About Hitchin Boys' School

Hitchin Boys’ School is a high achieving, all-ability, single sex school with over 1,200 pupils (aged 11-18) on roll and a mixed sixth form, which forms part of the highly successful Hitchin Schools’ consortium.

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 boys 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 boys 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 boys 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 our young boys become well-rounded, successful young men.

Hitchin Boys’ School was judged Outstanding by Ofsted in January 2016. We believe that the inspectors accurately identified our strength as a school when they said: “The academy’s motto, ‘striving for excellence’, is reflected strongly in all aspects of school life. Pupils thrive because personal development and academic excellence are promoted equally well.” OFSTED 2016. The full report is on the school website (https://www.hbs.herts.sch.uk).
