Heworth Grange is proud to be part of Consilium Academies’ Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). As part of Consilium, we are dedicated to working towards the Consilium mission of providing an inclusive partnership with our community where lives are enriched by providing care, experience and opportunity, and where every student benefits from the same opportunities to succeed.

We are guided by four key drivers.

Every child- No Excuses
At Heworth Grange, we want every single student to achieve their potential. We go the extra mile for our students and understand that some of our students will require more support to overcome barriers to learning than others. We work collaboratively to problem solve and find the best therapeutic and academic solutions for our students to achieve the best possible outcomes.

High Expectations
We know that expecting the best from all our students is integral to them achieving a world class education. We strive day in and day out to ensure the highest standards of behaviour where everyone can learn and develop in a safe and secure environment. We also work tirelessly to embed the importance of attendance as a vital employability skill and work collaboratively with parents and carers to ensure all students attend school.

Engaging Learning
We know that great teaching and learning everyday will make the difference for our students and will support them to achieve their very best. We want to ensure all students are fully engaged and inspired by the learning experiences at Heworth Grange and as educators we fully commit to professional development to ensure we are continuously developing and providing the best experiences for our students.

No Islands
We know that there is strength in unity and at Heworth Grange we do not want anyone to feel like an island. We care for each other and we support each other, this means that we learn better. Our No Islands culture means that we work collaboratively with parents, carers, outside agencies, governors and other Trust schools. We value relationships above all else because we know that trust is vital to the success of our organisation.

We put students and staff at the heart of our decision making, ensuring everyone benefits from continuous improvement. We ensure that our staff have access to great professional development so that we continue to grow in expertise and provide the very best education for our young people.

We want to do everything in our power to ensure that the students at Heworth Grange leave school with the academic qualifications and personal skills to become happy and successful adults in their own right. We want our students to develop a life-long love of learning and to have the confidence to make a difference in their community as positive, proactive citizens within our society.
