A message from the Executive Principal

Welcome to the Hadley Learning Community

Hadley Learning Community is an all-through school for students from 3 – 16 years of age located in the community of Hadley in central Telford. We have a fantastic 21st Century Learning campus, with outstanding learning facilities, which was purpose built to serve our community. The school opened on the 1st September 2006 and is a £70 million PFI project, in partnership with Interserve (now Mitie FM), which represents a major investment by the Borough of Telford and Wrekin Council. Mite provides all of our facilities management on site and work closely with us every day to maintain a high quality environment for our students, staff and community.

The Structure of HLC

A proud member of the Learning Community Trust, our ‘all through school’ is truly a community for life. The HLC campus consists of a nursery, primary, secondary and special school within a purpose built PFI cutting edge building that includes a leisure centre and community library. The primary phase, for 3-11 year olds is going through a period of planned growth due to its popularity and has been oversubscribed for many years. The secondary phase, for 11-16 year olds, is also progressing through a period of planned growth being hugely over subscribed for a number of years. Both our secondary and primary phases were graded as “GOOD” by Ofsted in our most recent inspection.

We also have a local authority maintained nursery, as part of our primary provision, which has places for 60 children who attend either a morning or afternoon session in a group of 30.

ABC Nursery, which is privately run but located on the campus and works very closely with HLC and The Bridge Special School. Many of our staff’s children attend this nursery and it has an “Outstanding” Ofsted grade.

We are incredibly proud of our facilities and especially how they are used by our community. Our extensive Community facilities, called The Circle is managed by Interserve as part of the PFI agreement. Our school and community have access to extensive sports fields, swimming pool, fitness suite as well as a Public Library, Coffee shop, Theatre and Dance Studio.

We do hope that you find the website easy to use. If you cannot find the information you require or you wish to suggest further improvement then please do not hesitate to send us an email or telephone us.

Our Vision

Our students will walk through the door of their school, where everyone belongs, with pride. Our children, families and wider community will know that we support them as we are rooted in all aspects of local life.  We believe that our school can only be as strong as the community we serve and, as a result, we know that our school is responsible for providing the foundations for our community to thrive.

Our students will appreciate the importance of their education and respect those within their school environment, and beyond, who strive to nurture each and every one to be the best that they can be.  Our children will recognise the importance of being well-mannered and polite individuals who have the confidence and self-assurance to represent themselves, and their school, with credit.

Our staff will instil a drive and ambition that inspires every child to fulfil their potential.  We will create opportunities for lifelong learning ensuring that their time within our classrooms is only the beginning of their journey.  Our students will be equipped with a love of learning that will provide them with the skills to contribute to their world whether it be locally, nationally or globally.   

Our students will be confident in the knowledge that our staff will do everything within their power to ensure they succeed.  Our students will understand that they need to work hard, be resilient and driven in their approach to their studies. We will embrace a ‘can do culture’, which will encourage us to learn from our mistakes and develop an understanding that by supporting each other anything is possible. Our vision is to provide our students with an exciting curriculum and linked opportunities that inspire them to charge at barriers that might stand in their way to fulfilling their goals. We will mould our young peoples’ lives through the arts, sports, STEM and hundreds of other initiatives giving them the tools to flourish.

We will stand by our belief that as a school we can transform a community to understand that education is the most valuable gift anyone can offer you. We will believe in our students and promise to give them the opportunities they dream of. We will shape happy, young people who relish learning in a safe environment.  We will all call our school our own and be proud to be a part of the HLC family.

We will inspire our students to respect themselves, others and the environment in which they belong, allowing them to succeed through the enjoyment of learning.
