About us

A Welcome Message from the Headteacher, Julie Clubley

Hawthorn Community Primary is a school where everyone is valued and helped to achieve their full potential.  Staff and pupils alike are proud to be a part of our school and I am extremely honoured to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care. 

The children at Hawthorn are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. We believe that children should be curious about their learning, and through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories.

We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.

All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique and it is the feel of being like a ‘traditional village school’ close to Kettering town centre that makes us special.

Entering school for the first time is a key moment in every child’s life and as a staff we recognise that building a good partnership with parents/carers is essential.  We understand that it is important that you choose a school where you feel confident your child will be cared for, valued and most importantly will be happy. Your child will then be ready to learn.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities.  If you would like to know more about our school please contact us to arrange a visit.
