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.
- 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.
Following conversion to academy status, the school was awarded over £0.5m to extend and enhance its existing facilities. This programme of work, which was completed in 2014, included the development of a brand new extension at the rear of the school. This contains superbly equipped classrooms for Year 5 and Year 6, changing rooms for our sports teams and a dedicated space for our childcare provision. Reconfiguration and refurbishment of existing space has also enabled us to create a dedicated music room and small group teaching rooms. We have a bespoke library, as well as a 30-computer I.C.T. suite. Our outdoor facilities include extensive playing fields plus a sizeable wooded nature area. The latter is regularly used for our Forest School provision.
The Sunday Times ranked Hockley Heath amongst the top performing state primary schools in the country based upon Key Stage 2 SATs results.
