Our Approach

Haywood Academy is a trusted and well respected school that is consistently over-subscribed – a testament to our success!

We are a member of The Schools Co-operative Society, and as such are a community academy, governed by local people for the benefit of young people in the local community.

At Haywood you become part of a family, not just a school, in which everyone is valued as an individual and is also expected to make a worthwhile contribution to the family.

Our Academy motto is ‘Inspiring Creativity and Achievement’. We aim to raise aspirations, expectations and achievement for all our students in a happy, caring and successful learning environment.

Our mission is to develop highly qualified and skilled young adults who achieve to the best of their ability, who are active citizens and who are fully committed to supporting both their local and the global community.

  • The Academy closes to students at 12.30 pm on Friday 17th December and reopens on Wednesday 5th January 2022. Wishing all of our students and their families a lovely festive holiday.
