More Information

At Hayle Academy the student welfare system is designed to provide a caring and structured environment to help all our students achieve their academic potential and to help them develop as considerate and responsible young people. We take the welfare of each child seriously because we recognise that social and emotional well-being is pre-requisite for good learning.

We are fortunate to have an on-site Integrated Health Centre, one of only three in Cornwall, from which all our student support services operate. These include our full time Support Officer and 2 Key Stage Support Assistants as well as many professionals from other external support services. These professionals can work with students here on site and save on valuable school time.

However, at the heart of a successful secondary school experience is a strong home-school-student relationship which has to be based on good communication. We constantly strive to ensure that we follow our academy motto of “Proud To Be Hayle” and are always looking to improve the communication systems we have; we welcome ideas from parents and students if there is something we could be doing better.

As with any large organisation Hayle Community School has a series of policies and procedures that help clarify the way we operate.  Some of these are statutory, some are advisory and some are individual to our school. A full set is available at the school but on this website we have placed those policies that are most frequently requested.

Policies are reviewed regularly by the Governing Body, some annually and some on a two or three year cycle. The most up-to-date versions are included here.

Should you have any queries about any of these policies or any other areas of school practice please contact us through the contact page on this website.

This is the first set of results under the new GCSE framework. The syllabus for the Maths, English and English Literature GCSEs has changed considerably both in terms of topics covered, the amount of material and the level of difficulty. In some subjects content that was previously AS level is now in the new GCSEs. There is no longer any coursework element, and all exams are now taken at the end of Year 11 with no modules being sat during the course. And finally, the grading of GCSEs in these subjects are changing from letters (A*-G) to numbers (9-1).

For this year letter grades are being used for other subjects. Next year, 2018, will see the majority of remaining subjects move to numbers, too.

Once again Hayle School students have done themselves proud and achieved some outstanding results. All of the achievements are remarkable and are the product of their commitment. We believe that a number of factors have contributed to all this success of which the hard work of the students themselves, the support of their parents and the skill and dedication of our teachers are the most significant.

Hayle School has continued to achieve a positive trajectory of examination results for the last 5 years, and will seek to build on this achievement.

DfE Website

Hayle Academy is committed to providing a full educational experience for ALL students.

We believe that, if students are to benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum in which they achieve their full potential, good attendance is crucial. Any problems that impede full attendance will be identified and addressed as quickly as possible.

If your child is absent from school, for any reason, please contact our Attendance Officer (Mrs K Le Bretton) on 01736 800556 or email on  It is important that you inform the school as early as possible, on each day that your child is absent.

Hayle school uses the funding from the Pupil Premium Grant to support all vulnerable young people to achieve their full potential. We offer an extensive package of internal and external support through our Inclusion and Student Support Teams as well as targeted intervention across all subject areas where support is needed to remove barriers to learning.

For parents/guardians wishing to find out more about whether this grant applies to them and their son/daughter or if you would like assistance with your application please contact Mrs Gutheridge by clicking here.

Our  Supporting Success evening is vital as students enter into their final year. Hopefully, parents then feel empowered to work together in supporting their child so they can maximise their potential.

The presentation contains updates on new course structures, the grading system (9-1), advice on study support and exam practice as well as key dates of assessments.

We have always enjoyed excellent support from parents and we thank you in advance for working with us.
