Planning for Partial School Opening

On 23 June we sent home emails from address  asking parents to confirm their child's name and their preferred contact email. This was done to ensure as we move towards launching a new Parent App, we are complying with required Data Protection regulations. You should have received one email for each child you have attending Haygrove School. PLEASE CHECK YOUR JUNK/SPAM folders if you have not yet responded to this email. 

If you have not received this email, please contact the school on 01278 455531.

Only parents who confirm these details will be able to access the new Parent App.

Thank you for you cooperation.


We have issued a new Home Schooling Timetable to help our Year 7,8 and 9 students plan their home learning.

If you are a key worker and require childcare for your son or daughter at Haygrove School because you have no other safe childcare provision, please email stating your child’s name, registration group, parent's name, parent's occupation and the days/times you intend to send your child to school.

English is vital for communicating with others in school and in the wider world, and is fundamental to learning in all curriculum subjects. Through the study of English our students develop the speaking, listening, reading and writing skills that they will need to participate in society and employment. Furthermore, they explore how to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and learn how to communicate with others confidently and effectively.

Looking at the patterns, structures, origins and conventions of English helps us understand how language works. Armed with this understanding, students can choose and adapt what they say and write in different situations, as well as appreciate and interpret the choices made by other writers and speakers.

By encouraging our students to read a wide range of books and texts that reflect the experiences of people from many countries and times, they will develop a sense of cultural identity and become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction and media texts. They gain access to a world of knowledge and hopefully lay the foundation for a life-long love of reading.

At Haygrove School students are set according to ability for Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 and 9) and Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11).


English Intervention 

Where additional support is required, students, particularly in Year 7, recieve additional intervention via small group or one-to-one sessions. 

We run a number of activities aimed at building confidence in English such as the Year 7 Spelling Bee and the Year 8 Debating competition. Our students also enter, and frequently are awarded certificates and prizes, in the local Brunner Prize Creative Writing competition held by Richard Huish Sixth Form College.

Trips to the theatre, both locally and nationally, are organised as part of our whole school Enrichment programme and this year we are planning on taking Year 7 students to visit the Harry Potter Studios in London.
