The Heys School is a smaller than average 11-16 mixed comprehensive school. This allows us to provide aligned and
differentiated support as we strive to provide the highest standards for students and staff alike. Our core values of
Be Kind, Be Determined and Be Respectful underpin the goal for all students to maximise their potential, to be the best they can be, every day.

The Heys School stands at the centre of our community and we embrace the opportunity to offer our young people
guidance and aspiration to be the best that they can be in all aspects of life. We prepare our students to be active
and valuable adults. Quality teaching and learning supported by reliable and structured pastoral systems provide
opportunities and guidance on becoming resilient young people.

We strongly believe in building a culture of resilience and tolerance in which our students can thrive. Our aim is to
increase our student’s self-belief while opening their eyes and minds to pathways which lead to them becoming
whatever they believe they can be.

Relationships between school and parents/carers are key to the development of successful young people. We
actively encourage parents/carers to interact with school by calling anytime or arranging to come into school for a
visit and a tour.
