TEACHING & LEARNING
Teaching and Learning is at the heart of everything we do. Young people at The Hammond thrive as they have the opportunity to study a broad, balanced and rich curriculum in a supportive and nurturing environment. Our academic staff are highly effective and skilled in delivering the highest quality academic education, ensuring that students make excellent progress and are fully supported to fulfil their potential.
In years 7- 9, our students study the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science alongside a range of Humanities, Arts, Languages and Technology subjects. In year 10 students continue with their core learning and study towards GCSE’s in English Language, English Literature, Mathematics and Science. Students also opt for a further 3 GCSE or equivalent courses to study from a wide range of options. A range of A levels/ Level 3 courses are offered to our post 16 students.
Our young people are also encouraged to engage with a wide range of extra-curricular activities to broaden their life experiences and expand their understanding of the world around them. The Hammond further supports this through a robust and varied PSCHE programme in which we regularly involve both our community and key external companies.
