Welcome to Hemsworth Arts & Community Academy
We continue to thrive as an academy working in close partnership with Wakefield City Academy Trust (WCAT).
We made significant progress in 2015/16 against our 10 areas of focus and the Ofsted visit in November 2015 identified many improvements.
We continue to ensure that our Academy ethos is that we will all do the very best we can to enable the young people in our care to maximise their potential in everything that they do.
We are committed to safeguarding children and young people and expect that anyone who works with us, in whatever capacity, shares this same commitment.
It is a great privilege to be part of the team which will take the school forward to continue to build on the successes of the past and further raise standards.
The vast range of opportunities on offer for students and the wider community is central to our success in promoting positive attitudes and lifelong learning.
We are not complacent, continually looking for ways to improve further.
Our central focus will continue to be the commitment to ensure that the Academy does its very best to serve the community and that we raise the achievement of ALL.
We will continue to work in partnership with Wakefield City Academies Trust (WCAT) to ensure students at Hemsworth develop into:
- Successful learners, who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
- Confident individuals, who are able to lead safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
- Responsible Citizens, who make positive contributions to society
