About us

We pride ourselves on the quality of the teaching and learning at the academy. The last two OFSTED inspections have judged the academy as 'outstanding.'

- All sixth-form lessons observed were either good or outstanding

- the new post-16 provision mirrors the high quality of the main school

OFSTED Inspection report January 2012

Students usually choose four subjects at AS level (although suitably qualified candidates may elect to do more). We also offer some BTEC level three courses. Our sixth form prospectus details the updated course choices.

 

Students who apply for a place at our sixth form are interviewed to check that their course choice complements their ambitions and qualifications to date; and that they have displayed the necessary attributes that will enable them to succeed in the sixth form. Offers made are conditional on examination performance and a good record of attendance, punctuality and behaviour.

 

Facilities available

The students benefit from a brand-new £21 million purpose built school. Sixth form students also have their own dedicated sixth form centre.

We have also recently benefitted from the installation of brand new ICT equipment within the Sixth Form Building

Additional support

We aim to provide unparalleled support, advice, monitoring and guidance to ensure that each student develops as a confident and independent learner. During the time that students are a member of the Heartlands Academy sixth form we expect them to become a role model for the younger years at the academy in terms of behaviour and attitude. We also expect them to take an active role in the life of the academy; making the most of the opportunities they will be offered.

We target individual student's aspirations from the first day they join our sixth form and provide extra-curricular opportunities to facilitate those aspirations. We endeavour to provide specific work experience, UCAS guidance, trips and residentials to ensure that our students are comprehensively equipped to realise their ambitions.
