A Message from the Head Teacher2011-01-05T12:03:42+00:00

Thank you for taking the time to read our website. We hope that by doing so you will begin to get a flavour of the exciting and vibrant place that Heworth Grange School undoubtedly is.

Our young people achieve very well and on two occasions recently we have been recognised as one of the top two hundred most improved schools in the country, an achievement of which we are all very proud. Outcomes for students have improved in each of the last three years and we are determined to build upon this success by providing a curriculum which meets the needs of our students and a learning experience which both challenges and inspires them.

Heworth Grange was in the fortunate position of being a part of the Government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme. The entire school buildings have been either rebuilt or refurbished and in April 2012 we opened what was effectively a brand new school. We are confident we have facilities fit for delivering a first class education well into the 21st Century. With access to state of the art digital technology and greatly enhanced community arts and sports facilities, our new buildings provide a wealth of new opportunities for our students and their families and we look forward to sharing the benefits of these with all of our local community.Heworth Grange has always been highly regarded within the local community for its caring and inclusive ethos and we work hard with parents and carers to form a partnership that allows learning to flourish. We expect a lot of our young people. In return we encourage them to become caring, responsible and active members of society, proud of their local community and determined to make a positive contribution to it.

During the inspection, there were many lessons seen where achievement was good or outstanding. Students are very keen to be involved in their own learning and rise well to challenges.

Heworth Grange is a specialist Arts College and many members of our community have enjoyed some of the fantastic productions that our students take part in each year. We are a recognised centre of excellence for work in The Arts. Equally though our students are very successful in the sports arena with Heworth Grange teams frequently winning local and regional competitions and many of our young people gaining recognition at a local, regional and national level.

We care very much about the young people we work with. We seek to inspire a love of learning that will help them to achieve to the best of their ability. We want our young people to do their best for each other, their families and their community. If you share our values and decide that this is the right school for your son or daughter then we thank you in advance for supporting us in achieving our aspirations. If you would like to visit us at Heworth Grange or find out more about we have to offer, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The details are available on this website.

Kind regards
