Further information for families 

You can search for primary, secondary and special needs schools in Enfield and across England by visiting GOV.UK. Here you can access Ofsted reports, information on school performance and approximate home-to-school distances. These are only a guide, as the council uses its own specialist systems to measure distances when allocating places in Enfield.

Heron Hall Academy

Woodpecker Hall Academy is part of a family of schools run by North Star Community Trust.

Our secondary school is Heron Hall Academy.

With great GCE results for the fourth year in a row, an outstanding headteacher and a very committed teaching and learning team, we are very proud of the school. We hope our parents will consider whether Heron Hall would be the right choice for their family.

The school was recently given the Bronze award at the prestigious Pearson's UK Secondary school of the Year competition.

Heron Hall is holding its Open Evening for families on Tuesday, 5 October at 5.30pm - 7.30pm. 

The school also has a prospectus where you can find out more. Read it here.
