Admissions update in light of Tier 3 restrictionsThursday 26 November 2020 | By Samantha Hockney
In light of this morning’s announcement around the Tees Valley being placed under Tier 3 restrictions from next week, Taster Days will continue to be postponed here at Teesside High School. We are grateful for your support as we adapt our admissions procedures to best ensure the safety of our school community.
It is safe to say we expected this announcement and have been busy planning alternative arrangements. With a high level of interest for both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years, we are pleased to share our slightly revised plans which will hopefully provide reassurance at this unusual time.
Early Years new starters: For January entry (start of term), Taster sessions will be rearranged for w/c 4 January 2021. Taster sessions for summer term entry will be organised prior to the Easter break.
Prep new starters: For January entry (start of term), Taster Days will be rearranged for w/c 4 January 2021. Taster Days for summer term entry will be organised prior to the Easter break.
Year 7 entry, September 2021: We hope to be in touch soon to confirm plans for our Year 7 Transition Day in January which will allow all Year 6 pupils and external applicants interested in joining Year 7 next September the chance to visit us for a full day of exciting lessons and co-curricular opportunities. We know how highly parents value the chance for pupils to experience a day in school before finalising plans for the next step in their education.
Sixth Form entry, September 2021: Following any announcement around relaxed Tiered restrictions, we will be in touch to arrange an opportunity for your child to sample A-level subjects at their convenience during the spring term.
Other admissions enquiries will be managed through slightly revised arrangements, but rest assured we are working hard to ensure all new pupils experience a smooth, seamless and safe start to their time at Teesside High School.
