Welcome from the Principal


Our new 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. Our students will achieve the very best of which they are capable; students who work hard; students who behave well; students who are happy, known and valued; and students who get involved with wider school life, whether in sports, the arts, the outdoors, the community or the world of work.


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. To this end, Heanor Gate School also gives great weight to the importance of an effective induction programme and on-going guidance for each student in order to ensure that each young person is both happy and successful with an Achievement team and tutors that will support and challenge every student to reach their potential.


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 for every child on their educational journey through Heanor Gate School.
