Welcome to Hockley Heath Academy

We would like to welcome you and your children to Hockley Heath Academy– a vibrant, village primary school on the Solihull/Warwickshire border.

This is a friendly, inviting school with a highly professional, caring and committed staff. It has a stimulating and happy environment in which each child experiences a broad and balanced curriculum developing positive attitudes and acquiring a sense of achievement, self-confidence and self-discipline.

We encourage:-

  • Co-operation, sensitivity and tolerance amongst pupils.
  • Pupils to develop lively and enquiring minds.
  • Parents to take an active part in the education of their children.

At Hockley Heath Academy, education is a partnership between the children, their parents and the school. We have an open door policy and parents are always welcome if there are any questions or issues to discuss. We aim to know you and your children thoroughly, and to provide all children with the opportunities and experiences to develop to their full potential. No child will be discriminated against on grounds of gender, race, creed, culture or ability. The school, which opened in 1913, has witnessed many changes but retains much of the traditional values associated with a village school. The children are taught in single-aged classes of mixed ability.  Their learning is founded on a broad based, modern educational programme following the National Curriculum.  Progress is related to individual needs and level of development, not to chronological age.  Additional support is provided for children who need extra help. Facilities include a brand new built-for-purpose extension housing Year 5 and Year 6, dedicated space for our before and after school provision and sports changing rooms. There is also a newly extended Foundation area and outdoor covered play space, dedicated Library and I.C.T. Suite plus extensive playing fields. We even have our own nature area which is regularly used for our Forest School.

 The Sunday Times ranked Hockley Heath amongst the top performing state primary schools in the country, based upon Key Stage 2 SATs results.


STOP PRESS: Hockley Heath Academy is nearing completion of a £0.5m building programme to develop the school facilities. The second phase of the development involves the reconfiguration of existing facilities to provide enhanced classroom space, a larger SEN room and a dedicated music room. 




“This is a good school.  The following statement from a parent accurately sums up the views of the very large majority:  This is a well managed and enthusiastic village school, commanding much respect and support from parents and the local community.”

Ofsted Inspection Report, May 2009




This is a good school that provides good value for money.  The school is a central part of the community and is highly valued by parents.  Pupils are happy, well cared for and like the school very much.  Pupils achieve well and make good progress throughout school because of consistently high quality teaching.  Leadership and management are good.   The Headteacher, staff and Governors are dedicated to school improvement.
