As part of United Learning and an academy since January 2015, The Hurlingham Academy is being transformed into a centre of educational excellence. With calm and friendly classrooms, staff and students have the perfect environment to do what they do best: teach and learn.
Located just south of Parsons Green in the west London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, the small 11-16 school is the kind of place where you can make a huge impact at every level and in every role, whilst being able to enjoy the benefits of a central London location.
Having undergone some radical changes in terms of approach and leadership, with the support of Dame Sally Coates and United Learning, the school is embedding permanent improvement at a rapid rate. As part of a cluster of United Learning schools in London and the Southeast – which includes Paddington Academy and Lambeth Academy – we benefit from excellent partnerships and shared working.
We are fiercely proud of the fact that when people come to visit the school, they are struck by the exemplary behaviour of the students and the enthusiasm of staff and students alike. The positive atmosphere and excellent relationships between staff and students mean that visitors regularly comment on how happy and welcoming everyone at the academy is.
Our aim is to provide an outstanding education in an exceptional environment, where every child has the opportunity to achieve the highest level of academic success.
We instil in our students these core values:
"I believe that The Hurlingham Academy is on its way to greatness. I am looking forward to my GCSE exam results as I am confident that I will achieve the best grades possible for me with the help provided by the academy."
"I have learned so much working at The Hurlingham Academy. All the staff here are really keen to help each other develop and share good practice. I have been given excellent CPD opportunities, both in-house, through great teaching and learning sessions, and through United Learning. The senior leaders help you nurture your professional interests. What makes this Academy really special is the students; I enjoy teaching every lesson."
Miss Mowbray, Head of History
