Hayeswood First School

About Us

Hayeswood First School is situated in Cutlers Place in the Colehill area of Wimborne. We are a Dorset Local Education Authority School taking children between the ages of 4 and 9 years. The children transfer from Hayeswood to St Michael's Middle School, Colehill.

The school was built in 1972 and has been well maintained. We are lucky enough to have an excellent amount of outside space, providing a large tarmac playground with seating and picnic benches, a playing field with an outdoor classroom and play equipment, a nature trail, a newly developed fenced pond area and a wildlife area. 

The Reception Class have a further large outside space with a covered area so they are able to play and learn outside at all times of the year. This area is also accessed by the Year 1 children. There are raised beds to enable the children to grow vegetables.

Inside, we have 5 classrooms, an IT suite, a well-stocked library, a hall and a room which is used for group work, cookery and music lessons. We also have a small, quiet  room dedicated for our Emotional Literacy Support Assistants to use. Each class teacher is supported by a teaching assistant every morning. Our IT technician is also one of our Higher Level Teaching Assistants and she works with groups in the classrooms and on the computers.
