Aims and Ethos


At Hipperholme Grammar we strive for academic excellence yet see education as wider than the curriculum. The school therefore aims to develop and promote positive relationships and provide high quality teaching to enable pupils to:

  • develop as independent, confident and successful learners
  • encourage and develop creativity
  • develop an understanding of the relative values of competition and cooperation
  • provide a safe, secure and caring environment
  • provide opportunities for individuals to express feelings and opinions freely
  • foster the ability to listen to and respect the views of others
  • promote understanding of social and environmental issues in both our immediate community and around the world.
