To ignite and nurture a lifelong passion for science, achieving excellence and harbouring curiosity of the world around us.
At Hawkley Hall High School our students study a carefully sequenced curriculum that develops both substantive and disciplinary knowledge. Our intention is for students to enjoy and experience a broad, varied and challenging curriculum that fosters curiosity and promotes an awareness of the importance of science in the world today, and in the future.
