Headteacher's Welcome

It is my privilege to have been entrusted with the education of children at Heston Community School and I relish the responsibility of providing the best possible all-round education in preparation for their fulfilling adult lives.

Heston is, and will remain, a strongly cohesive school with students coming from a variety of heritages and backgrounds. They flourish in our outstanding learning environment, developing respect and understanding for each other, thus ensuring they are well prepared for their futures. It is with great pride that I can state that visitors to the School regularly comment on the warmth of welcome, harmonious atmosphere around the School and the manner in which students engage in their learning.

Our students’ academic success is underpinned by the traditional values of hard work, resilience and impeccable behaviour, conducive to establishing good working habits. The excellent attitude of our students is supported by highly experienced teachers with a proven record of securing both outstanding examination results and providing a pastoral system that leaves no child behind. The progress that our students make consistently places Heston amongst the top schools in the country for value added.

Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that ALL of our students leave with sound qualifications on which to build their futures.  In addition, we aim to develop skills and qualities that prepare our students for life beyond school; become effective members of the community with the confidence to take advantage of all the opportunities available to them and the awareness and willingness to contribute.

I would urge any parent wishing to enrol their child at Heston to visit the School and experience the positive and supportive learning environment that inspires a passion for learning in all our students.
