Dear Parents/ Carers

Welcome back to all our students and I hope they have enjoyed a restful break in the middle of a busy school term. I am writing to briefly introduce myself to you, as the interim Head of School for Hayle Academy. My name is Mr Daniel Mather and I have been a member of the senior leadership team at Penryn College since 2005. Previously to this role, I worked as a curriculum leader in Cornwall: as Head of English at Fowey Academy and Richard Lander School. I feel very fortunate and privileged to be leading Hayle Academy for the rest of this academic year. 

My first visit to the school was last week and my initial impressions were extremely positive. Already I have had first-hand experience of the wonderful environment at the school and the warmth and dedication of the staff. The students I met were a real credit to the school: they were articulate, polite and proud of their school community. I am convinced that many of the ingredients needed to ensure the success of our students and the school are in place and that with the continued support of Jan Woodhouse and TPAT, the school is strongly positioned to make rapid improvements. I know we are all dedicated to this aim. The support of parents and the community is at the heart of our improvement journey,  so please, if you have feedback for us or ideas that will help us help our children, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to working with you all and to meeting you over the coming weeks. 

Yours faithfully
Mr Dan Mather, Head of School

Study skills and revision aids are a vital part of the preparation for the summer public exams. This support will help our students perform at their very best when it really matters.

We wish to invite you to attend an important Year 11 Supporting Success evening for students and their parents/carers, taking place on Thursday, 3rd October from 6pm until 7.30 pm.  At a critical time, this will be an invaluable opportunity for you to informally discuss your child’s progress and consider ways you can help your child to revise for their GCSE exams, with a particular focus on maths, English, science, and humanities. The evening will include subject-based workshops led by our Heads of Faculty.

In addition, we appreciate that during the exam periods, some Year 11s find revision emotionally and practically challenging. With this in mind, we are fortunate to have been able to engage a speaker, Dr Martijn van der Spoel, to talk to parents about supporting effective learning on the same evening. Dr. van der Spoel is a chartered psychologist, who specialises in using the mind as an effective tool for life learning. He will work with students throughout the day about how they can learn to balance focus, motivation and study behaviour and then in the evening he will talk about ways in which parents can guide and support this through creative and constructive guidance. The presentation has a significant, but accessible, emphasis on the psychology behind the strategies of learning. Both students and parents should leave the sessions not only with the “how” but also with the “why” of effective learning.

At the evening you will be provided with:

  • Practical advice and guidance on how to support your child as the GCSE exams fast approach.
  • A personalised revision pack of materials, resources and homework revision tasks to take away to support revision at home.
  • Information on how to use our revision apps.
  • An overview of what after-school support sessions are available per subject.
  • Opportunities for you to ask questions and to look at the expectations of the exams by reviewing past papers.

You have the opportunity to book onto the revision workshops applicable to your son/daughter via our online booking system. Each workshop will last for approximately twenty minutes and will be delivered a number of times throughout the evening.

Workshops in advance and the booking system will remain open until midday on Thursday 3rd October.

Please visit to book your workshops or there is a link from the school website Login with the following information: Student’s First Name, Student’s Surname: Date of Birth

If you do not have access to the internet, please contact the school office who will be happy to book workshops on your behalf. Alternatively, your son/daughter will be able to make appointments with Mrs Lock.

We look forward to seeing you at this highly beneficial revision support evening so that we can continue to work together to help to ensure the best possible results for your son/ daughter in the forthcoming GCSE exams.
