Ethos & Values

At Heanor Gate Science College we believe that through an ethos of ‘Aspire, Learn and Achieve’, all of our students will achieve their very best educational outcomes. This ethos is at the heart of everything that we do. We want our students to believe that they can achieve whatever they want to with hard work, resilience and self-motivation.

We deliver a challenging yet inspiring curriculum and an unrivalled level of academic and pastoral support, and believe that what we offer students will support them to achieve success in the classroom and beyond; academically, personally and socially.
