From Tuesday 2nd March Patcham High School will start to offer lateral Flow testing to all pupils, before they return to school on the 8th March.

Keeping Our School COVID secure

The safety of our school community at Patcham High is paramount. A thorough risk assessment is in place. The risk assessment  details the  control measures we are taking to mitigate risk from hazards associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have established a clear set of  COVID Secure Protocols for staff, students and parents. These protocols follow DfE guidance and are framed around proportionate protective measures for children and staff. It is essential that we all adhere to these protocols.

COVID Secure Protocols

Patcham Risk Assessment


At Patcham High School we are committed to being a school for all and consider ourselves a proactive community who promote inclusivity and celebrate diversity. We are an Anti-Racist School who endeavour to create an environment which allows all our pupils and staff to thrive and learn from each other’s differences; experiences, cultures, backgrounds, identities and abilities. It is our intention to ensure that all students are supported to be proud of themselves, respect each other and ultimately succeed as young adults. We are particularly conscious of the need to ensure the identities of those from minority groups are acknowledged and celebrated – in every field, at all times, every day – whether students of colour or LGBTQ+ we have an overall aim of providing equal opportunities for all by having One Team and One Dream.

Headteacher's Welcome

Creative, supportive and hugely aspirational; on behalf of the students, staff and governors welcome to Patcham High.

Located at the heart of our community, we are an energetic, proud and successful school. We have an unshakeable faith in the power of high quality teaching and want the very best for each and every student. We are passionate about education and relentless in our pursuit of improved standards and outcomes. We believe that all children can achieve.

Our aim is to develop well-balanced 16 year olds, ready to go out into the wider world, to lead happy and fulfilling lives and to contribute, positively and generously. We place great importance on high quality relationships, teamwork and a ‘can do attitude’. Our students display:

Pride and respect
Grit and resilience
Confidence and creativity

… they have hope for the future and they are qualified to make choices.
