Heanor Gate Spencer Academy

HGSA is a ‘good’ secondary school and sixth form which has shown significantly “improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding”. (Ofsted, May 2022).

Over the past 5 years, we have developed a fantastic culture amongst the students which is rooted in strong discipline and has culminated in a student body full of aspiration, commitment and success. “Leaders and staff are determined to enhance the lives and life chances of all pupils in this school.” (Ofsted, May 2022). The staff buy into the hashtag #TeamHeanor and this ethos of collegiality, team values and moral compass is what makes the unique working environment at Heanor Gate so enjoyable and fulfilling.

We believe that through an ethos of ‘Aspire, Learn and Achieve’, all of our students will achieve their very best educational outcomes. This ethos is at the heart of everything that we do. We want our students to believe that they can achieve whatever they want to with hard work, resilience and self-motivation.



We deliver a challenging yet inspiring curriculum and an unrivalled level of academic and pastoral support. We believe that what we offer students will support them to achieve success in the classroom and beyond; academically, personally and socially. “Pupils’ behaviour is very good. Lessons are calm and pupils work with focus”, (Ofsted, May 2022). We aim to instil students with a love of learning as well as helping them to become responsible, independent members of the community.

We believe that all staff are role models to our students and as such should continue to grow professionally. As such, our bespoke and strategic CPD model is extensive and supplemented by engagement with the Spencer Alliance for Leadership & Teaching but also through fully funded membership to the Chartered College of Teaching.

As part of the Spencer Academies Trust, we work alongside other schools in ensuring we deliver the very best education possible.
