Student Services

At Herne Bay High School we believe in the development of the whole child. Therefore alongside our continual drive to improve the standards of learning and teaching within our school, we also remain fully committed to developing our students into well-rounded, happy and engaged young people.

Parents and carers are asked at parents' evenings to feedback on their opinions on issues pertaining to learning and well-being using the questions Ofsted ask parents. Over the past few years the school has received feedback from over 1000 parents/carers - please see below for the results of this feedback:

When Ofsted visited us in January 2018 they carried out an analysis of parents/carers’ views that mirrored our own, notably that 94% of parents/carers stated that their chid is happy at school. 98% of parents/carers stated that their child feels safe at school.

Our Student Services Department consists of a large group of highly experienced and committed professionals that work tirelessly to support our young people, in order that they are happy, healthy, willing and able to reap the benefits if what is one of the most successful and popular schools in Kent.
