Working, reading and learning together
HDHS is the proud learning environment of hard-working students and staff committed to serving the community of Harwich and Dovercourt.
As a part of the Sigma Trust family of schools, at Harwich & Dovercourt High School we strongly believe that no child will be left behind. It is our shared vision that every student leaves us having worked, read and learned together and having taken every opportunity offered to be successful in their chosen pathway for life. Opportunity affords choice. Choice affords a fulfilling adult life. It is our mission to maximise the potential for every student with the HDHS 7 year journey and empower them to reach their goals, whatever their starting points.
Every student is welcomed and unapologetically challenged to achieve their full potential and be the best possible version of themselves.
Strong, positive working relationships with parents, carers and other stakeholders are at the heart of our commitment to success of the young people, who will go on to lead our community.
I welcome your encouragement, support and belief as together we build real opportunities for our students’ futures.
