Information about the school

Hadlow Rural Community School (HRCS) opened in September 2013 and offers a unique educational opportunity to students in Hadlow itself and across the wider local area. It is situated on the 630-acre campus of Hadlow College.

Hadlow Rural Community School is a popular, oversubscribed School with a current roll just under 400 students. The School has recently relocated to a £7million new build and has developed a strong reputation both locally and beyond for enabling its young people to excel and flourish; providing an exciting, vibrant and dynamic experience in academic and land based vocational studies. The school is heavily oversubscribed and has, for the last four years, achieved the highest percentage of first preferences for Year 7 places, for non-selective schools, across Kent.

The school ethos centres on providing an educational experience suited to our students and the local community and whilst academic progress is of the highest importance to us, this is equally matched by our promotion of vocational and enrichment opportunities, ensuring the development of every child as a whole. This has been strongly supported through our most recent Ofsted inspection, February 2019 in which the school received its second ‘Good’ rating
