Dear Parents & Carers

We are delighted that your child has been offered a place at Patcham High School to commence Monday 6th September 2021. 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 through working closely with colleagues in 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 2nd July 2021, 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 also be in touch to invite you to an additional transition day. We will hold a New Intake Information Evening on Thursday 8th 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 around 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 arrangements, reading, reward systems and more.

Brighton & Hove City Council have sent you a Pupil Registration Form which you should have completed and returned to Mrs Kent, our Admissions Officer at Patcham High School. We also require you to complete an electronic ‘Form’ prior to us welcoming your child to the school. We will email this link to you, but it can also be found here. There is also a written biometic consent form which needs to be returned to us. All forms need to be completed by Friday 14th May 2021.

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 via email zkent@patchamhigh.org.uk to inform her of your decision . If you have any questions in relation to your child’s transition in the meantime, please feel free to contact us on transition@patchamhigh.org.uk.

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
Headteacher
