Halsnead School

Halsnead is a school in Whiston with a long history and tradition. Although not a church school, Halsnead was first opened in the old Church Hall on Dragon Lane in 1872. In 1940, the school moved into the present building and in 1968 a totally separate Junior school building was opened.

Following a disastrous fire in the Junior building in 1990, it was decided to incorporate the Junior department into an extension of the original Infant building so that all the children would again be together on one site.

We expect children to enjoy school life, to work hard, to develop respect for one another and their property, and to keep the few school rules that are designed to ensure that every child can learn effectively in an orderly community.
We pride ourselves on the high standards of work that Halsnead children achieve in all areas of their education and this is reflected in our motto "STRIVE TO ACHIEVE".

It is hoped that this web site will not exclude personal contact between home and school, since the greater the co-operation, the greater the success of the children. The Headteacher and all the staff share joint responsibility with you, the parents, for the education of your child and invite you to contact them at any time that you have any problems.
