Welcome to Hawksmoor School
A warm welcome to Hawksmoor School.
At Hawksmoor, we believe every child has the right to have their thinking ignited. We believe in providing them with a challenging curriculum and experiences that enable them to discover their gifts within and those within others. We believe in our children having control over their choices and to be free thinking, considerate and successful members of our society. Their resilience and character is key to them achieving their potential and we design a unique curriculum to reflect this.
Hawksmoor is a friendly, happy and exciting school in the heart of Thamesmead. Our school is lucky to be part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, an area steeped in history, with the Thames River within walking distance and direct access into central London. As well as this, we are fortunate to be next door to ‘Tump 53’ a fantastic outdoor learning centre for our children, run by the Peabody Trust. Exciting housing projects are buzzing locally with the opening of the ‘Crossrail’ link making our access into central London even easier. Our children are able, therefore, to experience a rich, balanced and real curriculum. We are committed to the success of every child in our school and we work tirelessly to ensure every child succeeds.
This year we are looking at how we extend, deepen and challenge thinking in all our classrooms. Our children are challenged within a dialogic setting where they explore the world around them through high quality stimuli, questioning and purposeful outcomes. We are committed to up to date, quality assured research informing our approaches and are constantly reflecting on implications on our philosophy and practise. Our Governors work closely with us to ensure the best possible opportunities are being created for our children.
