Hayeswood First School

Prospectus and Parents' Handbook


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.

The school was built in 1972 and has been well maintained. We are lucky enough to have a generous 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. Our most recent addition is 'The Den' which is a new room built to support pupils with Emotional Literacy needs.

Our Parents' Handbook gives more detailed information about the approach we take to teaching and learning as well as routine day to day matters. Click below to access the Parents' Handbook.
