Hungerhill is a highly successful oversubscribed secondary school in Edenthorpe, Doncaster. We were rated Outstanding in October 2012, by Ofsted and we were designated as a National Teaching School in August 2015. We are also the Secondary Lead for Doncaster Research School.

Our students are at the heart of everything we do to ensure they have the support and guidance they need to reach their full academic and personal potential. We have high expectations and strive for our students to be successful learners and gain the knowledge, skills and attributes to flourish in the world of work.

Our core values of respect, honesty, resilience, excellence and care are embedded at every level throughout the school.

The curriculum we offer is aspirational and designed to challenge, so that every child achieves their full potential. We build on learning experiences from primary school, working towards the mastery of skills, knowledge and understanding that prepares students for their examination courses. We aim to foster a love of learning, stimulate curiosity, develop creativity and enthuse and engage students to be lifelong learners. We offer an extensive range of enrichment experiences to students in order to develop self-esteem, confidence, self-expression, creativity and teamwork skills.

We are fortunate to have a caring, skilled and dedicated set of teachers, support staff and governors at Hungerhill, who believe that there is no limit to learning or ceiling on achievement as we seek the best outcomes for students. Pastoral care and inclusion are of exceptional quality, as we put the needs of individual students at the centre of everything we do.

As a Teaching and Research School we lead on a number of important teaching and learning initiatives which are founded on well-researched evidence-based practice including the development of a Maths Mastery Curriculum as well as a Reciprocal Reading Programme which develops both language and communication.
