Welcome to High Hazels...

Welcome to High Hazels!

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 brand new, state of the art nursery, equipped to offer up to 30 hours of free early learning for children aged between 2 and 3 years old who 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 and offer an exciting, knowledge-based curriculum filled with fantastic opportunities to engage, enthuse and inspire our young 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) in January 2015, the academy is flourishing. We are very proud of the vibrant, respectful and inclusive learning environment that we provide for all of our children and as a United Learning academy, we benefit from close working relationships with other schools and academies from across the group both regionally and nationally. Our regional cluster includes schools from Barnsley, Manchester and Silverdale. High Hazels also enjoys a particularly strong relationship with our excellent local United Learning secondary schools - Sheffield Park and Springs Academies - with whom we share some administrative, estates and modern foreign languages (MFL) teaching support. Together, we aim to bring out the ‘Best in everyone’ in all that we do.


As a United Learning school, we are also committed to providing our children with an Education with Character - #EducationwithCharacter. Whilst we have a very strong focus on building firm foundations for learning and nurturing the important skills of English, Maths and Computing, here at High Hazels Academy we believe that there is more to a good education. We provide a breadth of opportunities and experiences which seek to make school an enjoyable, fun and exciting experience and our curriculum and enrichment programme is overflowing with opportunities to try something new and develop talents and skills. No two days are the same and our pupils are constantly introduced to new and different experiences, designed to prepare them for the next stages of their school life.


As a Sheffield school, we are proud members of Sheffield South East Learning Partnership (SSELP), our local schools learning partnership. This allows us to influence and enrich our local communities, contributing to and benefitting from the sharing of educational expertise and resource across the city.


Our website contains a wide variety of information about this academy, its curriculum and provision for children and families. For parents of children already in our school, it also contains details of school events, year group newsletters and homework challenges too! 


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 I cordially invite you to 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 an appointment, please contact us on 0114 244 2189 or at enquiries@highhazelsacademy.org.uk
