Message from our Head Teacher

Welcome to Haydonleigh Primary School’s website and to a school where ‘I am talented, together we are amazing’ underpins our philosophy.

We provide a secure and happy environment where the work is varied and challenging and every child and adult is valued. We set the children and ourselves high standards to enable every child to develop his or her potential to the full and become confident learners.

All parents are very welcome at Haydonleigh, and we see home and school working together as very important for your child.

Our website will give you a flavour of our school’s aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we have gained and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you'd like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Around the World in 19 Classes


‘Around The World in 19 Classes’

Thank you to all our globe-trotters who helped make our exhibition last term such a success, as we travelled ‘Around the World in 19 Classes!’ We were overwhelmed with how many pupils and their families attended the event, which celebrated cultures from across the globe. We hope you enjoyed your journey as much as we did – what an amazing school we are all part of! A special ‘thank you’ to all the parents, siblings and grandparents who came in to share their talents and support the children in their travels.

If you didn’t make it on the day, don’t worry! Here are a few photos of our journey, or why not read the Swindon Advertiser article about our epic adventure to find out more?

“Even though the weather was wet and gloomy, we enjoyed the sights and sounds of lots of countries. The locals were friendly and helpful and although some places were crowded, there was a vibrant atmosphere! We had lots of facts to share when we got home. We’d definitely book again!”

“What a wonderful experience we had walking around the world… you are all very talented and we are amazed with all the hard work put in.”

 “What a good way to improve the kid’s knowledge and knowing about different cultures.”
