Grace to perform at London College of Music Prize Giving

Thank you to Grace’s mother for sending us this lovely picture, with news that Grace has achieved a Distinction in her Grade One Musical Theatre exam.

Grace, who has just finished Year 4 at HOHS, achieved such a high mark (95%) that she has been asked to perform at the London College of Music prize giving ceremony.  For the exam, she sang and performed Do Re Mi from The Sound of Music and a song from The Little Mermaid.

Well done, Grace!

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.

Speech Day picnic just beats the rain!

Today we celebrated arguably the biggest day of the school year  – Speech Day! A full report will be posted soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to share some photos of families enjoying their picnic lunches after the formal part of the day was completed.  Anyone who had hoped for a leisurely lunch in the sunshine over a couple of hours was disappointed though –  barely had the last sandwich been consumed than the skies opened, the thunder roared…and the marquee came into its own again!

We hope all the families who came to share this landmark event enjoyed the day.

Years 3 and 4 visit Kentwell Hall

Last Friday, Years 3 and 4 travelled back in time to 1593 when they visited Kentwell Hall in Suffolk to experience life in Tudor Times first hand. They discovered such things as Tudor pottery, basket making, cooking, sword school and dyeing.  They even visited the alchemist and made an explosion with gunpowder! The children explored the grand house and saw what life was like for Tudor gentry. After a long and enjoyable day, we all went through the time tunnel back to 2017…

Boarders go Full Steam Ahead

This weekend the boarders took a step back from the hustle and bustle that comes near the end of term to travel through the Norfolk countryside by steam train. The lovely Bure Valley Railway people gave us our own carriage to and from Wroxham. The girls were enchanted by the steam, the whistle and the amount of dirt on the driver! With time between trips to shop in Wroxham, the girls have declared it to be “the best trip ever”!
