We would like to advise parents to, if possible, walk to our Open Evening on Wednesday 26 September from 7 pm. If travel by car is essential, please allow plenty of time as there could be congestion in the area due to the start of the Bridgwater Fair and on-going roadworks on Durleigh Road. Access to Durleigh Road is possible via Woodbury Road and Oakfield Road. There will be limited parking available on the school site, but please be patient and courteous as you arrive so that the area is safe for everyone. There may be parking available in surrounding streets.
Thank you for your co-operation.

We are delighted you are considering our school for your child. Haygrove is an excellent secondary school where pupils make good progress and achieve outstanding examination results.
Below are links to some of the important information you need to make the right decision for your family:
Months of hard work have paid off for our students who are celebrating superb GCSE results despite predictions that this year, across England, students might find it harder to obtain critical pass rates in English and Maths. Overall, 68% of Haygrove students gained grades 9 – 4 in both GCSE Mathematics and GCSE English which is an increase on last year’s pass rate, even though the 2018 exams were considered more challenging! Despite the introduction of a tougher revised examination system, 3% of all grades were at grade 9 which exceeds the widely predicted expectation that only 2% of students nationally would gain this new top grade.
In the most critical subjects, 77% of this year’s Haygrove leavers achieved a standard pass (9-4) in English and 78% in Mathematics. 74% gained the same in Combined Science, and of those who took GCSEs in Chemistry, Physics and Biology, a stunning 91% achieved grade 9 – 4 in all three.
The top achievers were Wanessa Chwiedacz, Rachel Tier, Liam Croucher, Georgia Tier and Niamh Weaver, who collectively achieved 31 grade 9s out of their total of 50 GCSE entries. Further high achievers included Madeleine Rossiter, Maisy Day, Megan Lake, Mikolaj Skakuj, Livvy Payne, Lucy Birch, Sam Coles and Eleanor Newman.
Head teacher Mrs Canham said when the results were announced “What a super result for our students! It has been a challenge this year due to the changes introduced nationally and tougher exams, but I am delighted that our Year 11s have worked hard, revised thoroughly and achieved the results they truly deserve. Our staff have supported them throughout their journey and I am sure I speak for the students and their families when I say how proud I am of them for their commitment over the past two years. We wish all our students well in their future studies.”
