Hassenbrook Academy still struggling to attract pupils

Hassenbrook A

PARENTS in Thurrock continue to be reluctant to put Hassenbrook Academy down as the first choice for their children.

Whilst neighbouring schools such as St Clere’s and Gable Hall have around 250 parents putting them down as first choice, Hassenbrook struggles to get over 55.

Based on the figures alone, Hassenbrook could be described as the least popular school in Thurrock.

Many will see that as unfair as recent inspection reports will show that the school is on the up.

However, with three new schools planned for Thurrock (Harris Riverside, Orsett Heath and Thameside) there may well be many who worry for the future of the school.

Executive Head, Dr Sophina Asong is unavailable for comment.
