Hazelwood Integrated College is a vibrant learning community which places quality education and pupil well-being at the heart of all activities. Our aim is for all of our students to achieve their potential and to prepare them to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
At the heart of our school is our students. Our curriculum and extensive range of extra-curricular activities give every student the opportunity to flourish, to develop existing talents and to discover new ones. We are committed to excellence and have an unrelenting determination for everyone to succeed. We also encourage and expect all of our pupils to become independent learners and to develop their leadership skills, so they can fully participate in our rich extra-curricular programme. This gives them a sense of belonging and a pride in our school and in themselves which helps them fully realise their potential.
Developing excellent attitudes to learning in its widest sense and fostering respect, courtesy and consideration, and friendship, are central to our ethos and our school community. We also have excellent partnerships with parents and our local community and value their contributions.
I am privileged to be leading such a progressive and forward thinking school.
“My time at Hazelwood was a happy and pleasant one. The teachers and other staff each played a part in helping me to reach my career goals through life skills, through teaching and encouragement. As a student from a lower class background - I worried about never getting into university - but at Hazelwood, no door was ever closed to me and teachers were happy to help you where they could. Today I can stand and say I proudly achieved my goals and now work as a GIS Consultant at Land and Property Services. And that none of it would have been possible without the foundations of education I received at Hazelwood. - (Started in the year 2003)”
