Talk to us
We encourage our parents and carers to get involved with their child's education as much as they can and ask that they support learning outside of school, for example by encouraging their children to read regularly, by talking to their children about what they are reading and by checking homework.
We always welcome feedback from parents and will respond promptly to any questions or concerns. Should you wish to speak to a member of staff, please contact the relevant Year Manager. Details can be found on our Contact Us page.
For prospective parents we hold an open evening in the autumn, however please feel free to contact the school at any time throughout the year if you are interested in your child attending The Halifax Academy. For parents looking for further information about primary admissions, please contact the Primary Headteacher via our Contact Us page.
