Welcome to Hawley Primary School

Welcome to Hawley Primary School’s website. We are really pleased that you are taking the time to look at our website to find out about our school. We are at a very exciting time in our history as, after over 60 years as an infant school we have returned to being an all through primary school, albeit significantly smaller than we were in 1874.

Hawley Primary School is a happy and diverse community, where we retain our ethos of working in partnership with parents to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children and their families feel welcomed, valued and respected. We strive to ensure that our pupils benefit equally well from the breadth, depth and variety of opportunities that are offered to all learners, who are enthusiastic and excited about their learning.

Our principle aim is that by delivering a creative curriculum, which offers opportunities to develop curiosity, resilience, self- discipline, collaboration, and imagination we will enable all of our pupils to become self –motivated lifelong learners who are willing and confident enough to take on and rise to new challenges and opportunities for learning.

We are ambitious for all of our pupils and with the support of our Governing Body, we work hard to set and achieve high standards. We believe that a thematic approach to learning, practical experiences and enriching and creative opportunities enable children to learn and thrive.

Hawley Primary School is at an exciting phase in its history, and we are looking forward to continuing to welcome all new pupils, families and visitors to our happy, inclusive school as we grow.

What People Say

About Us

In November 2016 Hawley Infants School, ‘The village school in Camden’, bid a farewell to its tiny Victorian building in the heart of Camden Town and moved into a brand new building in a new, nearby, location. The move enabled the school to expand from a tiny single from entry infants’ school, into an all through primary school. And so began a new chapter in the history of Hawley.

Hawley Primary School remains a single form entry school, with one class per year group. In 2016 we opened our first junior class and we will continue to grow, year on year until 2019 when those very same children will become our first Year 6 class.

Aims and Ethos

At Hawley, we want every child and every family in our school community to feel welcomed, valued and involved. We have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and of their attitudes to learning. We provide an environment in which children feel secure and are therefore able to thrive, develop self-confidence and take responsibility for their own actions.
