HEARTS Academy Trust

The HEARTS Academy Trust was formed in 2011 when The Wickford Church of England School (an Outstanding school) became an academy.  Since then it has grown to a multi-academy trust of six schools, including  Hilltop Junior, Hilltop Infant, Briscoe , Stambridge and Waterman Primary schools.


Our Executive Headteacher and CEO, Mrs Debbie Rogan OBE, is a designated National Leader in Education committed to enhancing and enriching the lives of children, staff and parents by transforming learning opportunities and encouraging children to ‘aim high’.


HEARTS Academy Trust is committed to providing a happy, caring and safe learning environment for all within a values led context, where everyone feels valued and grows in confidence and independence.

HEARTS vision, values and ethos


We promote HAPPINESS through a creative, exciting and practical curriculum, which generates a love of, and interest in learning, and a resilience and hope which supports us through challenging times.


Great value is placed on pupils’ self ESTEEM which is developed through a positive and motivated attitude to learning, a healthy lifestyle, good social skills, self-discipline and a positive self-image.


We promote the highest standards of ACHIEVEMENT in all areas of the curriculum and help all pupils to fulfil their potential regardless of gender, race or ability.


We foster RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY for all by establishing good relations between the school, home and community. Pupils are taught respect for themselves, others and the environment. They are also taught to take full responsibility for their own choices and responsibility for themselves and their community.


We encourage TRUTH and honesty in all aspects of school life – relationships, work and the curriculum and learn to trust and accept others’ individuality and uniqueness.


We develop SPIRITUALITYandSERVICE so that calm, quiet, reflective times which support deep thought are part of school life and beauty is appreciated. We promote a service culture that reflects our duty to support and show compassion to all members of the community and not just ourselves.
