Welcome back to school!

Welcome back to all our pupils, boarders, parents and staff! We hope you’ve had a lovely Easter break and are now rested and raring to go..

Let the fun, games and learning begin! This is a particularly important term for our Year 11 and Year 13 girls as they approach the GCSE and A Level exams they have been working towards, with the individual support and encouragement of their teachers.

Time for another look at our Hethersett Old Hall School video!

It’s just about a year since our HOHS promotional video was launched – and it had over 3,000 views when it appeared on our Facebook page! It still gives us that “aaaah” feeling, and reflects our happy, thriving school very well – so why not give it another look? Click here to link to  the video on youtube and let’s get the number of views there up!

The film was made by Winnie (Wing-Yee,  pictured below), a former HOHS pupil who is now a film maker.

Zai’s A Level art work

A Level art pupil Zai had just been putting up a display of her fascinating work when the roving camera stopped by in the senior art room in the last week of term.  Zai describes the first piece pictured below:

“This piece shows a pain-filled girl in a world where she is not socially accepted. I used the grindy, run-down background to give the piece an other-worldly quality as if it is crumbling. The girl’s different-coloured eyes and horns give her an alien appearance and the fading graffiti tells her story against a background reflecting her pain and abandonment.  I used sand to give the background a rough-textured layer and an urbanized effect, and watercolour for the portrait to achieve a strong contrast with the acrylic background.”

Felicity is latest Library Assistant

Congratulations to Felicity (Year 7) who recently earned her Library Assistant badge. Pictured here with school librarian Mrs Maher, Felicity undertook a variety of tasks to achieve the badge, including learning about the Dewey classification system for books. She now helps in the library when she is free at break times, mainly with issues and returns.

“I like the fiction section best,” says Felicity, “and because I love reading myself, I can sometimes make suggestions for what books other pupils might like to borrow.”
