New Heartlands High School set to open this September, on time

Head Teacher Simon Garrill reported at the latest community update event on 3rd February that the new High School is set to open on time, this September. The new community school, between Wood Green Common and Alexandra Park Station, is hugely important to our area. Those present heard that appointments have been made for most senior teaching posts and the design of the school curriculum is now well advanced. Mr Garrill described the school’s ethos and what it expected from its pupils and parents. His vision was well received. In turn, he invited  children and parents to say what was important to them on, amongst other things the school day, behaviour, parental involvement and travel to and from school. Interest in places at the school was said to be high.

 The new school, a specialist in visual arts and media school with specialist autistic provision for 25 pupils from 2011, was the subject of a competition in 2007 on who should run it. Heartlands High will follow the successful community school model last used for Alexandra Park School, opening with 160 Year 7 pupils in its first year, before building year on year to achieve to achieve its full complement.
