History[edit]

The former building as Heartlands High School in 2006

Originally known as Duddeston Manor School and then Heartlands High School,[9] the school converted to academy status on 1 September 2009[10] and was renamed Heartlands Academy. The academy is sponsored by E-ACT and moved into a new building in 2012.[11]

GCSE results[edit]

Heartlands High School generally had low average percentage for 5+ GCSEs (or equivalent) A*-C including English & Mathematics in the past, with the lowest recorded being 11% back in 2003. However, since then, the average percentage has been going up steadily each year. Before the school turned to an academy in September 2009, the school had a percentage of 40% for the final year as Heartlands High School. Since becoming an academy in 2009, the results have been continuing to increase, reaching over 50% for the first time in 2012. In 2017 Heartlands achieved 62%, which was their highest results percentage ever recorded.
