Welcome to Hanson School


We are pleased to welcome you to our website in which we will aim to share with you the ethos and vision which underpin our provision of exciting and innovative educational and social opportunities for all our young people.  

The new Hanson School building on the Sutton Avenue site, is the third building in over 100 years to carry the proud Hanson Name (the first Hanson School opened on Byron Street in 1897).

The strong provision we already have in place is being enhanced by the currently proceeding conversion of the school to an Academy under the sponsorship of School Partnership Trust: Academies (SPTA).  Read More...
