The following six characteristics form the core of what we call The HGS Identity – the ‘golden thread’ which binds together all pupils who walk through our gates. At Huddersfield Grammar School, we want each pupil to:
We want everything they do at school to inspire our pupils, both within and beyond the classroom. It is our aim for them to leave school as interesting people with a thirst for knowledge.
Our students will be valued and develop as an individual, with all children encouraged daily to be a first-rate version of themselves, not a second-rate version of someone else.
Adopt a resilient approach to their academic work and their extra-curricular pursuits, forming the inner steel that will serve them well on the exciting and life-long journey of learning that lies ahead.
Combine daily acts of kindness with the firm belief that – whatever our age – we can make a difference, locally and globally, right now.
We encourage our pupils to be self-aware by learning to recognise their strengths and actively working on areas where they might need more support.
We want our pupils to develop genuine self-belief, as those who ‘believe they can’ will be the leaders and game-changers of the future.
