Meet our headteacher

Exciting times for our academy!


I am delighted to inform you that our academy has recently had an Ofsted inspection and we have been rated as a ‘Good’ school once again.


This is a fantastic achievement for our academy and it cements the outstanding progress we have made. The bar for a good rating is set very high, but to have been rated outstanding in two areas shows how our teachers and students are thriving.

Take a look at our Ofsted highlights here.


It truly is a privilege to be the headteacher of E-ACT City Heights Academy. From the moment our pupils walk through our doors, they are inspired and nurtured to experience a wide range of opportunities to be better equipped for the future.

At our school, we believe in fostering a nurturing environment where every child’s unique potential is recognized and celebrated. Through our dedicated faculty, innovative curriculum, and supportive community, we strive to inspire a lifelong love of learning and empower students to become compassionate, creative, and confident individuals prepared to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Our core purpose is centered on all our children, regardless of ability, to achieve to the best of their ability. We have very high expectations of our children and put great emphasis on instilling mutual respect throughout their academic journey and beyond.

At E-ACT City Heights Academy, we deliver an enriched curriculum through high-quality teaching where safeguarding is a priority. We see each child as an individual and firmly believe supporting them in their well-being is just as important as supporting them academically to help them reach their full potential.

We are proud to be part of E-ACT, a multi-academy trust, where our educational ethos is underpinned by our values of thinking big, doing the right thing and team spirit. I would encourage you to get in touch if you wish to see us in action; the best way to experience our school is to come and visit on a normal working day. It really is a great place to be.

I hope you decide to become a member of our community. By choosing E-ACT City Heights Academy, your child will experience a mix of care, support and opportunity to thrive for whatever path they choose to take.
