Hayeswood First School

About Us

Hayeswood First School is situated in Cutlers Place in the Colehill area of Wimborne. We are a community school taking children between the ages of 4 and 9 years. The children transfer at the end of year 4 from Hayeswood to St Michael's Middle School, Colehill. 

Hayeswood First School is one of 17 schools that form Initio Learning Trust. It was formerly part of Wimborne Academy Trust.

We are open from 8.40am and school starts at 8.55am. The end of the afternoon session for the children is 3.20pm. This amounts to 33 hours 20 minutes each week.

The school was built in 1972. It has been well maintained and successfully adapted to meet changing needs over the years. We are lucky enough to have a generous allocation of outside space, including 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 space to support pupils with additional needs as required.
