Welcome to Higher Failsworth Primary School

Centenary logoHigher Failsworth Primary School is a Community School which serves pupils from 3 to 11 years of age. There are currently 429 pupils registered at the school (January 2014). Our purpose at Higher Failsworth Primary School is, by working with parents and the community, to create a happy and enriching learning environment for all. We hope to provide our children with a sound foundation for their future life by celebrating their achievements, fostering their self-esteem, helping them fulfil their potential, respecting their differences and encouraging kindness, consideration and respect.

We hope you find the information on our website useful. Prospective parents are always welcome to make an appointment to look around school. 

This is our centenary year and there will be many exciting events during the year including an open day for past pupils and staff including a display of photographs of the school and pupils throughout the years, a Centenary Fair and a Centenary party for current pupils and parents.
