About Great Heath Academy

Our core belief is that children learn best when they are interested and involved in their learning and can see the point of what they are doing, so we strive to make our curriculum stimulating and our teaching innovative. This approach has paid dividends: in our most recent Ofsted inspection, we were rated Good in every category.

In particular, inspectors noted that “teachers have wide opportunities to take on leadership responsibilities” and “pupils enjoy coming to school, understand how to express concerns, and appreciate staff’s quick responses to these concerns”. 

However, we were particularly proud of the comment relating to our inclusive provision: “Disadvantaged pupils benefit from the academy’s purposeful learning environment, and are well supported by additional intervention when necessary. Because of this, they make similar good academic progress to other pupils.”

As a three-form entry primary academy with an attached nursery, we provide the best possible start in life to more than 550 children. They enjoy access to fantastic resources, including an enormous field with excellent sporting facilities, dedicated art and cookery rooms, and a purpose-built library with over 4000 books. 

We want to build on these advantages to move from Good to Outstanding, and we believe that our partnerships with parents will be vital to making this happen. 

To discover how our collaborative approach changes lives, you need to see the academy for yourself. Please get in touch to make an appointment to meet the Principal and our pupils.
