Welcome

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.

What do people say?

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.

Leon Wilson
Principal

Testimonials

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.

United Teaching is the teacher training programme for United Learning.

We offer you the opportunity to train while you teach, so you can get the teaching qualifications you need without going back to university. You can train for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on its own, or you can go for a PGCE as well, earning 60 Masters-level credits along the way.

Training with United Teaching gives you real teaching exposure in a choice of schools across the country. We will support you with subject specialists and dedicated mentors from over 70 of our schools nationwide.

About the Course

We offer an immersive programme starting with a two-week summer school in August. You will then spend your training year in your host school with additional training one afternoon each week. Assessment will continue throughout the course, based on your classroom experience and achievement measured against the Teaching Standards, while your PGCE study will consist of two academic assignments, assessed by Goldsmiths, University of London.

In your NQT year, you will continue to receive training, mentoring and professional development opportunities. Our NQTs benefit from twilight training sessions, mentor visits and additional subject-specific support from the Prince's Teaching Institute.
