The Results are In!

Once again, owing to our small classes and tutorial-style education, we are pleased to announce that all our Year 13 students have gained places at their first choice of university. With a pass rate of 100% and the percentage of A*-B grades rising by 8%, our girls have gained places on courses ranging from mechatronics (a combination of mechanics and electronics) to international event management.

On Speech Day, we heard from our Head Girl, Kami, about her aspiration to read pharmacy at Aston University. Pharmacy is an over-subscribed course with high grade requirements and we would like to congratulate Kami on achieving her goal.

Well done to all our Sixth Formers. We wish you every success in your future. We hope you keep in touch and let us know how you get on in your degree.

If there are any recent graduates who would like to share their results and next steps, please send a photo and a brief outline of your plans to marketing@hohs.co.uk.

Canaries adventure for Samaara!

Great to hear from Samaara (Year 1) and her family, who have been visiting Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.  As you can see, Samaara did a lot while there; seeing the volcanoes, up close with dolphins, camel ride and parasailing!
* Don’t forget to send us YOUR holiday snaps!

After-school tea invitation

cup-of-tea

We think that picking-up time at school should be a relaxing experience and a chance to chat – as plenty of our parents and staff already do, in the car park and around the school. It’s one of the advantages of being at HOHS rather than rushing into the city, after all!  The weather looks nice today for our rollover day so if you’d like to linger a little after school please join us for tea, coffee and biscuits on the lawns from 3pm.

Brilliant Hilltop trip for Years 3-6!

Our Years 3-6 pupils returned today from their fantastic residential trip away at Hilltop Outdoor Centre near Sheringham. They took part in so many exciting and challenging activities – from the vertical challenge and climbing wall to toasting marshmallows on camp fires they had made themselves.  On their last morning – today – after a big breakfast they tackled the zip wire (look at the video clip below to see why teamwork is important!) and archery.

Of course, a huge part of the fun was sleeping away from home – for some children this was the first time they had done this. The teachers report that everyone was very good and slept well, with no talking after lights out…but we expect there will be some tired children at bedtime tonight!

Look out for a gallery with more pictures on the blog next week.
