Highdown School Equality Statement

Highdown School believes that all students should achieve their potential in all subject areas. We aim to close the achievement gap across all subjects and for all students. This year our particular focus is to improve the achievement of our middle ability students and to further close the gap for our students in receipt of Pupil Premium.

 

Admissions

Highdown School uses the Reading Borough Admissions Service for its admissions.  Please read the Admissions Policy below for further information.

As required by new government legislation, Reading Borough Council are required to inform parents of any school within a reasonable distance of the child’s current school which holds a routine admission round for other year groups other than year 7. UTC Reading is considered as within a reasonable distance of your child’s current school and the application process for a place in year 10 in September 2017 is underway.

More information about the school and how to apply can be found at www.reading.gov.uk/schooladmissions in the secondary schools admissions guide. This information has been sent due to a requirement to inform parents of this process and does not take into account any details about your child, such as academic performance or suitability for the school. Informing you of this admissions round does not impact on your right to remain at your current school or complete an in year transfer to another school.
