Engaging all children and young people in the best education and learning experience

Welcome to the Hessle Federation Website

Welcome to the Hessle Federation of Schools website. We hope you find it interesting and useful. The Hessle Federation comprises Penshurst Primary School and Hessle High School and Sixth Form College.

The partnership between the two schools aims to deliver continuous outstanding education for the children and families within the Hessle community and surrounding locality. Spread across three sites the Hessle Federation puts itself at the heart of the community, providing adult and family learning, support and facilities for the entire community, in addition to the school day.

Ofsted, the body that inspects and judges the quality of the education provided by all establishments in England and Wales is endeavouring to ensure that parents and perspective parents are easily able to access the information essential to assessing how an individual school matches the need of their child - we agree. Whilst no amount of information can replace a face to face visit, we hope you find the following information useful to you.

To help you find what you are looking for ...

If your child is aged 3-11, you will find the information you need about Penshurst Primary School in the top navigation menu.

If your child is aged between 11-19 you need to be looking at the Hessle High School and Sixth Form in the top navigation menu.

Additional information including PFA meetings, SEND Reports, Pupil Premium and School Accounts, the Headteacher's Report, Minutes of Governors Meetings and School Policies can be found via the Hessle Federation tab.

Please contact a member of the Senior Leadership Team if we can be of any further assistance, or let us know if you found what you are looking for easily, or to comment on how we can improve our website.
