National Support School Recipient National leaders of education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers who, together with the staff in their schools (designated national support schools (NSS), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.

HHELC has received support from a local NLE / NSS.

NHS / CAMHS Partner HHELC works closely with a range of child and adolescent mental health services to ensure we best meet the needs of pupils and students who have difficulties with their emotional or behavioural well being. These can be from the statutory, voluntary and school based sector who provide support, expertise and training as required.
