I am very proud to be the Principal of Heanor Gate Spencer Academy 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 to every child on their educational journey. Recent success in both our exam results and Ofsted GOOD grading should provide all parents/carers with great confidence in our school.
Our 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.
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. Heanor Gate Spencer Academy also gives great weight to the importance of an effective induction programme and ongoing guidance for each student through their Achievement Team and Personal Tutor.
Mr S. Huntington
About our School
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 provided by our aspirational curriculum and highly committed staff who ensure that the quality of learning remains exceptionally high.
We expect our students to draw on an extensive and varied range of experiences and ways of learning, including quarterly ‘immersion days’ and our impressive catalogue of residentials on offer, in order to maximise their progress, allowing every learner to flourish and unleash their potential.
Over recent years we have made substantial investments in ICT. More recently we have been proudly awarded a ‘good’ rating by Ofsted, and in 2018 our students produced the best results the school has ever seen in both GCSEs and A-Levels.
Heanor Gate Spencer Academy is the academy in which your child will succeed in being the best they can be.
