  • Our school is situated in the seaside town of Paignton, which alongside Torquay and Brixham forms the English Riviera. 
  • Hayes School is situated approximately 1 mile from the town centre opposite a natural woodland and within a pleasant residential area. 
  • There are approximately 440 children on roll including part time nursery children. The children are mixed ability, two classes per year group.
