Hawarden High School is a community, co-educational, comprehensive day school for pupils aged 11-18 years. Currently there are 1,160 pupils on roll, including nearly 200 in the Sixth Form. Whilst teaching is undertaken through the medium of English, we exploit opportunities to develop pupils’ bilingual competence through the use of incidental Welsh and bilingual signage / displays.


The school is located on The Highway in the village of Hawarden and benefits from excellent facilities, including specialist facilities for Design and Technology, Drama, Information and Communication Technology, Media Studies, Music, Physical Education and Science. The school has been adapted to accommodate those with mobility difficulties. Lifts and ramps provide access to all areas of the school.


The school is well resourced, with over 500 computers. Digital projectors are fitted to all teaching rooms and there has been much investment in interactive whiteboard technology in recent years. Having gradually extended our wireless network, further works have been undertaken to provide 100Mb links throughout the school. Our Technical and Vocational Faculty is equipped with industry standard hardware, including laser cutters, a 3D printer and an optical router. Our video conferencing suite is used to enhance pupils’ learning experiences and we access excellent vocational facilities at other educational institutions in the area.


Hawarden High School is committed to developing the maximum potential of all its pupils, both as individuals and as responsible members of the community, and to prepare them for a lifetime of learning:


by maintaining a safe and orderly environment;


through the guidance of a supportive, well qualified staff who value and demonstrate the importance of learning and achievement, teamwork and mutual respect.
