Going to Heron Hall Academy

Dear families

Update: Letter to parents, 2 September

Headteacher, Arthur Barzey, has written to families regarding the cashless payments system we use in the school ParentPay. On Monday 7th September, we will be taking your child’s fingerprint in order for them to purchase food in the canteen if you previously consented to this through the admission process.

The payment system will not be ready for their first day so we therefore request that you send your child with a packed lunch. If your child receives Free School Meals, lunch will be provided for them.

You can read the letter here.

Update: Letter to parents, 21 July.

Headteacher, Arthur Barzey, has written to all our families with everything you will need to know about starting with us on Monday, 7 September. You can read the letter here.


We want to wish you a very warm welcome to Heron Hall Academy. We look forward to your child starting with us in September.

We are a popular and growing school with a reputation for excellent GCSE results and for developing our young people into citizens for the future. We pride ourselves on the opportunities we can offer our students, as well as the pastoral care that is so important to their social and emotional development at this stage of their lives.

At Heron Hall Academy we place emphasis on good behaviour and character.

Our Year 7s have to learn to take more responsibility for themselves with their homework and behaviour than they might be used to. We believe that excellent learning is underpinned by excellent behaviour.

We expect our students therefore, to show respect when interacting with other members of our school community and to uphold the reputation of the school in the local area.

Getting into good habits, and being accountable for their actions, is something our students will be working hard to develop, and we very much appreciate support from parents with this at home.

The links below should give you an insight into life at Heron Hall Academy.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have a query or would like additional information. Email us here.

Arthur Barzey, Head teacher       Madam Lawson Head of Year 7
