Hello and welcome from the Chair

From the Chair of the Hope Council

Thank you for your interest in Hope Community School, Southampton.

As Chair of Hope Council, I am privileged to be able to write to you and I hope this website gives you a flavour of the vibrant and supportive environment our School offers. 

Our desire for the pupils of Hope Community School, Southampton is that learning will be an adventure explored both inside and outside of the classroom. We aim for the highest possible standards so that pupils raise their aspirations and realise their potential. We want to provide our pupils with an education that strengthens their character so that they will become ‘Community Entrepreneurs’ - children who are empowered to engage with and change their communities. 

Members of the Hope School Council provide support to the School in a number of ways, using our experience from diverse and varied backgrounds. Our role is to ensure that the School’s performance is evaluated and continuously improves, to help provide the strategic direction for the school, to ensure legal obligations are met and to make sure that the children are given every opportunity to practice and develop their skills to the highest possible level. 

The journey to opening Hope Community School would not have happened without support from the local community.  We look forward to welcoming you onto this exciting adventure. 

Billy Kennedy - Chair of Hope Council
