Hugh Christie is a very exciting place to be! Since the College was awarded Technology Specialist Status in 1994 well over a million pounds has been invested in resources resulting in the use of the latest technologies and teaching methods available to all our students. Our examination results continue to improve year on year and we have also earned the reputation as a “leading edge college” both nationally and internationally.
In our OfSTED inspection of 2009, we have maintained our overall status as a ‘good’ school. The sixth form provision is now among the best in Kent.
In April 2010, Hugh Christie formed a partnership (Tonbridge Federation) with Long Mead Community Primary School. This means that the governing body and Federation Principal oversee both schools. The purpose of this federation is to enable both schools to work together more strategically on shared objectives and to develop community partnerships that will benefit children and their families.
Our vision for the college is summarised in the following statement;
Hugh Christie Technology College is a centre of excellence. The learning experience is engaging, relevant and personalised.
We encourage a culture of innovation and change. We are at the forefront in developing the use of information technology as a tool for learning. Each student has the opportunity to achieve their personal highest academic performance.
We are committed to work with our local community to widen the opportunities for everyone in the locality and beyond. We believe in creating an environment that is friendly, clean and safe. We aim to develop strong partnerships with other learning providers to drive forward our programme of improvement and change.
I hope this section of the website provides you with all the important information about the college. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions about your child’s education.
