About The Hundred of Hoo Academy
Under our academy motto, Aspire, Achieve, Excel, we encourage our students to set their sights high, achieve to the best of their ability and take pride in all that they do.
Our aim is to support all children in becoming happy, confident and active citizens, ready to play a leading role in whatever walk of life they choose, and, to do this, we are passionate about promoting:
- The highest standards of achievement;
- Excellent teaching and learning;
- A challenging, enjoyable and tailored learning journey for all;
- Participation, personal development and well-being;
- Courtesy, respect and self-discipline;
- Partnership with parents and the wider community.
Since 2009, the Hundred of Hoo has been partnered by the nearby Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School. This vibrant and dynamic relationship has helped to raise aspirations and bring about a rapid improvement in standards, recognised by OFSTED in October 2010, who judged the school to be satisfactory overall with good capacity to improve. In particular, inspectors praised the quality of leadership, students’ behaviour, the progress made by students with special educational needs and the school’s engagement with the wider community.
The successful partnership with ‘the Math’ was further strengthened in September 2011, when the Hundred of Hoo converted to academy status as part of the Williamson Trust.
In December 2012, Ofsted again visited the Academy, judging the Academy to be good with outstanding features, recognising the relentless focus and ambition we have for those that are part of our community. The inspectors noted the good progress made by pupils, through the excellent teaching and learning opportunities we provide. This judgement was further supported when, in June of this year, the Academy was celebrated in the top 20% nationally for pupil progress.
We now continue to build on recent successes to ensure that the Hundred of Hoo becomes a beacon of excellence for the whole community; an Academy that has the confidence of parents and that young people are proud to attend.
