In the English Faculty, we aim to promote a love of learning and reading for pleasure, using a huge range of both nonfiction and fiction material to raise debates and promote intellectual curiosity. We are dedicated to providing students of all abilities the solid foundation they need to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing, including equipping them with a broad vocabulary.
Through our lessons, we provide them with the platform from which they can access the wider curriculum and help them enrich their learning both during and beyond their school life. We aim to support students in developing a range of transferable skills, such as analysis, critical evaluation, inference, explanation and comparison.
We are dedicated to ensuring students become independent learners and we provide ample opportunities for students to learn from their mistakes and develop a growth mindset to ‘Aim high, achieve excellence’.

‘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.’
James Blackwell – trained here, ex student
Having been a student at Hertswood Academy and now a teacher here for almost 10 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.
