    On Wednesday our school improvement partner, Steve Ruddy visited Heworth.

    Steve is a fully qualified Ofsted inspector who has inspected hundreds of schools throughout his career. During the day, he visited lessons, spoke to students and staff, looked at pupils’ work, and spent time mixing with the pupils and staff during breaks and lunch times.  The day was a success and reflected the progress that Heworth Grange has made. Steve said, “This is the best I have ever seen Heworth Grange” and that “Pupils benefit from a positive learning experience.” He also noted that “staff went tout of their way to secure good relations with pupils.” 

    Year 11 achieved 94% attendance on Tuesday! Well done!

    Thank you to everyone for your continued effort with attendance

    It is so important to ensure every young person is at school engaged in their learning unless they are genuinely ill.  The team will continue to do welfare checks in person wherever possible.

    If you need any support with attendance please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Anderson our attendance manager.

    Your child will soon begin the next important stage of their school life. Over the next two academic years (Year 10 and Year 11), they will be following a range of examination courses that will provide them with their first set of school certificates and, hopefully, lead to further successes as they leave Heworth Grange to follow their post-16 education or training.

    Please read the letter below from Mr Hulse to find out more about the process.
