School profile

Hethersett Academy

Hethersett Academy is an Outstanding school, judged by Ofsted to be at the top level in all areas.

Our vision is that every student achieves their best. We aim to achieve this by ensuring everyone associated with the school commits to achieving outstanding progress, and enjoys and engages in their learning while being prepared to take on challenge without the fear of failure. Through this ethos we encourage each student to be a responsible and active member of both the school community and their local neighbourhood.

Students can create their own curriculum to suit their particular strengths as they move through the school towards their formal GCSE examinations. Our academic curriculum is supported by a huge range of extra activities such as the trips and visits undertaken within subject areas, participation in music and art events, and a wide selection of sporting opportunities across a huge range of sports activities.

Our extended school day brings about additional enrichment provision, focusing on science, technology and maths, creative arts and literacy. All students have an opportunity to study something new or to build on subjects they already enjoy.
