Hutchesons’ is proud of its academic high standards and our experienced teachers support pupils to ensure they reach their full potential in whichever area of academic study their talents and interests lie.

Our exam results are regularly among the best in the country but we don’t just celebrate the ‘straight A’ pupils. We are equally proud of the pupils who have worked extremely hard to secure the best set of results for them.
