The rich cultural tradition at The Hammond supports the dynamic, academic and creative mix of the school, and all students benefit from the interests and talents of their peers.
The breadth of our curriculum provides a strong foundation for life. Most of our students take 9 GCSEs. Not only do students achieve excellent academic results, they also learn the confidence to take their place in the wider world.
We accept academic and performing arts students through one of the following four routes:
- Academic studies for children from age 11
- Drama and academic studies for children from aged 11
- Music and academic studies for children from aged 11
- Full time vocational dance training with academic studies for children from age 11
Senior students on the vocational Dance courses and 6th Form Drama Course have access to a range of A Levels, delivered by Hammond staff. The sixth form co-ordinator works closely with both students and staff to monitor students and offer mentoring support.
As the Music Department at The Hammond goes from strength to strength, we are able to offer students with a talent for music a stimulating, educational and musical environment. The fully equipped Music Department, which includes practice rooms, numerous pianos, a large range of instruments and a "state of the art" recording studio, has developed into an established centre for music. Its regular concerts by its many choral groups, school band and instrumental ensembles continue.
