More and more parents are making The Hart School their first choice The Hart School has been empowering young minds for generations.

Proud to be firmly at the heart of the community, it is now an oversubscribed school as more and more parents make it their first choice.

Located on the edge of Cannock Chase, The Hart School is part of Creative Education Trust, which has invested £2million in improving the facilities and the offer of the Penkridge Bank Road school since 2016. With a vision of “We Can, We Will, We Do”, the school’s exam results have also improved annually over the last five years with its pupils celebrating

achieving the highest grades, like fellow students from neighbouring schools in Lichfield and Longdon.


With many Hart pupils going on from its Sixth Form to study at university, including at Oxford, for professional careers, its alumni features Deloitte accountants, BBC producers, midwives, and Rolls Royce and Network Rail engineers.

Helping pupils achieve their career dreams 

Boasting a broad curriculum – it also creates a bespoke curriculum for each Sixth Form intake – the Rugeley school has won high praise from Ofsted for “providing excellent education and developing lifelong learners at the heart of the community”.

Through a strong ethos of preparing pupils for the real world after school, it is incredibly proud of its proven track record of success when it comes to shaping and nurturing pupils to achieve their career dreams with excellent career guidance, business links and a wide range of other opportunities.
