Hawkinge Primary School

The School

Hawkinge Primary School was established in 1879 with a roll of 19 children. As the village developed so the number of children has increased and there are 289 in attendance, the intake area includes the parishes of Hawkinge, Acrise, Swingfield, Densole and Paddlesworth.

School Organisation

The school is designated as a Community Primary School to serve the educational needs of boys and girls from the age of five to eleven. The school is at present organised into 11 classes. These are generally divided into chronological age groups although there may be a certain amount of overlapping according to the numbers involved. All classes are of mixed ability and work is graded according to the needs of the individual child.


At Hawkinge Primary School, we encourage the whole child to reach his or her full potential and acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and values for life.


Our teacher is Ms Thompson. This is what some of 'Squirrels' think of school so far:

  • "School is fun, I like cutting and sticking" (Lucinda)
  • "I like the puppets" (Taylor)
  • "I like going into the outside classroom. I have brought my wellies to school!" (Alex)

This is what we like about school:

Our Teachers are Mrs Bispham and Mrs Dillon.

The penguins class is a mix of year 1 and 2 pupils, who have two teachers - Mrs Bispham and Mrs Dillon and our teaching assistant Mrs Honzik. They have begun the year with a 'getting-to-know -you' theme and will move on to the topic of 'toys' and 'travelling'. The penguins are looking forward to a fun and exciting year, making lots of new friends at school.
