What the school says...

Hammersmith Academy is a non-denominational, all-ability, co-educational secondary school, with specialisms in Creative & Digital Media and IT.

The Academy aims to develop the talents of all its students to the full and to raise educational standards, through excellent teaching and the innovative use of IT. We believe every student can achieve their full potential and that we inspire each other to be outstanding. We have high expectations for attendance, uniform, behaviour and attitude to learning.

Our dynamic curriculum is both traditional and rigorous, inspiring interest, developing skills and knowledge, and igniting our learners passions. Our small class sizes allow more interaction between students and teachers, and the extended day (8.30am-4pm) enables more time to be devoted to each subject.

The Academy is based in a specialist four storey building which boasts state-of-the-art facilities including a Theatre, Drama and Dance studios, Digital Editing and IT suites, Library, Fitness Suite, four-bay Sports Hall, outdoor Astroturf area, modern practical art and design, science and technology spaces, and modern classrooms.

Hammersmith Academy has developed a no excuses culture, where high expectations, high aspirations and success are the norm and where everyone is proud to be an HA learner. We believe that every student can achieve their full potential and that we inspire each other to be outstanding.
