High Tunstall College of Science is a school that serves the community of North West of Hartlepool and its surrounding villages. We are a truly inclusive college and the governors and staff of HTCS strive every day to ensure that the very best education is provided for all.
At the heart of our ethos is the belief that it is our duty to inspire and support students, so that they achieve the very best that they can. This ambition has led to a dramatic improvement in the quality of teaching and learning across the college over the past 18 months. Every child has the right to be taught by teachers that are good and outstanding and to achieve this we provide comprehensive professional learning and development that is bespoke to the needs of individuals within the staff. The results of good teaching can be seen in all aspects of school life and therefore our attendance, achievement and behaviour have all improved.
Inspirational teaching is matched by the range of extra-curricular opportunities that are available for our students. These opportunities range from trips to New York to Top of the Bench Chemistry visits at the University of Teesside. These experiences are critical for the development of the students in our care and we try to ensure that all access as many opportunities as possible.
Inspiring teaching and opportunities can only be effective when placed within the context of a supportive curriculum and we pride ourselves on the breadth, challenge and quality of our offer. We offer a wide range of qualifications that prepare students for life post 16 whether they intend to follow an academic or vocational route. We are also confident that our KS4 curriculum will meet the demands of the new rigour in imminent changes to examinations and performance tables.
Our support goes beyond the curriculum and encompasses a wide range of systems and networks to help students navigate their way through college and adolescence. We are proud of the care and guidance that we provide for our most vulnerable students, but equally proud of the opportunities that we provide for our most able. This support, alongside quality teaching is helping us to close the gaps that are such an issue nationwide.
The High Tunstall community is based upon the principle that as a group of individuals we inspire each other and support each other, so that we all achieve. This principle underpins daily routines and practice, which has led to a community that is mutually respectful, offering an equal balance of support and challenge that leads to success for all.
