Course handbooks

Hutchins offers a vast range of learning opportunities for boys. The course handbooks below are designed to help you and your son make informed choices about their education and future pathways. In order to make the most of these opportunities ask your son to read the information carefully, discuss choices with you and their teachers, and seek clarification if they have any questions. Every effort will be made to accommodate your son’s choices, however please be aware that the running of a subject is dependent upon the number of students who enrol and the availability of staff to teach that subject. In some instances, it may be necessary to negotiate an alternative.
