School Description

The Hundred of Hoo is a large school for pupils aged four to 19. The secondary and sixth-form parts of the school were opened in September 2011, when the previous school became an academy sponsored by the Williamson Multi-academy Trust. The primary phase of the school opened in September 2015 and currently has pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. A broadly average proportion of pupils are eligible for free school meals. A very small percentage is believed to speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who receive support for a special educational need and/or disability is below the national average. Inspection report: The Hundred of Hoo Academy, 4–5 July 2018 Page 11 of 14 The school has a specialist resource base called the SWC, which caters for 64 pupils who have autistic spectrum disorder. All of the pupils in SWC have an EHC plan and are referred by the local authority. As a result, the overall percentage of pupils in the school who have an EHC plan is above average. The centre is currently oversubscribed and the school is working with the local authority to increase its capacity. The Williamson Trust delegates responsibility for governance to a local academy council. There is currently an interim chief executive officer in place at the trust. The school works closely with other schools in the Williamson trust to develop the quality of teaching, moderate teachers’ judgements about the standard of pupils’ work and monitor standards across the trust. Leaders make effective use of expertise from the Medway Teaching School Alliance, which forms part of the trust, to develop the quality of teaching. There is a nursery and kids club based on the school site, which is registered and run independently of the main school. Children from the nursery are escorted across to the school canteen each day to have their lunch, while secondary school pupils are in their lessons. When appropriate, the school makes use of alternative provision to support a small number of pupils in the secondary school. Currently, there are pupils placed at Aesthetics Academy, the National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders, Octopus Opportunities and Squirrels Riding School. The school meets the current government floor standards for what pupils are expected to achieve by the end of Year 11 and the minimum standards that students are expected to achieve by the end of Year 13.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
