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.

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 one of the best Progress 8 scores in the country.

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

We are currently finalising the courses we will be able to provide and our brochure.

An open evening will be held in October 2022.


Message from the Head of the Sixth Form

Our vision for the new Sixth Form is:

To create an environment where all students realise their potential, achieve academically, are well prepared for their future and actively engage within their school and wider community.

My vision for the Sixth Form has three distinct elements.

The first part is ensuring that students achieve the best possible outcomes academically and achieve well beyond their potential. As intelligence is not fixed, I believe that with hard work, commitment and determination, all students can academically progress and exceed their predicted targets. 

The second is to be focused 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 will implement a comprehensive careers and employability programme that will upskill any student.

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. 

The final part is of the vision is focused on ensuring that students are given the chance to develop key soft skills that are needed in industry and everyday life. My aim is to achieve this by developing and enhancing the character and culture of students within the Sixth Form.

All students will 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 will support students to embody our school ethos and STRIVE values within Heron Hall and also the local and wider community.
