The Hythe School is filled with fantastic, happy children who achieve amazing things both in and out of school and we want to celebrate their hard work, success and achievements here.
If your child has received a certificate, medal or trophy, shown courage or kindness or would like to share something special they have achieved, please let us know and we will be proud to share this here and in school.
We also want to share with you here the lovely feedback we have had from families, volunteers visitors and Ofsted about our school.

7 March 2019 World Book Day Celebrations
It was wonderful to welcome Hannah and Megan from Carers UK to talk to Year 6 Owls about their charity on 26 February. The children presented them with a cheque for £540.87 to help the charity with its vital work supporting carers. The money was raised by their Young Enterprise project last December in conjunction with British Gas supported by Sinead Hudson. We are very proud of all their hard work and it was fascinating for them to learn more about how their donation would help.
These photos are of Lily in Year 5 & Harry in Year 3. Lily has worked hard to apply for 7 Blue Peter Badges and has inspired her brother Harry to get his first one too! That's amazing!
This picture is of Maddie and Layla who, after spending one of their days over half term making cakes with their Nanny, decided to have a cake sale outside the house. After learning about Marie Curie in a recent assembly, Maddie wanted to raise money so that she could help people who are sick, like Marie Curie did. They raised a total of £28.55! What a fantastic thing to do - well done girls!
Daisy in Year 3 Dragonflies achieved first prizes and best junior exhibit awards for her beautiful drawing and creative craft entries at Egham Show and Chertsey Show this summer. Lovely work Daisy!
Mia in Year 1 Rabbits was awarded an orange belt for KUGB Karate. Well done Mia!
Although they didnt win, they thoroughly enjoyed the day. Their performance in the friendly games was excellent, winning 3, drew 1, lost 1. Well done Niamh and all the girls in the team!
Anna Christodoulou, Royal Holloway University's Science Outreach Officer, ran a particle physics workshop for Year 6 on 21 February. The children loved it and we thought we would share Anna's response to our thank you email with you all : 'They were all so well behaved and so willing to participate that they made it truly enjoyable for me as well.'
Some of our children visited Butser Farm in February - here's what the Schools Coordinator had to say about them : 'It was lovely to welcome you again at Butser yesterday. Phelim and Helen have asked me to email you to say how much they enjoyed the day. Everyone was so engaged and the children asked very intelligent questions.'
We are very proud of our Year 6 children. They were fantastic hosts at our Harvest Festival Tea Party for local senior citizens. We would also like to celebrate the generosity of our families; your donations filled half a dozen tables! Thank you.

Teagan in Year 4 spent a day at Sir William Perkins School and had to speak in French as much as possible during that time. Teagan named flags of European countries, labelled pictures of animals and sang Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes; all in French! And she made mayonnaise from scratch. We think she thoroughly deserves the Certificat de Merité.
