stud earrings are allowed. Rings, large earrings, necklaces and nose studs are not appropriate in school.

Purchasing of school uniform

All items of School uniform and PE uniform will be available from John Lewis, Milton Keynes although equivalent alternatives will be acceptable.

The school expects parents to ensure that pupils attend school regularly and in proper school uniform  The school uniform has been devised so as to be affordable and reasonable.  Consequently the Governors’ decision is that the school will not provide financial assistance for uniform provision.

Consequences of not wearing correct uniform
If it is not possible for a pupil to wear an item of school uniform, the pupil will be internally excluded by the Head of Hall or Tutor or sent home to get the correct items. There are no exceptions. Details will be recorded in the pupil’s school diary and a letter sent home advising the parent/carer of the correct school uniform. Pupils wearing too much jewellery, hats, using mobile phones in class etc will have the item(s) confiscated.
