About Hylands School
Hylands School. Where Teachers love Teaching.
We are part of TKAT, a charitable trust that is inspiring learners and changing lives across 45 schools in the South and East of England.
In all our schools, we love teaching. Simple. We love it when students "get it". When they have that penny drop moment after struggling and thinking hard. We love class discussions, we love silent contemplation and study, we also love students working together.
At Hylands we love developing our teaching. We understand that great teaching is the reason why students at Hylands are great learners. Nothing trumps great pedagogy.This is why we send students home early on a Tuesday and spend two hours each week talking, collaborating and planning our teaching, and then we all leave before 5pm. As one of 14 secondary schools in TKAT, the trust also offers excellent CPD opportunities, a wide range of support, and a number of events where you can meet and engage with colleagues from other schools.
