About Us

Welcome to Sir Christopher Hatton Academy we are an independent non denominational Academy providing comprehensive education for boys and girls aged 11 to 18, based in the market town of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.

We are incredibly proud that Hatton is the highest performing secondary school in Northamptonshire and in the top 1% of schools nationally for the progress 8 measure 2018-19.  We are rated by Ofsted as OUTSTANDING and have the official World Class School accolade.  In addition to this we are helping to lead and inspire the education system as the lead school in the Hatton Teaching School Alliance.

Our mission is to develop the potential of all students, both in the classroom and outside by 'aiming for excellence' in all that we do'.  If a student is encouraged to believe that they can achieve their full potential, they often do!  This concept underpins every aspect of student life at Hatton.  

At the heart of the Academy's continued success is a team of dedicated staff and Board of Directors, working together with devoted parents and our wonderful young people to prepare for their adult life; we refer to our school community as 'Team Hatton'.

Together 'Team Hatton' will provide the highest standards of pastoral care for our children, ensuring that they feel safe and secure, supported and valued.  Your child's welfare will always be our absolute priority.  Together we will strive for nothing but the best educational outcomes for your son or daughter; we will go that extra mile to ensure that their secondary school experience is filled with enrichment, enjoyment and encouragement.

Our most valuable asset is our talented and dedicated team of highly qualified teaching and support staff.  They will provide care, guidance, support and inspiration to all our students in a learning environment, characterised by high standards of behaviour and mutual respect.
