Ofsted 2019:

‘Hertswood Academy is a calm and pleasant place for pupils to learn.’

‘School leaders and staff have what one parent called ‘great belief’ in their pupils’ abilities to do great things in school and their adult lives. Many pupils told inspectors that staff encourage pupils to aim for extraordinary goals in life. As a result, many pupils take impressive next steps in their education and careers.’

‘Pupils told inspectors that they enjoy going to the school and appreciate the remarkable new buildings.’

‘Sixth-form students told inspectors that they chose Hertswood because staff and pupils care for each other well. Many parents reported to inspectors that staff ‘go the extra mile’ for pupils to ensure that they are happy and safe.’

‘Many pupils do well at the end of Year 11. This is because teachers focus on helping pupils succeed in the Year 11 examinations.’

Kate Di Gregorio – Head of English

The school is an extremely cohesive community in which more experienced colleagues work tirelessly to ensure trainee teachers feel supported, valued and encouraged. Having left Hertswood Academy for six months to work abroad, I was delighted to return. It honestly feels like I never left! In my opinion, other schools pale in comparison; I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

James Blackwell – trained here, ex student

Having been a student at Hertswood Academy and now a teacher here for almost 16 years I have witnessed the incredible journey the school has made. The students achieve more than ever before and I am proud to be part of a very hard working group of staff that is helping the young people from the community I grew up in.
