1.1 Vision

1.2 Mission

Our mission is to instil, in all stakeholders, a passion for lifelong learning and the courage to learn from mistakes.

We have four key aims:

1. To develop Students who are ambassadors for the School, positive role models in the community and who achieve in the top 10% of similar schools, progressing to the best universities or jobs.

2. To have Staff for whom we are the employer of choice, providing a fulfilling place in which to work and an environment where their contribution is valued.

3. To have Parents/Carers who know that Heston Community School cares about the individual needs of their children and for whom the School is the natural choice to entrust the education of their children.

4. To contribute to a Community for whom we are a partner of choice in improving the life chances of young adults.

1.3 Values

A learning community that provides a safe and nurturing environment, with an atmosphere of high expectations, creating ambitious, successful and responsible young adults able and willing to contribute to society.

Resilience, honesty, ambition, respect and a strong sense of egalitarianism exemplify the values we instill in our students.

About us

After 15 years of service it is my privilege to be entrusted with the education of children at Heston Community School and I look forward with relish to the responsibility of providing the best possible all-round education in preparation for fulfilling adult lives.

The academic success of students at Heston is underpinned by the traditional values of hard work, resilience and impeccable behaviour that is conducive to establishing good working habits. The excellent attitude of our students is supported by highly experienced teachers with a track record of securing both outstanding examination results and providing a pastoral system that leaves no child behind. The progress that our students make consistently places Heston among the top schools in the country for value added.

Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that ALL of our students leave with sound qualifications on which to build their futures. In addition, we aim to develop skills and qualities that prepare our students for life beyond school; become effective members of the community with the confidence to take advantage of all the opportunities available to them and the awareness and willingness to contribute.

Heston is and will remain a strongly cohesive school with students coming from a variety of heritages and backgrounds. They flourish in our outstanding learning environment, developing respect and understanding for each other, thus ensuring they are well prepared for their adult lives. It is with great pride that I can state that visitors to the school regularly comment on the warmth of welcome, harmonious atmosphere around the school and the focus of students in their learning.

I would urge any parent wishing to enrol their child at the School to visit and experience the positive and supportive learning environment at Heston.
