Dear Parents & Carers

We are delighted that your child has been offered a place at Patcham High School to commence Monday 5th September 2022. We hope they are excited about the transition to Secondary school.

During the Summer Term, we will aim to ensure a smooth transition both for you and your child by working closely with our feeder Primary schools and providing you with as much guidance as we can.

We are looking forward to hosting a transition day on Friday 1st July 2022, where your child will have the opportunity to spend some time here at Patcham getting to know the school and staff. If your child is coming to Patcham as the only one from their Primary school, we will be in touch to invite you to an additional transition day. We will also hold a New Intake Information Evening on Thursday 7th July 2021 6:30-7:30pm when you will have the opportunity to meet with your child’s tutor and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

The Head of Year 7 will be in touch with you after May half term, and again before the end of the academic year with further information about these events, together with our welcome booklet including information on uniform, equipment, lockers, food, reading, reward systems and more.

You will have been sent a link to our online Pupil Registration form which you should have completed. If you are having any problems with the form please contact Mrs Kent, our Admissions Officer at Patcham High School. It is necessary for you to complete an electronic form prior to us welcoming your child to the school. This can be found here. In addition, please complete the enclosed biometric consent form and return this to the school. Both the electronic registration and the biometric consent form need to be completed by Friday 13th May 2022.

Please note: If you no longer require the place for your child at Patcham High School, could you please contact Mrs Kent at the above address or email to inform her of your decision  If you have any other questions in relation to your child’s transition please feel free to contact us on

We are looking forward to welcoming you and your child to Patcham High School and to our partnership over the next 5 years.


Yours sincerely
John McKee
