Hitchin Boys’ School (HBS) is a high achieving comprehensive school with a mixed sixth form, which forms part of the highly successful Hitchin Schools’ Consortium.

♦ “Pupils are polite and respectful. They bring to life the Hitchin Boys’ School values of respect,
teamwork and kindness” Ofsted 2021.
♦ A commitment to professional development, with a strong internal and external training offer
♦ A campus that is historic but has also had £5m+ invested in new facilities in recent years
Hitchin itself is a historic market town of approximately 35,000 inhabitants in North Hertfordshire 25 minutes from London by rail line and close to the A1(M) and M1.
The school population is a truly comprehensive ability intake and reflects the demographic of the locality with some 24% of students coming from BAME backgrounds and approximately 9% of all students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our ethos: At Hitchin Boys’ we pride ourselves on offering a warm and friendly environment where our students are encouraged to fulfil their academic potential whilst developing a solid foundation of spiritual, social, moral and cultural awareness. Hitchin Boys’ School helps all students to achieve according to their ability, and we celebrate success in many ways other than exam grades, ensuring that all our students go on to the next step in their lives with a feeling of achievement and self-worth. We are committed to caring for each and every one of our students and helping them become well-rounded, successful young adults.
Following Ofsted's visit to Hitchin Boys' School in September 2021, we were delighted to announce that we have once again received top marks by retaining the judgement of ‘Outstanding’. Inspectors concluded that the curriculum at Hitchin Boys’ is highly ambitious for all students. It is designed very well and ensures pupils not only learn rich subject knowledge, but also grow in their awareness of the world around them. As the report noted, “The school is a calm place for pupils to learn and be themselves.” The full report is available on the school website (https://www.hbs.herts.sch.uk).
