The Hayes Way

Hayes School’s vision is to have uncompromising aspirations for every individual and to be an exceptional and inspirational community of lifelong learners.

The Governors and Staff recognise that:

  • Global issues are an important part of the lives of our students living in a world where economies are increasingly interdependent and global communication is a daily reality. Our students have access to the internet, increased opportunity to travel and watch news stories from around the world. Global knowledge and experience is a vital part of each person’s development
  • The Global dimension should be reflected in the attitudes and values of our students, the ethos of the school, the Programmes of Study and Key Skills.

These aims will be achieved through our international work in all curriculum areas, extra curricular activities and partner projects with other countries.



At Hayes, students are expected to follow 'The Hayes Way' in everything they do inside and outside of school. Students complete a comprehensive programme of ACTIVE study in tutor groups each fortnight where themes of social, moral, cultural and spiritual development are explored.




Hayes is committed to working with other schools internationally to share good practice and provide opportunities for colleagues and students to learn about other cultures. This has led to us being consistently accredited with the British Council International Award.

The school has international links with a number of schools including:

  1. The Ivy League Academy (India)
  2. Hillgrove School (Singapore)
  3. Yucai School (China)
  4. Pabna Collectorate Public School and College (Bangladesh).
  5. Partners within the Dutch Bilingual Project (Holland).
  6. Ibadan International School (Nigeria).

We have student exchanges and colleagues from Hayes have benefited from opportunities to visit partner schools to share good teaching and learning practice. 

If you are a school outside the UK looking to form a partnership, we would love to hear from you!
