The Hessle Academy is one of only 170 all-through schools in the country providing education and support for students aged 3-19. The Academy comprises Hessle High School and Sixth Form College and Penshurst Primary School. The Hessle Academy is a founding member of The Consortium Academy Trust, a fast-growing Multi-Academy Trust, formed in 2017. Hessle High School and Sixth Form College is set in attractive grounds, located on Heads Lane, with excellent views down the River Humber and across the spectacular Humber Bridge. Staff and students enjoy the benefits of high-quality accommodation, equipped with the latest technology and specialist facilities that are among the best in the region. Penshurst Primary is a larger-than-average school with two/three teaching groups in each year and is heavily over-subscribed. The school also offers a nursery which is equally popular with parents. The school occupies a traditional and attractive series of buildings which are at the heart of the local community set in extensive grounds. The Academy, located in the East Riding of Yorkshire, primarily serves the East Riding town of Hessle and some parts of West Hull. Smaller groups of students are drawn into the secondary phase from the neighbouring small towns and villages of East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Proximity to the M62 ensures easy access to the motorway network and other major cities in Yorkshire and beyond. The Hessle Academy is a good and ambitious school. This was recognised by Ofsted in our most recent inspection in September 2018, when the achievement of students, quality of teaching, behaviour and personal development of learners and leadership and management were all judged to be good. In recent years, outcomes for learners have been consistently above average in terms of attainment and the school is a disciplined and well-organised environment. We have high standards of school dress and have clear expectations on punctuality, attendance and behaviour. Our learners are positive and respond well in all aspects of school life. The Sixth Form College is focused on providing high quality teaching and care to secure the best achievement and outcomes for all. Students are able to study at Hessle as well as having the option to study subjects at either of the other Consortium Academies. The Sixth Form is based in the historic Tranby House, a Grade II listed building that was fully refurbished and brought back to its former splendour in our recent renovation. Tranby House now comprises a Sixth Form social area and catering facilities as well as extensive study facilities. Sixth Form students play a full role in the life of the school, but equally will continue to enjoy the advantages of this dedicated provision. The Academy prides itself on the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities offered to our students. Annually, students take part in over 300 teams, clubs, and events. The Hessle Academy enjoys an excellent reputation amongst the local community and is a popular choice amongst parents. During our recent Ofsted inspection, a response to the Parent Survey commented that; “All the staff from the headteacher to the caretaker seem to genuinely care for the children from a pastoral care and academic point of view”. The teaching staff are extremely dedicated to maximising the potential of the children and pupils in their care. Most have worked at the school for many years and have sent their own children to the Academy. The atmosphere is supportive and friendly, many visitors and staff often remark that 'it feels like an extended family'.
