We really are amazed at the variety of extra-curricular activities you offer at the school in general and the efforts your team at HA are making to build on and develop our son’s strengths in particular; it is hard to imagine what more we could have asked from the Year 9 experience for him.
Your school provides students with a safe learning environment where they are free to express themselves, ask questions, grow at their own pace. I am really impressed with the way you have handled my child. As a parent, it’s an awesome thing to see – appreciable progress in my child’s academic knowledge, as well as strong moral, social and cultural development. Hammersmith Academy is one of the best schools in London.
My daughter joined Hammersmith Academy in June and I would like you all to know it’s been the best thing to happen to her all year. I am astounded by the school’s commitment and approach to pupil, parent, communication, discipline, opportunities and the wealth of extra-curricular activities, the speed of which strengths and weaknesses are picked up and dealt with, the support network … none of which we have experienced since leaving Primary School. She is certainly in the perfect place to thrive.
Our daughter is thriving and loves her school. We were amazed to hear that she is not only excelling in subjects, she has always felt confident in, but that her Maths is now up there as strong as her English. Because of great teaching, she is newly confident and interested in this subject. The push for girls in STEM has had an impact on her. Personally, I am incredibly grateful for the focus HA has given her in this regard.
The problem she now faces is that she is good at so many subjects, she no longer has a clear idea what she wants to do when she grows up! What an incredible place to be. She is incredibly motivated by her brilliant teachers across the board.
In response to our 2017 Ofsted rating of Good.
The school should have an outstanding rating. The commitment and sincerity of its teachers is second to none and it is more than a school. It is a caring and forward looking community.
This is super to see! The Ofsted feedback on pupil behaviour is especially encouraging. I work in Education and am a former Chair of Governors so I appreciate how much hard work and passion goes into making things work so well.
Well done to you and all your staff for maintaining this good result. Thank you and keep up the good work.
