Students are expected to wear the Hopefields uniform proudly.
The Montana Project (Post 16 learners) wear a grey marl hoody and learners in KS3 and 4 wear a grey marl sweatshirt/zip up jumper. These options are available from local supplier Motif8 on tel. 01642 601501.
A white or black T-shirt or polo shirt with no obvious branding is to be worn at all times. The T-shirt can be long or short sleeved and in a fabric of the student's choice.
Students wear their own choice of trousers and footwear. Sliders, sandals, ripped jeans and shorts cut above the knee are not acceptable. The Hopefields curriculum means that your child may come home messy or dirty. As a result, trainers and old/worn trousers are encouraged.
The Hopefields complaint policy is found in our 'essential info' section, located at the bottom of this page, as in the complaint form and bullying form whereby you may report an incident of bullying.
Firstly, please do call us on 01642 205233 and we will aim to deal with your concern immediately.
Lunch is provided for all learners as are snacks and drinks throughout the day such as biscuits, fruit and raw vegetables.

Termly reports are generated and sent to parents three times a year, in late October, February and late May.
Your child's class teacher is always on hand to discuss any concerns outside of these times.
Parents and carers must alert the school office by 9am if their child is not attending that day. Excellent attendance is crucial to improving outcomes for young people and so we appreciate your support in this matter.
Hopefields are guided by statutory law in regards to attendance. If your child's attendance falls below 95% at any given time, further action will be taken to ensure improvement.
Exams are held throughout the year, in May and June, although functional skills examinations may be held at any point in the academic calendar.
Your child will be given an exam timetable to plan revision sessions and independent learning.
