Teach your specialist subject to a high level
At an HMC independent school you can focus on teaching the specialist subject you love to a high level.
Pupils in HMC schools embrace learning and their positive behaviour and application are reflected in outstanding exam results. Nearly two-thirds of GCSE entries at HMC schools were awarded an A/7 or higher – more than three times the national average. At A level, close to half of entries last year received either A* or an A – almost double the national average. Some HMC schools offer other distinctive qualifications including the International Baccalaureate, the Pre-U and a number of vocational courses.
A total of 95% of pupils in HMC schools go on to higher education, with a quarter of these going on to UK top ten universities.
In HMC schools, teachers thrive on working in a liberated environment where they have the flexibility to use programmes of study to devise their own distinctive lesson plans.
There’s a broad range of subjects in HMC schools, including the opportunity to teach many subjects to small classes where demand is not as high as for other subjects e.g. classics and a range of additional modern foreign languages.
