LGBTQ+ Support

Hello and welcome to our LGBTQ+ support page!

Here at HBS, we are very proud to be able to celebrate and support a diverse community of both staff and students. We are committed to ensuring that anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+ is treated fairly and has the same opportunities and school experience as anyone else.

Those who identify as LGBTQ+ sometimes need some specific support and we are here to help. We as teachers are always here to listen to you respectfully and without judgement.

As well as the activities and support within school, you will find here a lot more information about all things LGBTQ+, for whether you yourself identify as LGBTQ+, or you are looking to support a friend or family member.

Mr Rule is our LGBTQ+ Lead at school, and you can also get in touch via email should you want to know more: lgbt@hitchinboys.co.uk
