EXPECTATIONS - THE HAYES WAY

“Being at Hayes School for five years, the transition from KS4 to KS5 has been especially smooth. Of course there is the prospect of meeting new people and sadly saying goodbye to old friends but I can safely say choosing Hayes has been an excellent decision for me. I feel extremely comfortable and the staff are kind and always eager to improve the quality of a students learning. I am certain that I will be stretched to achieve the best of my abilities. Hayes has helped to support and prepare me for my future endeavours” A Year 13 Student
