About Us / Academy Admissions

A Warm Welcome

Our school is a popular, non-selective secondary academy for boys aged 11 – 16, serving the local community of Sidcup. Hurstmere School is a special place, with a strong sense of community and a determination to succeed in all that we do.

Our vision is for our pupils to 'Believe and Achieve'; to be the best that they can be.  By promoting high aspiration and fostering a confident, self-belief that with hard work and determination, there are no boundaries to what they can achieve.

Hurstmere offers a supportive and inclusive environment that celebrates and welcomes diversity.  We expect everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and of each other.  Our pupils are expected to be ready to learn, to work hard and to celebrate their own and each other's achievements.  

We have staff who are devoted to providing the best education and pastoral care possible, and pupils of whom we are extremely proud; this mix creates a school that is a pleasure to work and learn in.

We are committed to a strong home-school partnership and believe the whole community can contribute to the progress of our students as they journey through Hurstmere School, to sixth form, apprenticeships, university, the workplace and beyond.

You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have to ensure you make the right choice for your son's education. 

Following this you will be invited to attend a talk from our Principal, Mrs. Bennett, who will share with you the distinctive nature of our school, the values that are at the core of everything we do at Hurstmere School, and an opportunity to discuss the admissions process.
