On behalf of all the children, staff and Trustees, I would like to warmly welcome you to the Hawes Side Academy.

Hawes Side Academy is a three form entry primary academy situated in the south shore of Blackpool. “Hawes Side Primary School” was originally opened on the 12th January 1937 converting to an Academy in September 2012. In the 2015-16 academic year we were lucky enough to benefit from the Priority Building Schools Programme and our brand new state of the art building was opened in November 2016. Over the last 80 years Hawes Side Academy has become an integral part of the local community and has earned a reputation for providing an excellent and rounded education for children in the south shore of Blackpool.

As an academy we value our partnerships with other schools and academies locally, nationally and internationally and are passionate about raising standards in order to give our pupils the best possible start to their education and life.

We also value our partnership between home and school and are continually developing ways to enable and enhance this.

At Hawes Side Academy we want the very best for all our pupils. We aim to ensure this through the careful planning of an innovative, relevant and exciting curriculum with both a local and global dimension that meets the needs of all the children. Pupil voice and close links with parents, families and the wider community help us to provide stimulating and creative learning experiences that put the children at the very heart of the learning process.

Our strong partnerships, and our commitment to the professional development of staff, ensure teaching, learning and assessment are of the highest quality. Through all of the above we endeavour to live out our motto "Community, Learning and Creativity in Harmony."
