Welcome to Harrytown Catholic High School
Update 20 November:
As long as we do not have another series of notifications of infection we will be able to resume face to face teaching on
Thursday 26 November apart from those who are still required to isolate.
We will, as things stand, be able to open to:
Year 7 on Thursday 26 November 2020
Year 8 on Thursday 26 November 2020
Year 9 on Thursday 26 November 2020
Year 10 on Friday 27 November 2020
Year 11 will continue to attend school as they have this week as per their schedule of exams
Full details are in the letter sent to all parents which is on the letters page here.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Please do not become COVID complacent – if we, as a nation, want to stand any chance of spending Christmas with our families or in wider social groups then we all must comply with the rules and restrictions designed in response to the information from the government to;
• keep our schools safe
• keep our pupils safe
• keep our staff safe, and
• keep our communities safe
We cannot allow pupils in school who have any symptoms of the infection and parents must ensure that they DO NOT send in pupils who have any of the symptoms listed above on the poster below. This puts everyone at risk and risks us being forced to close or partially close our school.
Remote learning scenarios are our least favoured option.
Please make sure that your child has a face mask, which they should wear when in the building at lesson changeover and during social times
It is just as important for young people to remember to socially distance - wherever and whenever possible
In order to ensure that we ventilate rooms and keep the air flowing, doors and windows will be kept open
Harrytown Catholic High School is a voluntary aided Catholic comprehensive school for children aged 11-16. It is maintained by Stockport Local Education Authority and is under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Shrewsbury.
As a Catholic school we intend to put Jesus Christ at the centre of everything we do. Therefore we will strive:
to live the gospel
to promote excellence and achievement for all
to nurture partnerships
A place for young people to grow
Harrytown is first and foremost a Catholic School, where great emphasis is placed on developing each child to his or her full potential. We celebrated our centenary in 2013 and are very proud of our long tradition of delivering a high quality Catholic education for the community whom we serve.
Living through Jesus
Harrytown offers pupils and their families a Catholic education in a caring and orderly community where we
always try to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our daily lives. We aim to know and value our pupils as individuals and to help everyone to develop their gifts and talents through a well-balanced, forward looking curriculum supported by traditional values of hard work and cooperative behaviour.
