Academy Life

Hammersmith Academy is a vibrant school, where every student is expected to make a positive contribution. Students are encouraged to be active citizens and uphold the Academy’s ethos.

Students are given opportunities to become leaders in the form of the Junior Leadership Team or as mentors to students younger than themselves.

Opportunities at the Academy extend far beyond the school day. Session 3 is our extensive after-school activity programme, which features a hugely diverse range of activities. From rowing and trampolining to choirs and science clubs, there is something for everyone. Our belief is that every student has a right to broaden their horizons, therefore we expect every student to take part in at least one activity.

Students are stretched academically regardless of ability with an added focus on life beyond the Academy. Our Careers Department prepares students for both the professional world and university life.
