Does anyone know what it's actually like? It's likely to be our closest senior school, & I'm wondering if we need to move to Hitchin...?!

Quite a few Letchworth girls I know got into Hitchin Girls from Letchworth last year so it's worth checking catchment from where you live if you have a girl - don't know about other Hitchin schools
I don't think Highfield is brilliant..... I live very close and am basing this mainly on the total gormlessness I see from the pupils and the swearing but that may be every secondary school out there
I know 2 teachers at Highfield and they haven't sent their kids there

The 'parent view' portal mentions over strictness.... which doesn't really chime with the gormless students?! Maybe the teachers need to be incredibly strict to keep them on their toes..?

Re: Hitchin boys / girls - I understand they're probably changing the admission rules soon to accommodate less children from Letchworth and more students from Hitchin...
