Message to parents of SEND students

Written by Belinda Gosling on . Posted in Archived News, Parent News, Promoted News, School News

Here are the links to two websites you might find useful. Carol Gray has created a social story that explains the reasons behind the current lockdown and why schools are not open at this time, aimed at children with ASD. In addition to this, please find a link to the Facebook group Spectrum, which is a support network for parents and carers of children with ASD.

Message from Head of Sixth Form:

Written by Belinda Gosling on . Posted in Archived News, Parent News, Promoted News, School News

Dear future and current applicants,

We will continue to accept applicants into our college. For those of you that are yet to apply please do so using this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSckQcQ-yNeCf988fIGgEqdoBRrY6Yzj63gF5s9kk1-0eZ_iZA/viewform


I understand that many of you may be confused as to what your final grades will be. Once exam boards calculate and publish grades nationally following OFQUAL guidance, we will of course inform you of your final course offer if you have applied already and attended your interview, followed by confirmation as to when and how our enrolment process works.


Until this time, please continue to use our prospectus as a guide for entry requirements situated on the bottom of each subject profile page, this includes Sigma Sixth Courses that you will have access to. Link: https://www.hdhs.org.uk/resource-download/harwich-and-dovercourt-sixth-form-prospectus-2020-21-pdf/


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email at sarah.parker@hdhs.school. You may also request a phone consultation with myself should you wish to do so. All interviews continue over the phone and email whilst social distancing continues.

Until this time please take care and stay safe.

Mrs S J Parker
Head of Sixth Form

LITFLIX: Week 4

Written by Belinda Gosling on . Posted in Archived News, Parent News, Promoted News, School News, Student News

Every week there are films being shown across all channels that can support the study of English Literature and Language. Every week we will release HDHS LITFLIX recommendations which will consist of some details of films being shown weekly that can support the HDHS English curriculum. If it leads to reading any of the books, even better!  We would also love students to send us film reviews of any the HDHS LITFLIX films. Film reviews can be sent to Mr Gallagher at raymond.gallagher@hdhs.school
