HOHS minibus service change

By popular demand, our friendly minibus service will be leaving school later –  at 5pm – each afternoon from September, to allow pupils to attend after school clubs before dropping them home. We currently serve families living in and around Roundhouse, Cringleford, Eaton and various parts of the city.  We are very flexible, though, so wherever you are and whether you need the service every day or could just use the occasional drop-off, do speak with Linda Jones in the main school office (01603 810390). We aim to help wherever we can!

Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly

There were plenty of hugs, tears and smiles last week as our Year 6 pupils said farewell to the Prep Department in their final class assembly – a time for memories, reflection and appreciation for each other and for their school. One highlight was a presentation of images of the group together and individually over the years, put together by Mr Peace to a soundtrack of Take That’s “Greatest Day”: there was not a dry eye in the house! We wish the girls every success in Senior School next year.

Happy holidays to all our families and friends!

Well, that’s it…the HOHS school year ended at the end of last week – and the office here is feeling very quiet today! There will be plenty of posts on the blog over the holidays, with pictures and reports of recent events, pupils’ work and more, so please have a look now and then to see. The photos below are of some of our Year 6 pupils enjoying a spot of impromptu gymnastics on their last day in the Prep Department.

May we take this opportunity to wish all of you a very happy, sunny summer.

HOHS at the Royal Norfolk Show!

Despite heavy rain causing a bit of a mishap with our marquee the day before, we had a great two days at the Royal Norfolk Show this week and it was a delight to see so many current and past pupils and some former staff members, as well as chat to families interested in our school.

We were so proud of our pupils who won art and writing prizes at the Show and would like to thank Mr Crump and some of the parents who attended the presentations for these pictures, as well as the ones of the children enjoying themselves at the Show.

  • Did YOU capture any special moments at the show? Email them to marketing@hohs.co.uk and we will post the best on the blog and Facebook.

Active Kids vouchers wanted!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys  this year.  We will be able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

The deadline is looming for the vouchers and we will be counting ours up and submitting them soon, so please bring any you still have into school by this Friday. The collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!
