Year 11 students are warmly invited to collect their GCSE results on Thursday 24th August from 10am until 1pm. Please enter the school via the Community Entrance. Post results advice and guidance will be available to students on the day in the Library.
Any results not collected by 1pm will be posted home.
Any Year 10 students who have sat exams early will receive their GCSE results by post on Friday 25th August. We do not allow Year 10 students to come in on results day so that we can focus on Year 11 students and their progression to Post-16 courses.

Vacancy – Parent Local Governor on the Local Governing Body

We have provision for two Parent Local Governors to be part of the Local Governing Body. Bolu Heather has now stepped down as one of those Parent Local Governors. We wish to thank Bolu for all her hard work, support and commitment to the school during her time in this role.

Parents and Carers are now invited to nominate and elect a new Parent Local Governor to join the Heartlands High School Local Governing Body. An elected Parent Local Governor must be a parent or a person who has parental responsibilities of a student registered at Heartlands High School.

The vision is for all our students to develop a commitment to learning; teaching students that effort is essential, achievement will carry them forward, active citizenship matters and that none of this can be achieved without the highest of aspirations.

The role of a Parent Local Governor is an exciting and important opportunity to take an active role in the governance of the school; enabling that vision to become a reality through ensuring high standards of achievement for all, contributing to strategic discussions and holding school leaders to account by monitoring school performance and ensuring money is well spent.

Closing date for nominations is 9.00 am on Monday 26 June 2017.

Sixth Form Consultation

Sixth Form Consultation

HHS_Sixth Form Consultation_Leaflet_webgraphic_2

Heartlands High School was opened in September 2010. The school is popular and oversubscribed within the local community.

The Directors, Governors, parents, staff and pupils at the school have long held the ambition to provide education beyond the age of 16 to those students that would like to study Level 3 A levels. We have the highest aspirations for students within the school and it is fitting that we should help students to realise their ambitions by providing high quality A Level teaching to those young people that wish to go on to study at university.

We are required, prior to putting in an application to the DFE to undertake a formal period of consultation. We are genuinely interested in hearing your views and would, therefore, like to open a consultation with all stakeholders and the community on extending the age range of Heartlands High school to 11–18 and to opening a Sixth Form Centre within the school from 2019. Please find below a leaflet that gives you information on how to respond to the consultation. You may also access the information and survey here:

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/heartlandssixthform

We will be holding a consultation event on the 6th June at 18:00. This event will be for parents or members of the school community that have questions or concerns about the proposal. The consultation period will close on 26th June 2017. Following that, Directors will consider responses on making a decision about whether or not to submit an application.

They ensure that the Trust fulfils its statutory and legal obligations, including the approval of key policy documents. They appoint the CEO and set arrangements for performance management. The Board of Directors/Trustees is a vital role within the Trust.

Independent Trust Members
The role of a Trust member is extremely important, overseeing the achievement and objectives of the Trust and aspects of its governance. The role of a Trust Member is one step removed from that of a Director/Trustee. While Trust Members have a ‘hands off’ role, they are crucial in maintaining an overview of the effectiveness of the trust structure and holding the Directors/Trustees to account.

You will be required to attend 2 meetings per year. The role is voluntary, all reasonable expenses in accordance with the Trustees and Governors Expenses Policy; including travel and childcare may be reimbursed.

We are specifically looking for people who have:

  • a passion for, and commitment to, the education and development of young people
