Hassenbrook Academy

OFSTED Reports

Ortu Hassenbrook Academy is a mainstream secondary school for students aged 11 -16. We are a small school but our roll is beginning to expand. In September 2016 the school joined the high achieving Ortu Federation which is made up of Ortu Corringham Primary School and Ortu Gable Hall School.

We are on an improvement journey and have taken swift and decisive action to improve the education and care we provide for all students.

Ofsted June 2016 said:

‘The vision for school improvement is clear’. ‘The culture and ethos within the school are rooted in high expectations of staff and pupil performance.’

The staff and and Headteacher continue to build on the strengths of the school to deliver an outstanding education and outstanding care for the children of this school community.

The school boasts a really positive and supportive relationship between managers and staff and between colleagues, and between staff and pupils. Joanne Williams, our Headteacher, encourages teachers to have an impact both in and beyond their subject and she is always available and happy to discuss ideas with you as to how this can be achieved. Ours is a caring and well-ordered environment in which all students can enjoy learning, develop enquiring minds and acquire the skills and knowledge they need for a changing world.
