Welcome from the Principal
At Heanor Gate School, we are very proud of our strong reputation in the community. We will endeavour to continually improve in all aspects of the education we provide and become an outstanding school that everyone can be proud of.
Our aims for the school are to DEVELOP ALL LEARNERS TO ACHIEVE THEIR FULL POTENTIAL and to CREATE A CULTURE OF ASPIRATION
This is what we all firmly believe in and strive to achieve at all times.
Our school ethos of ‘Aspire, Learn and Achieve’ will permeate throughout everything we do and is a shared vision that every member of the school community can be part of. We will insist on the very highest standards for all of the students in our care. As part of the Spencer Academies Trust we work alongside other schools in ensuring we deliver the very best education possible.
A key component of our everyday work is ensuring that high quality learning is experienced every day within the school; by every student, in every subject and in every lesson. Alongside this we recognise that all students have a range of social, emotional and personal needs that may require support. Heanor Gate School also gives great weight to the importance of an effective induction programme and on-going guidance for each student through their Achievement Team and Personal Tutor.
I am very proud to be the Principal of Heanor Gate School and feel privileged to work with students, staff, parents and governors who all expect the very best from our school. We firmly believe in our vision and aims and are confident we will deliver the best possible outcomes to every child on their educational journey. Recent success in both our exam results and Ofsted GOOD grading should provide all parents/carers with great confidence in our school.
Mr S Huntington
