Bad Weather Procedure

In the event of bad weather ie snow, please do not call the school. Instead we request that Parents and Carers refer to our website announcements and social media accounts for the most up-to-date information regarding school closure and school bus arrangements if we take the decision to close early. We will also notify the local radio stations should we take the decision not to open school or to close before the official hometime.  

Our Facebook is 'Congleton High School' and our Twitter account is @CongletonHS

Please note: We cannot allow students to leave early unless we have had prior permission via the link emailed to Parents/Carers. If you are unsure whether you have already given permission via the link, please do so below:


You will need to use the appropriate link for your child's year group and complete one form for each child at the school (copies of the documents referred to in the email can be found in the downloads to the right of the page.)

The links for each year are as follows (Please note, these links are for the 2019-20 year groups. New forms will be added for 2020-21):

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

Year 10

Year 11

Please be assured that we will not close unless we believe that it is unsafe to keep the school open. We do have a large number of students who travel from outside the immediate area and we aim to ensure that they are able to make the journey to and from school safely.
