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.’
