About Us


Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We think you will see for yourself that these are exciting times here at The Hinckley School.

Originally established as Hinckley Grammar School nearly 400 years ago, our school is now a modern and aspirational learning community but retains the same commitment to placing our students first and providing them with the highest quality education. Our transition from Hinckley Academy to The Hinckley School in August 2022 cemented our future vision.

Interim CEO The Futures Trust

Our partnership with the highly regarded multi academy trust, The Futures Trust, means that The Hinckley School is now on a journey to becoming an exceptional state school. We have introduced The Bridge, a successful mini school just for our new Year 7 students which provides an unrivalled transition experience from Primary to Secondary School, The Gateway; our bespoke Year 8 offer, high quality pastoral care and excellent academic provision. As our students progress to GCSE and beyond, they will experience high expectations and inspirational teaching, a range of enriching activities beyond the classroom and a learning environment which fosters self-discipline and aspiration.

After GCSE, we offer our students the chance to progress onto our own, highly successful sixth form. Year after year our sixth form students achieve outstanding results at A level and secure places at Britain’s top universities. With a strong reputation for supporting students to secure places at Oxford and Cambridge and a high proportion of students accepting places at Russell Group Universities annually - we are proud to support our students as they achieve at the highest levels.

Furthermore, our partnership with The Futures Trust brings with it significant investment into our school buildings and facilities, enabling us to create a much improved and truly outstanding learning environment for all.

Working together with The Futures Trust, The Hinckley School is building brighter futures for its students, its staff and the community of Hinckley.

We look forward to welcoming you.
