Working with us: Hugh Christie School has recently become part of the Leigh Academy Trust and we look forward to exciting times ahead with wonderful opportunities it will bring for our staff and students. Following the academisation, the School will be known as Leigh Academy Hugh Christie. Hugh Christie is a welcoming community with a friendly atmosphere. All staff strive to ensure every child is happy, successful and prepared for adult life.

Nearly 40% of our academies are judged outstanding overall by Ofsted, versus 15% nationally. The Trust is establishing four ‘clusters’ of academies: North Kent; Central Kent; South East London; Medway. In addition, the Trust is responsible for one of the region’s biggest initial teaching training organisations, a large teaching school hub and is an accredited apprenticeship provider.
