Achievement and Commitment

Photo of HeadteacherAt Heart of England School, we strive for excellence in everything we do and have a clear, commonly held vision of what we are here to achieve.

Our young people are well cared for and every effort is made to promote their educational and personal development.  Hard work and achievement are top of the agenda for everyone.  We want every child to be successful, to aim for success from the day they join us and throughout their school career so that when they leave us, they do so with the best results they can achieve, fully prepared to continue their development in Higher Education or employment.


The superbly resourced Multi-media Centre on the top floor of the Enterprise Block is now well used in school, particularly by students on the GCSE Media Studies course. The team providing Heart of England Radio also use the facilities for broadcasting, interviewing and recording of their shows. It is hoped the real potential of the resource will be discovered by the broader local community and they will begin to make use of it.

Our students have raised money to support the Training Centre for Indonesian street children which will ultimately provide interest-free loans to set up small businesses there. A number of Masterclass activities have been taking place at local Universities, and we are beginning our collaborative working with our partner Primary Schools. Our first activity was a visit to Avoncroft for a Year 6 Team Building Design Challenge, with children from Lady Katherine Leveson School and Meriden School as well as two Year 7 students, Alex Monnington (formerly a Lady Katherine Leveson pupil) and Lara Horton (formerly at Meriden). Their presence also allowed the Year 6 students to ask questions about life at the Heart of England School and so will support successful transition. Year 7 students have access to Imagineering after school, which supports the development of problem-solving and project work, and Year 8 have Club 8 which is developing a Scalectric circuit.

Amtico have formed a very positive link with the school and have donated a range of off-cuts which the Art department will put to good use. They have also agreed to sponsor Art Prizes for next year’s GCSE and A Level Awards Evenings. If you work for a company that has ‘waste’ products we might be able to use, please ask. Not only is this a great way to recycle, but it may save the school resources which could be deployed differently.
