Open Event: A Time of Choices

Heart of England have been holding a Virtual Open Week during 21-25 September for those seeking to join us for Year 7 in September 2021.

We have been unable to host live events and to welcome visitors and potential students to the school so a dedicated area of our website is set up to provide as much information as possible and to give a glimpse of life at Heart of England.

The Open Week area has links to our new 2021 Prospectus which contains details of our philosophy, Core Values, curriculum and other important topics such as students support and student progress.

Online visitors can take a 3D Virtual Tour of main parts of our buildings with feature photographs and interactive 360° views of selected areas.  “Ordinarily, we would host an Open Evening here at school with the opportunity for student-led tours of school,” said Vice Principal Mr Bennett.  “Sadly a tour in person isn’t possible this year but we hope that our interactive virtual tour will offer a snapshot of our school.”

A welcome video from Principal Miss Hughes-Williams is also available to watch on the Video Presentation page along with other presentations from Mr Bennett, our Year 7 Manager and the Head Boy and Head Girl.

In a message reflecting on recent interactions with our students Miss Hughes-Williams said, “My encounters show the very essence of the choice you are making.”  The message of welcome also focused on the joy, creativity and excitement of learning that is so evident amongst our new students this term.

Although the official Open Week is ending, our Open Event pages are still available so users can visit any time and see what we have to offer at Heart of England.
