The Nicholas Hamond Academy or ‘TNHA’, is an aspirational 11 – 18 school. Our students are awesome, the staff passionate and the parents supportive. Together we are ‘One Team’, “determined to be the best that we can be”.

It is a privilege to be the Principal of The Nicholas Hamond Academy. It is a huge responsibility but also the most fantastic job in the world to be able to work with the young people who come through our doors each day and help them fulfil their potential.

It is mine and my colleagues’ responsibility to provide our students with the best possible educational experience that we can and every day we continue to strive to do this. I want our learners to be motivated, enthused and, most importantly, inspired by the experience they have with us whilst helping them to develop all the skills that they need to be successful in their futures. I want our students to achieve and I want them to be successful and by creating an environment in which they can flourish I am certain that our students will have many successes during the time that they spend with us.

I know our students are capable of many fantastic things and being able to provide them the platform from which to do this is what we continually endeavour to do at TNHA so that our young people can have the most amazing futures.
