The Havelock Schools are places where each individual is encouraged to shine and develop to their full potential on their own path to greatness. Staff and pupils alike are proud to be part of our successful schools. We believe that everybody is unique and our role is to cherish and celebrate individuality, whilst working together as part of a learning community. Everybody can succeed through determination, hard work and encouragement which is why learning warrior behaviours are so important to our philosophy – warriors stick at it when the going gets tough and ‘never, ever, ever give up’. We also believe that learning happens when we find things tricky. If we could do everything easily we wouldn’t need to go to school! That’s when it’s even more important to show your warrior qualities.

As a federated Infant and Junior School we cover ages 4 to 11 years and the schools combined can accommodate approximately 630 children in a 3 class intake from Reception to Year 6. From September 2013 The Havelock Schools gained academy status and is part of the Pathfinder Schools Trust. This is a group of 8 local schools who work closely together to bring the best education possible for all the children in Desborough, Rothwell and surrounding areas.

In January 2024 Havelock Infant School was inspected and successfully maintained their OFSTED ‘outstanding’ status. In June 2023 Havelock Junior School was inspected and successfully maintained their OFSTED ‘good’ rating.

Havelock Schools are the first step in the most important journey of your child’s life – their education. It is through education that we become responsible citizens in today’s society and realise potential opportunities that are on offer. We, as a staff, recognise this responsibility and ensure that the children in our care enjoy their first few years of education and treasure happy memories of their time with us.

If you would like to know more about our school please contact us to arrange a visit.
