Welcome to Heanor Gate Spencer Academy

Heanor Gate Spencer Academy is an outstanding secondary school and sixth form in Heanor, Derbyshire.

As part of the Spencer Academies Trust, we work alongside other schools in ensuring that we deliver the very best education possible. Our students will achieve the very best of which they are capable provided by our aspirational curriculum and highly committed staff who ensure that the quality of learning remains exceptionally high.

We expect our students to utilise our extensive and varied range of experiences and methods of learning; these include ‘immersion days’ and our impressive catalogue of residential trips, to maximise their progress, allowing every learner to flourish and fulfill their potential.

Over recent years, we have made substantial investments in ICT and we are proud to have been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted. In 2018 our students produced the best results the school has ever achieved in both GCSEs and A-Levels.

Heanor Gate Spencer Academy is the educational setting in which your child will succeed in being the best they can be. #TeamHeanor
