Welcome to Halwin School

Confidence, Aspiration, Resilience, Enjoyment

A very warm welcome to Halwin Primary School, part of the Crofty Education Trust. We are situated in the village of Porkellis, north east of Helston, in the heart of the old Wendron Mining District.

My name is Mrs Alexandra Carr and I am the Head of School. As a small rural school, we pride ourselves on our kind and caring atmosphere and our close partnership with parents and the local community. We make the most of our location and outdoor space for children to play, explore and learn.

Our CARE values: Confidence, Aspiration, Resilience and Enjoyment, underpin everything that we do, ensuring our children develop a love of learning to reach their full potential.

Whether you’re an existing parent or a new parent looking for the right school for your child, I hope through browsing our website you find everything you need. Please feel free to contact the school directly if you have any queries, require further information or you would like to arrange a visit.

Best wishes,

Mrs A Carr


My name is Mrs Linda May, and I am thrilled to be the Executive Headteacher of this school.  I am responsible for 5 closely located schools in the Helston area; all with a unique identity and yet shared desire to offer our children the best possible start to their educational journey.

I am ably supported by an experienced Senior Teacher who is our Head of School, and a dedicated and talented staff that have the same high expectations as you do for your child.  We believe in a close working relationship between teachers and parents is essential to success and we look forward to welcoming you to our many special events.

I firmly believe that every child deserves to have a happy and fulfilling primary education.  I also know that children learn best through an interesting and engaging curriculum. Together, we will strive to make learning enjoyable, varied and challenging so that all children achieve well and are motivated to do their very best.

I look forward to our paths crossing and sharing some of the special moments in the life of our school.

With all good wishes,

Mrs L May
