Welcome from Mrs Ann Plant, Headteacher.

Hawthorn Park is a school that acknowledges the central role of high quality basic skills of numeracy, literacy and information and communication technology. Our aim is to enable our children to make progress beyond what would be expected, given consideration of initial attainment and background factors.

Hawthorn Park Lower School has held the Basic Skills Quality Mark for primary schools since 1998. Upon expiry in 2001, it was awarded for the second time. We also received the DfES School Achievement award in 2001 for the excellent value-added work.

We are a socially inclusive school welcoming all abilities, race, creed, gender and disability. Equal opportunities are given to all. We provide a purposeful, stimulating, emotionally stable environment where the children wish to come and learn. Many Out of School Hours clubs are run. We wish our children to develop an interest, leisure activity or sport, which will remain with them in adult life. We seek to develop our children’s ability to think, to adapt and to take responsibility for actions based on reasoned choices.

Hawthorn Park welcomes children aged 4 to 11 years old. We have a Nursery Unit, a Reception unit and two classes per year group through our school.

When pupils graduate from our school, they can go onto Hawthorn Park Sports School, which takes pupils aged 10 to  18. It places heavy emphasis on sports and physical education, and has many programmes and scholarship schemes in place to help its over 16s train to become gym instructors, personal trainers, or pursue a career in athletics or physiotherapy.

For more information regarding aims, organisation, admissions and curriculum, please refer to our school brochure section. We hope you enjoy visiting our newly developed website and would appreciate you signing in. Thank you.
