Welcome Statement:

Welcome to the Hornchurch Academy Trust which was formed with three schools dated 1st September 2017.  This came as a result of extensive consideration responding to the future challenges of educating our children. As of 1st September 2018 the Trust expanded to consist of five schools.   As a collective we take the view that we will be stronger and more effective through collaboration and working together to serve and meet the needs of our children, families and community. By following this path, we will improve the life chances and outcomes for our children.

Mr C W Hobson - CEO

Vision Statement:

The Hornchurch Academy Trust is committed to improving standards and outcomes for pupils in all of our schools regardless of any actual or perceived barriers.  Through collaboration and shared excellence in all we do, we aim to provide all children with the highest quality teaching through a high quality sequential curriculum designed to meet the needs of all learners, covering the full National Curriculum.

All schools within the Hornchurch Academy Trust are connected by a shared strategic vision, culture and core purpose.  However, each school retains its own unique character which reflects their school community.  As a family of schools, we believe that we are stronger together.

We will share excellence to:

  • Improve outcomes for children
