Christingle Service

This afternoon our Upper Prep and Lower Prep pupils took part in one of our favourite festivities, our Christingle Service at St Remigius Church. The Reverend Derek McClean led the service, with the children singing songs, making musical contributions and leading the prayers. Once the Christingles were lit and the lights were turned off, everyone circled the church and sang Away in a Manger. It was a wonderful start to the Christmas celebrations. Thank you to all the parents and families who came to share the service, and for your generous contributions for The Children’s Society. If you have any lovely pictures from the Christingle, please send them to marketing@hohs.co.uk.

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!
