Our curriculum

At Heron Hall Academy we aim to provide a skilful and knowledge-engaged curriculum which centres around how children learn to ensure all students strive to make the most progress they can.

The curriculum has two principal aims: 

To provide opportunities for all students to learn and achieve to their highest potential, and to become successful lifelong learners 

To promote students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development ensuring diversity is embraced, and prepare them to become responsible citizens

Students make fantastic progress with us
The progress our students make from the point at which they join us to when they leave is within the top 10% of the country.

We also insist on a strong emphasis on pastoral care. So let us show you why we think you should make us your FIRST choice!

What we expect from our students
Student achievement is recognised in a variety of ways throughout the year. For day to day achievements in class work and home learning, teachers and tutors issue positive merits for students; these merits are recorded onto our school system, certificates are awarded to those who achieve a high number of merits in each form class.
