A very warm welcome to Haltwhistle Academy, part of the Wise Academies family of schools. 

We are a friendly and vibrant 1 1/2 form entry primary academy in Haltwhistle, with 260 children aged between 3 and 11 years old. At Haltwhistle Academy we create exceptional early education experiences for all our children.  Our curriculum and our teaching approaches are designed to establish a love of learning, encourage creativity and develop young enquiring minds. We equip our children with the essential skills to become successful learners for life, and with this in mind, we take every opportunity to connect with our local community to make learning real, relevant and inspirational for our pupils.

 We are proud of our culture of care, our sense of community, respect of and for others which is notable around school and which is often commented upon by our visitors.   Our strong inclusive ethos, encourages every child to be confident, to overcome barriers and to achieve well. Our children are encouraged to value their individuality, celebrate and respect their differences and to work together as a community as they learn to become responsible citizens.  We set high standards for ourselves, believing in the values of respect, hard work and achievement for all. 

 Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our partnership with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together and we ask that parents support their child throughout their learning journey through our school. 

 Haltwhistle Academy is a special place to learn and grow.  If your child is joining us for the first time we welcome you and look forward to a happy and successful partnership with you over the coming years. 

We welcome visits to our school – every day is open day here!  We like our parents to see and feel the nurturing ethos, and seeing our school in action is the best way to experience this. 

If you would like any more information about the academy, or to arrange a visit, please contact our office manager, Mrs Shirley Phillips 01434 320491.
