About our Academy

At Havant Academy, we encourage students to be extraordinary. Havant Academy opened in September 2010 on an impressive site at the edge of Staunton Country Park as Hampshire’s first academy, sponsored by the outstanding Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT). With a new specialism in English alongside its sports specialism, it provides a transformational education for its students. Good schools bring out the best in every young person through addressing their needs, nurturing their talent and developing their potential.

At Havant Academy we treat each student as an individual and ensure that each young person receives the education that best suits them.

We are strong on discipline, strong on standards of achievement and strong on providing the best for all our students. We have very high expectations of our students and staff and of our parents/carers. Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions we make as parents/carers.

We have many responsibilities to the students in our care. Perhaps the greatest is to ensure that each student leaving Havant Academy after five years of study has opportunities and choices for their own future. These might be choices of university, further education or opportunities in the workplace. Because of our excellent careers staff, we are able to support every student who wants it support to apply for college places at 16.  With our guidance and your support, these choices will be informed and exciting.

Above all, students leaving Havant Academy will have an understanding of the wealth of opportunities open to them and the responsibilities they have to themselves and their communities.
