Choosing the most suitable Sixth Form can be a daunting experience, but at Hammersmith Academy we aim to make that choice much simpler. We are committed to providing an environment where you can achieve great success, ensuring you are taught by outstanding teachers, have access to fantastic resources and are supported on an individual basis by a caring and dedicated pastoral team.
At the Academy, we work hard to ensure your experience in Sixth Form is varied. Longer sessions are central to a deeper understanding of your chosen subjects and are complemented by a wide range of extra-curricular activities including study support, volunteering and charity work, sports and UK and international trips.
I look forward to welcoming you to Hammersmith Academy Sixth Form.

Hammersmith Academy’s Sixth Form is rated the number one state school Sixth Form for student progress in the borough and second overall.
This means Sixth Form students make more progress here than even most private schools and larger colleges.
Financial assistance is available through the 16 – 19 Bursary Scheme, and you can of course apply for free school meals via your local council.
We are extremely proud of the fact that when our students leave Hammersmith Academy, they not only have impressive qualifications, but are also confident, articulate, courteous and successful.
