About Us

We are based in the former mining village of Haydock within the large Merseyside town of St Helens. We are excited and confident about Outwood Academy Haydock's journey to Outstanding as part of the Outwood Family.

We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

The Academy became part of the Outwood Family of Schools in 2022 and as a member of the Outwood Family we believe in putting Students First, raising standards and transforming lives.
