Havelock Academy

Our goal is to provide excellent opportunities in an open, positive and purposeful climate for all to achieve excellence, become lifelong learners and responsible, successful, well rounded citizens.


Admissions to the Academy are governed by the Academy's Admissions policy which is reviewed annually.

Broadly, admissions priority is given to those living in the Havelock catchment and thereafter following the hierarchy of criteria laid out in the policy.

Parents who live outside the catchment and who wish particularly to access our curriculum should contact Mrs Burgess, on 01472 602000, to register their interest.

The current admission numbers for Year 7 - 11 are:

  • Year 7 is 220.
  • Year 8 is 200.
  • Year 9 is 200.
  • Year 10 is 192.
  • Year 11 is 192.

The academy will from time to time host Open Days. The dates for these will be published in the academy events section of this website. The academy recognises, however, that the best time and way to see it in action is to visit on an ordinary working day. The Academy will be pleased to hear from any prospective or current parent, friend, or associate of the Academy in order to arrange a visit.
