Spring is on its way at HOHS – with a chance to win a prize!

Gardener Andy Young has been hard at work in the gardens, planting new things to provide colour later in the spring and summer.  This week has seen some lovely, warm sunshine and the children can now spend more time outside at break and lunchtimes. With that in mind, here is an opportunity for observant pupils to win some prizes and perhaps learn a bit about plants!

To enter, have a good look round the gardens and see how many flowers and flowering plants you can identify (they don’t have to be in bloom yet), then write down their names and where in the grounds you saw them.  You can ask Mr Young for clues if you find him!

Please bring your list to me in the office just next to Reception  by the end of term, Friday 31st March – I have some fun prizes for top entries! Alternatively, you can email your entry to marketing@hohs.co.uk

Open Morning procedure for pupils

balloonsonlyJust 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 including hats and make sure you’re looking extra neat and tidy on the day!

Year 6 into Year 7

Entrance and scholarship exams were in full swing here today for many prospective Year 7 pupils, both from our current Year 6 and external candidates. The children had individual interviews with the Headmaster and Deputy Head, along with assessments in maths, English and their specialist subject for those applying for a scholarship in either sport, music, art or an academic subject.  We hope everyone had a good and enjoyable day; results will be sent to parents as soon as possible. Good luck to all!

If you know of anyone else who would like to join us for senior school, please encourage them to contact us as soon as possible as places in this year group for September are filling fast and are limited.Print

Active Kids is back!

Thank you so much  to everyone who has brought in Active Kids vouchers from Sainsburys in past years. We have been able to swap them for some great sports equipment for use by all age groups.

Now it’s time to start collecting again! Please bring the vouchers into school over the next few months up to the closing date at the end of June…the collection box is on the table just outside our Reception, clearly identifiable with the Active Kids branding. Thanks again!
