About Us

Success through partnership and shared responsibility - by Pat Howarth, Principal of Hummersknott Academy

Hummersknott Academy is an 11-16 comprehensive school in the west end of Darlington. We have approximately 1200 students on roll drawn from the full range of social backgrounds. We became an Academy in 2011 and currently sponsor Skerne Park Academy, one of our partner primaries.

Our attainment is consistently above national averages, in 2014, 71% of students achieved 5A*- C including English and Maths, 40% achieved the English Baccalaureate, progress in English was outstanding and in Maths this was true for all but the least able. The latter is our area of focus. At our last Ofsted the overall effectiveness was judged as Good with Behaviour and Safety and Leadership graded as Outstanding.
