Thank you for identifying Hagley Catholic High School as your preferred choice for your child's secondary education. Our mission is for all members of our community, called as God's family, to strive to achieve their personal best, by living and learning in Christ.
We offer a comprehensive transition package to all pupils who are transitioning to us, designed to empower your child to take ownership of their move to secondary school, supported by our professional and experienced staff. The package has various elements to it, depending on the needs and location of each child.
AUTUMN TERM BEFORE TRANSITION
Our Annual Open Morning in early October provides the chance for families to visit the school to see it in action, meet students and staff and to ask any questions they may have about secondary education. Our 2023 Annual Open morning was held on Saturday 7th October 2023. A copy of the Principal's presentation can be found here.
The deadline for applying for a place at any Secondary/High School in the United Kingdom is 31st October.
For general questions about secondary admissions parents may find it helpful to read the article 'Secondary school applications deadline 2023: How and where to apply' from The Education Hub at Gov.uk The Education Hub
