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 on 01736 800556 or email on attendanceofficer@hayleacademy.net

It is important that you inform the school as early as possible, on each day that your child is absent.

Dear Parents/Carers,


We are pleased to offer a wide variety of instrumental lessons lead by our independent Piano and Vocal Teacher Mr Taylor, as well as our fabulous team from Cornwall Music Service Trust who offer Brass, String, Guitar, Woodwind and Percussion instruments.


Lessons are organised on a rotating timetable during the school day.

34 lessons will be provided over the academic year.


The cost of these extra-curricular lessons is currently £5.25 per 15 minute group lesson,  £7 per 20 minute lesson (advised) or £14.20 per individual 20 minute lesson for which you will be invoiced (either by Hayle Academy or CMST) at the start of each term. You will be billed for each full term. This is between 10 – 12 lessons per term.


Through Cornwall Music Education Hub (CMEH) we are able to offer subsidy for both instrumental and vocal tuition depending on eligibility.  Please note that these concessions can only apply for one instrument being learnt.


If you would like your child to continue or start receiving these lessons, please complete the Google form link below. If you require your child to learn more than one instrument, you will need to fill the google form twice (per instrument).
