Halewood Academy students, parents and staff joined together for our inaugural Race for Life to raise funds for Cancer Research. We are delighted to announce that we have raised the amazing total of £3079.62! This is an incredible achievement! Over 200 students, parents and staff ran the 3km course around the Academy on Friday 31 March. Back in February Year 8 student and Junior Leadership Team member, Lillie Beth Kelly, approached senior staff with the idea of supporting a charity that is fighting a disease that affects more and more of us each year. Lillie Beth gave a presentation in Staff Briefing to enlist the support of the staff and then gave assemblies to all year groups to raise awareness of the charity and of the event she had organised.Read more »

Welcome to Halewood! - posted 21st Apr
Halewood Academy staff and Governors are delighted that September 2017 will see the arrival of over 220 students in Year 7. With the current figure at 221 it will be our largest year group. Derek Darlington, Halewood Academy Chair of Governors said, "I would like to thank all those year 6 parents who have elected to send their sons/daughters to Halewood in September. At present the predicted intake stands at 221 which is a huge endorsement of the Academy and potentially could see Halewood as an over subscribed school. Thank you for sharing our vision of a safe, rapidly improving and growing school as a member of the Wade Deacon Trust."Read more »
