Principal's Welcome

Hello and welcome to Hammond Academy


Being Principal gives me great pleasure. Having been the Deputy and Acting Head here for two years, I am fully committed to the community of Hammond Academy and strive to ensure that the school serves our children and their families well.

Your children are the reason why we are all here. Firstly, and in my opinion, most importantly, we will always try to ensure that your child is happy. As a parent myself, I fully understand that children’s happiness, safety and wellbeing must always be the priority.

The staff at Hammond Academy are loyal and dedicated; we all want to do our best for our children. We want your child to be a motivated and enthusiastic learner who will be brave when learning; never afraid to try new things. We want our pupils to be fully equipped for their lives ahead. To help ensure that this happens, we will continue to look at ways of making our curriculum exciting. I will strive to promote and support excellent practice within our school.

I strongly believe that parental partnership is vital to ensuring the well being and academic success of pupils. Parents are an essential component of our school community.  I therefore look forward to working closely with you to support your children and hope that you feel welcomed by all. 

Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Thank you for visiting! 

Mrs Denise Kennedy

Principal
