We have been advised by Tameside Local Authority that your child has been offered a place at Hyde High School to start in September 2021.
You can accept/refuse your child’s place by telephoning school reception on 0161 366 7533 or emailing [email protected] no later than 12th March 2021.
If you choose to refuse the place offered to your child you will be required to put this in writing. Please include in your letter/email your child’s name, date of birth and the school your child will be attending in September. If you choose to refuse the place offered at Hyde, you will continue to receive information until school admissions have confirmed with us that your child has been offered a place at another school.
If your child has not been offered their chosen school, you can appeal to Democratic Services via Tameside’s website www.tameside.gov.uk . The closing date for appeals is March 26th. Your child’s name will also be added to your chosen school’s waiting list. You will be able to check your child’s position on the waiting list online from the middle of April.
All year 6 students are expected to attend two New Intake Days at their new high school prior to joining in September.
Our New Intake Days take place on Thursday 1st July and Friday 2nd July 2021 when your child will attend Hyde instead of their usual primary school.
They will experience taster lessons with year 6 pupils from other schools and begin to make friends. We hope this will make your child feel more confident about starting high school in September.
An additional day is offered to selected students where there is an identified special educational need or they are considered particularly vulnerable at transition. Those students are carefully selected by the SENDCO and Head of Year in collaboration with the primary school.
