heads 0001 Ann Davey photographHavelock Schools are a place where each individual is encouraged to shine and develop to their full potential and staff and pupils alike are proud to be a part of our schools. We believe that everybody is unique and our role is to cherish that individuality, whilst working together as part of a learning community.  We know that everybody can succeed through hard work and ‘staying power’ 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 finding things tricky is an important part of learning – if we could all do everything easily we wouldn’t need to go to school!  That’s when it’s even more important to show your warrior determination.

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

In March 2016 Havelock Infant School was inspected and gained an OFSTED ‘outstanding’ status.  Havelock Junior School was inspected in July 2017 and achieved a ‘good’ rating – please look at the OFSTED reports on our website for further detail

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. We, as a staff, recognise this responsibility and wish that the children in our care enjoy the beginning of their learning journey 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.
