About Us

Welcome to Hoylandswaine Primary School

At Hoylandswaine Primary School we aim to create an environment which is stable, caring and stimulating for your child. We expect each child to develop to their full potential in every way during the time spent within our school and work hard to deliver a personalised, educational, social and emotional programme to ensure we meet the needs of every child.


Our school vision is below. This has been developed with the children, staff, parents and governors. It reflects what we feel our school embodies in its daily work with the children. Every one of these words has been chosen for a specific reason and they are all important to us in explaining the way that we approach teaching and learning at Hoylandswaine:

It is our belief that to achieve the best education for your child, a partnership between parents, pupils and staff is essential. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the life of the school, and their support is welcome at all times. Although opportunities are provided during the year to consult with the class teacher on an individual basis, the staff are always willing to meet parents to discuss children's progress and individual needs.

Please visit the school and see us in action for yourself! We look forward to meeting you.

Mr Steve Honeyman

Acting Headteacher


General information about Hoylandswaine Primary School

The school has been educating children from Hoylandswaine and the surrounding area since the mid-19th century with recorded education at the current setting from 1863 and has seen many changes over the years.

We offer children a 7-year course of study through Foundation Stage 2, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum.

The majority of the children start full time in September.

In September 2021, we had 117 children on roll. The children are taught in five classes, in mixed age groups. The structure of these classes may change depending on the number of pupils in each age range.
