The Thomas Hardye School



We have now sent out all letters to parents of students joining us in September.

Please note that the location of the Henning 'meet the tutor' appointments will now be in the Sixth Form Centre. If you arrive via the main reception you will be directed from there. We look forward to seeing you on Friday.

Please see the 14th July update from Mr Foley, which includes much information about the start of the new term in September (click link to download).

Frequently Asked Questions

We are sure you will have other questions. Please e-mail Mrs Noble at the address below
and we will endeavour to give answers here (only the question will get posted, not your name).

Q :If my child catches a bus to school, what do I need to do?

A: If your child currently catches a bus to school, you won't need to do anything. School transport (via Dorset County Council) should update things accordingly and your child's new bus pass should arrive over the summer holiday. If you are unsure, please visit the 'school transport' section of the Dorset Council's website.
