Welcome to High Hazels...

Thank you for visiting our website, which I hope helps to give you an insight into the vibrant life here at High Hazels Academy and what, I feel, makes it the fantastic school that it is. 

High Hazels Academy is comprised of two schools, situated in Darnall, Sheffield. At High Hazels, a nursery-infant school and separate junior school operate on a daily basis as a single, primary academy. Both are three-form entry schools which makes High Hazels a larger than average primary provision. We also have a lovely nursery department, equipped to offer up to 30 hours of free early learning for children enrolled with us.


A visit to High Hazels Academy will reveal our distinct ethos- we are highly ambitious for all of our children. We nurture independent and creative thinkers, confident to contribute as citizens and skilled as lifelong learners. We are committed to excellence and strive to work in collaboration with families, the community and others to ensure that every child achieves their potential.

Since joining United Learning (UL), this academy is flourishing. We are very proud of the vibrant, respectful and inclusive learning environment offered to children here.


As a United Learning academy, we benefit from working in close partnership with other schools and academies regionally and nationally. Our regional schools cluster includes Worsbrough Bank End and Hunningley Primary Schools in Barnsley. These two schools joined United Learning in the summer of 2017. High Hazels also enjoys a particularly close working relationship with our excellent local UL secondary provision, Sheffield Park Academy.

Together, UL Academies aim to bring the ‘Best in everyone’ to all that we do.


As a Sheffield school, we proudly continue to be active members of SSELP, our local schools learning partnership. This allows us to influence and enrich our local communities, contribute to and benefit from the sharing of expertise across our city.


Reflecting both Sheffield and our United Learning identity, High Hazels offers an exciting curriculum filled with fantastic opportunities to engage, enthuse and inspire our young learners. 


The website contains a wide variety of information about this academy and its curriculum. For parents of children already in our school, I hope that you find what you are looking for here on the website, but if not, please don’t hesitate to contact the office and my team will be happy to help. 


If you are a prospective parent and would like to find out more, then please do arrange a visit! Do try to visit us when the children are busy learning with their teachers- High Hazels children are our greatest advocates!  To make a suitable appointment please contact us on 0114 244 2189 or at enquiries@highhazelsacademy.org.uk.
