A warm welcome from our Principal
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 pupils as they journey through Hurstmere School, to sixth form, apprenticeships, university, the workplace and beyond.
I look forward to welcoming you to Hurstmere School and working with you to ensure the very best learning experiences for the young people in our care.
