Welcome to Herne Bay High School website. We are committed to ensuring that our students, parents and carers and the local community are kept fully informed of our latest news, upcoming events, facilities and our achievements. We hope that you find the information contained on our website both useful and interesting.
Herne Bay High School is a hugely popular and oversubscribed school that prides itself on its culture of high expectations and values. We are passionate about ensuring every child, no matter what their background, is given the opportunity to reach their full academic potential whilst supporting them to develop as mature, confident and rounded individuals ready to flourish in a rapidly developing world.
Students at Herne Bay High School are successful and this is demonstrated by their excellent examination results, their renowned involvement in a wide range of sporting and creative performance and by the number who are now going on to further and higher education.
Throughout their time at Herne Bay High School the students are provided with quality advice, support and guidance to help them progress and grow academically, personally and vocationally. We all recognise and celebrate diversity and understand that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is inappropriate for the unique individuals we serve. The high standards set by our enthusiastic staff, not only in their subject teaching but as members of a well ordered, caring community are what brings about the true success of the school.
Part of our school's aims sums up what we are about and states: “Herne Bay High School strives for excellence and high-quality provision in all aspects of the curriculum, student learning, progress and development. Young people need to complete their period of schooling with high self-esteem, confidence, wider horizons and a range of appropriate qualifications, skills and personal attributes”.
Once again a warm welcome and I look forward to working with you over the coming years.
Mr J Boyes
