Latest event - Supercharge your career!

Futures Event, 2024:

Supercharge Your Career!

This is a call to action.

At the Futures Event, on 21 March (2-5pm), we want to help you think big about your future, way past the usual choices of A Levels or BTECs.

What is the world of work going to be like?

This event is open to our Year 11s and to external students.

We are organising for you a special event where we dive deep into what's coming up in the world of work, looking at new trends, must-have skills for the future, and why being able to adapt and keep learning is so important.

By chatting with people who are already working in various industries, you'll get a sneak peek into how work is changing and what you can do to stay ahead. 

The Futures Event, 2024 is your chance to start thinking about your career in the long run, not just what's next in school. Get ready for an exciting future! 

At the end of the event there will be a prize draw 5 £20 vouchers and 1 for £50. So £150 in prizes.

This is not an event to be missed!

Academic excellence

Heron Hall Academy has a growing reputation for academic excellence, as well as for the care it takes of its young people.

The school was the Bronze Award Winner of the Pearson Secondary School of the Year competition in 2020-21.

Our Headteacher, Mr Arthur Barzey, was named UK Headteacher of the year in 2022.

One of the most asked questions from our families is when are you going to open a Sixth Form?

We have had some of the best GCSE results in the Borough since 2018 and the progression our students make with us after they join us is in the top 10% of the country. 

A Sixth Form will enable us to take students to the next level with a fantastic offer.

Next Open Evening : Thursday, 21 March 

Message from the Head of the Sixth Form

We want to ensure that students achieve the best possible outcomes academically and achieve well beyond their potential. 

We focus on ensuring that students are adequately prepared for the next stage of their lives after they finish Year 13. It is vital that students are supported to transition into and out of the Sixth Form. As such, the Sixth Form has a comprehensive careers and employability programme that will upskill all our students.

Whether that be a student who wishes to continue with higher education at university, or those who may wish to leave post compulsory education and transition into the world of work. Irrespective of what any student intends to do with their career, all will be able to access an in-depth and tailored Careers Information and Guidance Programme. 

All students participate within the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme that will allow them to volunteer within a range of different contexts. This will not only be within the school, but wider community. Students could volunteering in local primary schools or volunteer in local charitable organisations such as soup kitchens or homeless shelters. This will afford students the opportunity to develop the aforementioned soft skills such as; confidence, communication, resilience, tolerance and integrity.

The enrichment programme supports students to embody our school ethos and STRIVE values within Heron Hall and also the local and wider community.
