Sports Results: U14 netball v Langley School

Netball-HOHSThe U14 netball team played valiantly against a strong and very tall Langley team this afternoon, but unfortunately it resulted in a defeat for us.

Player of the match was Isabel who, playing as Centre, maintained great fitness and teamwork throughout. It must also be noted the final goal of the match came from a fantastic long-range shot by Mia.

Well done ladies!

A chance to see your child’s work

We’d be delighted to welcome current parents to our Whole School Open Morning being held on Saturday (7th March) from 10am to 12 noon.

It’s a chance for you to see your child in ‘action’ and to take a look at some of their recent work.

If your child is currently in the Pre-Prep or Prep School, it’s also the perfect opportunity to have a look around and see all the fantastic facilities that will be available to your child as they progress up through the school.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Open Morning procedure for pupils

Just a reminder to all our pupils (from Reception –  Year 13) who are coming into school this Saturday for our Open Morning.

Please arrive at school between 9.30 – 9.45 am and enter via the side gates, not the front door. You will need to go directly to your form room for registration at 10am before heading off to join the teacher you are assisting. At the end of Open Morning pupils should leave school via side gates not via reception.

Those pupils acting as guides should come to the Entrance Hall at 9.45 and register with Mrs Jones.

Please remember to wear your full uniform and make sure you’re looking extra neat and tidy on the day!Open-day-tour-group
