Great Heath Academy

We are a three form entry primary school with a Nursery class, catering for over 550 pupils. We are proud to be part of Academy Transformation Trust (ATT) and work closely with the other academies in this trust. We use the International Primary Curriculum to create fun, meaningful learning experiences for all children, which we regularly share with parents and carers. We very much believe that the education of children is a partnership and constantly look for further ways we can work closely with parents and carers to ensure that all children achieve their full potential. Our latest Ofsted inspection (April 2018) rated us as Good in all areas and we are constantly monitoring our work to ensure we maintain this whilst striving to be Outstanding.

Children aged 3 - 11 years.

Also has a maintained nursery school/class for 3-5 year olds.
