I am writing to inform you about our arrangements for the Hedingham School’s Open events and visits.


We will not be running the traditional Open Evening due to safety reasons but are providing a programme which will allow you to visit the school and see us in ‘action’. This will be organised through a series of ‘Open’ mornings. In addition, we will be holding a Virtual Open Evening, which will involve student and staff presentations, followed by a live Q&A session.

  •  Student presentations
  •  Promotional Video

You may cancel your booking at any time and reschedule. Alternatively, you may telephone the School Office to book a slot or visit our website.


The school prospectus will be available on our website shortly which gives information about our school and the values we stand for. It also provides more detailed information about the school’s curriculum, extracurricular activities and school expectations.


Please note that it is the responsibility of parents and guardians to apply for a school place using the following link: You will not receive an application form from Essex County Council advising you to apply for your child’s school place.

Stour Valley Community School - Clare




As the new academic year is upon us, we thought it may be useful to share some dates on the calendar for the next phase of transition for year 6 students who may wish to join us next September 2022. There will, of course, be more detailed information in the coming months but for the time being, I hope the following is helpful.


OPEN EVENING - We won't be hosting a traditional Open Evening this year. As an alternative, we will be offering Open Day tours on Saturday 9th October and Sunday 17th October 2021 using the same format we did last year. Invitations will be sent to all year 6 parents and will include the details of how to book a tour. I hope to distribute flyers into your school very shortly.

Samuel Ward Academy, Haverhill
