Life in Modern Britain
A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.”
Our pupils live in an ever-changing society that is demanding of each and every member. Pupils’ ability to effectively adapt and demonstrate key values will define their place within society. Globalisation means that our communities are becoming more diverse and our opportunities to understand each other and our surroundings is broadening every day; this can be a challenge for many, but is a chance for all pupils to thrive.
At the Hundred of Hoo Academy we understand that academic success is important, but for a child to understand the importance of respect and a deep knowledge of the world around them and the people within it is invaluable. Our aim is to develop pupils into creative and reflective individuals that are prepared for their next steps in education and beyond.
Our values centre on providing every pupil with the opportunity to attend a University of their choosing. University education is more than the next level in the learning process; it is a critical component of human development worldwide. It enables individuals to expand their knowledge and skills, express their thoughts clearly in speech and in writing, grasp abstract concepts and theories, and increase their understanding of the world and their community. A university education exposes pupils to a rich cultural and social environment. This gives every pupil a chance to interact with people coming from varying geographical, social and financial backgrounds. In the act of meeting new people, you learn new things and new ways of learning things. It prepares them for life in modern Britain.
Our thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, underpinned by our shared values, ensures that every pupil is supported to understand the dynamics of our society and their role within it.
