To inspire confident learners who will thrive in a changing world…
In 2022 Huntington will be a school where we have students making exceptional progress in their studies way beyond what even they themselves think they are capable of making, where we can be as sure as we ever can be that every student sets off into the world with the personal skills and aptitudes to thrive and a set of examination results of which they can be proud.
