Celebrating achievements at HOHS Speech Day

There was so much to celebrate at our Speech Day today – a lovely day and with perfect weather for the traditional family picnic on the lawns afterwards, too! A truly inspirational speech from guest Jo Cruse who used examples of young women who have become leaders in their field to speak to our girls about their futures ‘bursting with virtually limitless possibility’. She also spoke with candid honesty about the challenges and opportunities that accompany times of change – as she herself faces a crossroads. “I thought it was an amazing speech”, said Amy H (Year 11) “It was as if she was talking directly to me and understood my own thoughts and feelings, I was transfixed!”

Happy holidays, everyone!

Year 6 camp out tonight!

Nursery children watched Year 6 busily putting up their tents in the secure prep playground earlier, ready for their exciting annual camp out this evening. It’s an absolutely glorious afternoon for their barbecue and games in the gardens and we are sure they will have a fabulous time before getting under canvas for a good night’s sleep!
