Life at Hednesford Valley High

Welcome from our Headteacher

Mr Stephen Stokes welcomes you to Hednesford Valley High School website.

Hednesford Valley High is a special school for students aged 11 to 19.  The students are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities and learn to work together in a secure and safe environment.  Visitors to the school always comment on how polite and welcoming the students are.  The students are proud of their school and will do tours explaining the work they do in every room.  The students have different Special Educational Needs and are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure they are happy and confident and learn to become as independent as possible to achieve their full potential.

The staff work hard to ensure our engaging curriculum meets the needs of all students by working with a child centred approach.  The school has a dedicated team of staff that work together to reach high standards in everything we do and ensure student learning is supported effectively by working in specific SEN teams.  Their work has been recognised by the achievement of the ASD and Dyslexia awards. 

Staff work in partnership with parents/carers to enable students to follow personalised learning pathways through the school to achieve success in accredited courses.

The students gain skills, knowledge and confidence by working in the local environment through Forest Schools, a residential visit in year 7 and numerous visits to events in the local community.  Vocational learning takes place in the school, at the Wolverhampton Vocational Training Centre in Key Stage 4 and in the community.

Students become active members of the community by joining their mainstream peers as Sixth Form students sharing the open facilities at Cannock Chase High School.  Students become independent citizens by accessing work experience in the local and wider community.

I hope this website will give you as much information as possible about our school that you need.  If you would like further information or to arrange a visit please contact the school.
