We are a Community Primary School, situated on a busy campus. Our school, Leapfrogs Nursery, the Youth Centre and the Crediton Arts Centre all share a large site, and we benefit from maintaining strong partnerships with these other organisations.
Hayward's School has served the local community since 1858, when it was first opened in the old buildings adjacent to the present school site. It has always been very much a part of the history and local community in the rural town of Crediton.
The school moved to its present location in 1937, and in 2003 benefited from a major rebuilding programme.
We feel that the children at Hayward's not only benefit from the superb accommodation, but are being taught by committed and motivated staff with high quality resources to support their work.
Our staff, coupled with supportive parents and governors, contribute greatly to the success of our school. We all work together with a common purpose - to ensure that our children are happy and successful in their primary years.
If you would like to visit us in person, we are always delighted to welcome visitors, and would be glad to give you a tour of our school. Please see the 'Contact Us' page for details of how to get in touch, and where to find us.
Our office is staffed from 8.40am each weekday, or you may like to leave a message on the answer machine, and our admin staff will return your call as soon as possible. Full details about our school are available in our prospectus which we would be happy to send you.
