Governance, Financial & Annual Reports

the Chair of Governors

 

Dear Parents/Carers

Having two children at Heston, I can say with confidence that the School provides an outstanding learning experience in a safe and supportive environment – at Heston, every child really matters.

Respect, equality, resilience, ambition and honesty are the core values that every child at Heston Community School is encouraged to embrace. As Chair of Governors, I take great pride in, and share these values and the ethos that form the foundation of the education we provide.

In July 2019, the School was judged as “Good” by Ofsted. The report commented:

‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas. This may indicate that the school has improved significantly overall.’ 

Heston has gone from strength to strength, consolidating its position in the top 5% of schools in England at GCSE. In 2018 and 2019, the School also secured strong progress at A Level and BTEC.

As Chair of Governors at Heston Community School, I consider myself fortunate to be able to contribute to the ongoing success of the School. Heston has an excellent team of dedicated and highly skilled teachers, support staff and Leadership Team; with a community of students who are ambitious and highly motivated to learn. All students are provided with opportunities to become confident and rounded individuals, capable of high levels of achievement - irrespective of ability or background.

I would invite any parent to visit the School, see the outstanding learning environment and meet our wonderful students.
