Head’s Message

Welcome to our school…head_pic_smaller

I am very proud to welcome you to our school.  Our website can give you a flavour of what makes Hyde Community College a successful school and a special place for learning, but its true warmth and harmonious ethos can only be fully appreciated by a personal visit.

This is a good school where students show positive attitudes to learning, respect and tolerance for others and where they achieve well.  We have high expectations of all members of our school community and, alongside a strong work ethic, we want to instil in all our students a sense of belonging and pride in their school.

From the moment a student joins us we want to get to know them well and to support them in realising their full potential in an environment where they feel safe, valued and happy.  Good schools are not only measured by academic results but also by the nurturing and development of each learner as an individual; each has their own needs and their own talents and the hugely positive relationships throughout Hyde Community College enable our students to thrive and to achieve.

I feel privileged to lead a very talented team of staff in offering our amazing students a wealth of opportunities.  I look forward to working closely with families to ensure that every child leaves Hyde having enjoyed their time here, having made the best possible academic progress, having felt looked after and cared for and having grown as a responsible, capable and confident young person.
