Welcome from The Principal – Mr J Jardine


The Heath (207) (Medium)It is with a real sense of pride that I welcome you to The Heath. The Heath is a highly successful 11-18 comprehensive school with almost 1,100 students on roll, supported by outstanding teaching and support staff, which results in true personalisation of learning and greater outcomes for all students.

Students and parents want a school that has the highest expectations of learning and discipline, and one where students are happy and safe. The Heath fulfils these wishes as a strong learning community in which every individual is valued.

The staff are dedicated, passionate and committed. The school’s mission is to promote the development of all its students so that they are able to achieve their full potential academically, socially and emotionally so that they can lead productive and happy lives.

We seek to ensure that academic potential is fulfilled by valuing the work of all students. There is a consistent focus on securing outstanding teaching and learning in the school, with appropriate pace and challenge in all lessons and excellent standards of behaviour. Students’ progress is regularly measured and appropriate additional support and guidance is given where it is needed.

Students are placed in teaching groups most suited to their ability, and these teaching groups are regularly reviewed. Success is celebrated and students are rewarded in many different ways for their efforts. This is a truly inclusive school.

You are more than welcome to visit us at any time during the day to see The Heath in action and I am sure you will be impressed with the peaceful yet purposeful environment that you will encounter.

I look forward to meeting you and demonstrating why The Heath is so popular and successful.

Jamie Jardine
