Meet our Headteacher

Mrs S Haughton

Welcome to Heartlands Academy in Birmingham! As the newly appointed headteacher, I am honoured to lead a dynamic and diverse community of learners, dedicated staff, and supportive families. Our academy’s mission “A place to empower dreams!” is to provide an outstanding education that inspires and empowers our students to reach their full potential.

I was born and raised in Wolverhampton and moved to Birmingham over 25 years ago. I have worked as a senior leader in a range of schools and academies across the West Midlands for over 15 years. It is a privilege and a pleasure to lead an academy in my hometown and contribute to the success of the young people in the academy. I am passionate about education and believe that all young people deserve an outstanding education so that they can fulfil their potential and make valuable contributions to their community.

At Heartlands Academy, we believe in the power of education to transform lives. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that challenges students to think critically, communicate effectively, and develop a lifelong love of learning. Our dedicated teachers provide a nurturing and inclusive environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, creativity, and personal growth.

We are committed to providing our students with the skills, knowledge, and values they need to become responsible citizens and leaders in their communities. We believe in developing the whole person, and we offer a wide range of extracurricular activities and enrichment programs to support our students’ interests and talents.

I am excited to be part of the Heartlands Academy community, and I look forward to working with you to achieve our shared goals. Whether you are a student, parent, or member of our staff, I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our academy.

A warm welcome awaits you here at Heartlands Academy and, if you need any further information or would like to arrange a visit to the academy, please do not hesitate to contact us via
