The Hazelwood School Promise
Hazelwood School has a long history of inspiring young people to flourish, dating back to its foundation in 1890. Our location, situated in 25 acres of woodland and fields lying on the edge of Limpsfield Chart, gives us the perfect setting to do this.
We are a co-educational school for children 3 months to 13 years. Our pre-school children are looked after and educated in The Hazelwood School Nursery and Early Years on the Laverock site in the centre of Oxted.
Hazelwood is an Anglican foundation that accepts children of all faiths and none.
We believe every child is special and unique and we aim to maximise the potential of every pupil up to the age of 13.
Our school motto is Spiritu Inspiratus which translates as Lungfuls of Inspiration. It is a strong link with our past (our founders chose the site for the school on account of its lungfuls of fresh air ) and a clear statement of our future intent and promise to all our parents: to inspire children with a love of learning.
At Hazelwood School, we promise
to inspire all pupils with the ambition to achieve their highest academic standards.
to nurture and support all pupils on a journey of self development, providing excellent care and guidance whilst encouraging independence, inner confidence and mutual respect.
to offer the opportunity for all to be inspired with passion and determination and to participate fully in the wider life of the school.
to ensure pupils have an understanding of their place in the local and global community.
to employ staff who love working with children and who demand excellence from themselves and their pupils, acting as dynamic and inspirational role models.
to work in partnership with our parents to ensure that every child's time at Hazelwood is happy and enriching, preparing them fully for the life they choose.
