As Headteacher I am pleased to welcome you to our website and I hope you find it a useful way of finding out about our fantastic school.

Our vision for Hawkedon Primary School is to be "school of choice" in Wokingham where children learn, have fun and reach their potential.  We have a highly dedicated and experienced team who work tirelessly to ensure that all our children have a highly positive experience at the school.

We are privileged to teach our great children and we value working in partnership with parents.  We have a thriving family centre that supports and guides parents and children and helps all feel part of our unique community.

In October 2014 we were graded by Ofsted as a good school where pupils feel valued and “are proud of their school”.  The inspection team noted that lessons were “planned to interest and engage children”, resulting in “children making good progress in reading, writing and maths”.  We aim to build on these achievements to make Hawkedon even better!

In September 2014 the school was expanded so that it now holds 630 pupils.  Our new modern building is extremely well resourced and a pleasure to be in.

Our website is a celebration of our children’s achievement and will give you an indication of life at Hawkedon and the opportunities open to you and your children.  We welcome visits to the school and we are happy to show you around during the working day.
