There has been a school on our Durleigh Road site since Dr Morgan’s Grammar School opened its doors to Bridgwater’s boys. Dr Morgan’s became Haygrove School in 1973 when it also became a co-educational school, welcoming both girls and boys. In 2011 we became an Academy School.
We are proud of our heritage and of our Durleigh Road site, which retains the character of Dr Morgan’s Grammar School but is changing rapidly as we forge ahead with an extensive programme of refurbishment and renovation.

"Our child was doing very well at primary school and we were looking for a school that would encourage academic achievement and had excellent sports provision. So we chose Haygrove."
