Welcome to Heart of England Sixth Form
I consider it both a great privilege and a huge responsibility to provide our students with the best possible preparation they need for success in a rapidly evolving global community. Our students will need to be flexible, adaptable and have the imagination and creativity to cope with a world in which there will be challenges and opportunities aplenty.
Given the rapid nature of change, it has never been more important that our young people learn how to learn. Our students are inquisitive, confident and ambitious for themselves and for their communities, fully engaging in the richness and diversity of school life and all that lies beyond.
One of the fundamental strengths of the Heart of England Sixth Form over the two decades I have known it, is that it is undoubtedly an environment where academic excellence and educational fulfilment are given the highest priority. One of our key responsibilities is to make sure that the best teaching brings about the highest quality of learning across all subjects, leading to outcomes in public examinations that are as strong as they can be for each individual. Whilst academic results are our priority, our Sixth Form achieves the balance that helps produce really well rounded and successful individuals. Welcome to an outstanding Sixth Form.
Our Principal, Jacqueline Hughes-Williams, her Leadership Team and the Governing Body are passionate about leading Heart of England school. Our shared vision is all about ‘Creating Futures’ for each and every one of our students.
To make this vision a reality all of us, students, parents, teachers and governors, need to work together in partnership sharing the same values. Our school values are:
Honesty: trust is about being candid with one another; relationships work best in this climate
Determination: success is built on hard work; facing challenges and conquering them, creating opportunities to achieve more than we thought we could
Courage: taking risks, aspiring to be adventurous; being brave enough to try new things without fear of making mistakes en route to excellence
Humour: an essential ingredient; discovering the joy of learning to move forward through collaboration and listening
Kindness: to experience the generosity of others; understanding that we are all part of the learning community, striving towards excellence together
Buying into these values and putting them at the heart of everything we do and say makes our school a great place to learn and for students to thrive.
By choosing Heart of England School you are entrusting the future to us. You have our absolute commitment to do everything we can to successfully deliver on that investment.
