This website aims to give you a taster of the school, and provide information about ongoing developments and initiatives. It is designed to give all stakeholders, prospective parents and children up-to-date information about what has been and what is currently happening at Pearl Hyde.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

We know just how important it is that children feel safe, happy and secure to be able to work to the best of their ability and make good progress. With this in mind we encourage the children to set realistic but challenging goals.

In 2015 our school community celebrated its 40th birthday and we were joined by many past pupils and staff to share good memories from times gone by.

Why Pearl Hyde?

Our school was built in 1974 and has served the surrounding community ever since.

Pearl Hyde MBE became a Labour Councillor in 1939 and stood in the Walsgrave Ward of Coventry for 18 years. She became a senior member of the City Council and was Chairman of several of important committees. In 1957 she became the first Lady Lord Mayor of Coventry and requested that her daughter-in-law, Betty Hyde, was her Lady Mayoress.



During the Second World War she was the organiser of the Coventry WRVS, arranging food and shelter for people who had lost their homes during the Blitz.

Sadly Pearl Hyde was killed in a motoring accident in Scotland in 1963. In her memory our school, and a canal boat, are named after her.

Our school has 315 children on roll which we organise into 10 classes. We work hard to provide a stimulating environment which invites enquiry to make sure every child is able to access the fabulous learning opportunities available to them.

We are immensely proud of the environment and opportunities we provide for the children in our school. We hope you support our passion for fostering our young people’s desire to aim high and to achieve the very best they can in all they do.
