A sense of community plays an important role in any school, and especially in one with such a long and rich tradition as Hutchins.

Diverse and engaging activities are undertaken by the Hutchins community throughout the year. The Hutchins community includes the Parents' Association, a strong Old Boy network and the Hutchins Foundation. In addition there are many groups such as the Supporters of Rowing and Friends of Music which all work with a common aim - to make Hutchins a great school.
