The Hundred of Hoo is quickly becoming known as a centre with high expectations, high standards and high achievements. Throughout every element of academy life; our ethos about what we do, what we believe in and what we value, is clear. Above all else, we are about children and young people, their learning and their needs which is encapsulated in our strapline; “Aspire, Achieve, Excel”. We are about the whole child. We are a school which is child centred, and so all our efforts, our work and our endeavours revolve around the achievement of each pupil’s potential, academically, socially and emotionally. One of our core principles is that we want our learners to be the best versions of themselves.
Our staff is committed, caring and professional in all that they do as practitioners. We have a pastoral care system which is strong and focused on our children, with a strong emphasis on clear and open communication with parents and carers. We never lose sight of the fact that our children belong first and foremost to our parents. We are flexible and understanding, promising to work around difficulties which may arise in the lives of our young pupils. We therefore work very hard to ensure that our school is indeed a safe space and as far as possible, a happy place for each child. This is so important because the happy child is the child who learns and succeeds best.
The Hundred of Hoo Academy is a secondary school with academy status located on the Hoo Peninsula, in the village of Hoo in Kent, England. In 2015, we expanded to include a one form entry primary section. It is part of Leigh Academies Trust.
The Hundred of Hoo Academy is a Middle Years Programme (MYP) candidate school and we approach learning, teaching and living in the spirit of the International Baccalaureate, appreciating that academic learning is very important but not the only measure of success. We provide a curriculum that challenges students to solve problems, show creativity and resourcefulness, act with integrity and participate actively in our community.
At The Hundred of Hoo Academy we have high expectations of our pupils, hence we are a well disciplined academy, where pupils thrive in a culture defined by mutual respect and good behaviour. Pupils should all wear the correct uniform and be fully equipped for learning, they should have excellent attendance and arrive on time. We see parents and carers as our partners and work closely with families to secure the best possible outcomes for their children. We believe passionately that education transforms lives, that there is no ceiling to achievement and we are extremely proud of the academic progress that our pupils make. Our results improve year on year and are a testament to the collective hard work of pupils, staff and parents.
