Destinations Of Our Pupils
It is important that we monitor the destinations of our Pupils when they leave Hailey Hall School.
This helps to ensure that the support and education that we provide them with in relation to their future careers is effective and valuable.
Alumni story of a prior Hailey Hall pupil – Below is a personal account of how a pupil was supported at Hailey Hall and then went on to become an employee of the school.
“I started at Hailey Hall in year 7. I was used to this type of school as I previously went to Larwood primary school. When I first started I found talking about my struggles the hardest. I would run around a lot, try to avoid lessons and do anything I could to get out of being in class. (Except for PE!!)
Looking back at my time as a student, there are a few things that I wish I had done differently, most of all how seriously I took my exams in year 11. I was doing well academically and I let it get to my head excessively, this resulted in me having a huge chip on my shoulder when exam season came around. I would often spend enrichments out on the field playing football rather than putting in the extra work with some subjects that I was advised on doing. I am still very proud of my results and achievements; however, I feel that I definitely could have done better.
During my time at Hailey Hall I learnt to regulate my own behaviour. With the support from staff I learnt about myself and what I wanted to do with my life. I started thinking about what I wanted in the future. I decided to go to sixth form at Turnford School to study sport – specifically football. I then went on to college for a year to study mechanics and go on to a welding apprenticeship. However, during this year, I realised that education was the route I wanted to focus myself on for my career. I specifically wanted to work at Hailey Hall, as for me, this was the turnaround point in my life and I wanted to get to experience being a part of the support that makes a difference to the lives of pupils like I once was.
I had to wait until I was 21 as I was an ex pupil, as soon as I could, I applied for the role of a teaching assistant and was successful. I am incredibly proud to be a part of the Hailey Hall staffing team and look forwards to my professional development here.”
