Kate Emma Haywood (born 1 April 1987 in Grimsby, England) is an English swimmer. She was the youngest swimmer to represent England in the Commonwealth Games when she qualified for the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, where she won a bronze medal in the 4×100 m medley relay. Despite missing out on qualification for the United Kingdom swim squad at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, Haywood qualified for the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia, where she won a silver medal in the 4×100 m medley relay.

She won a joint silver medal (with Sarah Katoulis of Australia) in the 50 m breaststroke at the 2008 World Short Course Championships. She competed at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, finishing in 4th place in the British 4×100 m medley relay team, and reaching the semi-finals in the 100 m breaststroke. She was forced to miss the 2009 Swimming World Championships in Rome due to a hip injury.

Haywood won the bronze medal in the 50m and 100m breaststroke at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India.

She won the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award in 2003.

Haywood currently studies at, and swims for, Loughborough University in Leicestershire.

Her great grandfather is Warneford Cresswell, former Everton and England footballer.
