Pyjama Party for Year 13!

On their last day before study leave, as tradition dictates, Year 13 flouted the usual dress code, this year opting to turn up in their pyjamas. We know they will all be wide awake for their exams, though! Good luck, girls.

HOHS Golden Girls at the Palace

Last year’s HOHS Deputy Head Girl Emily Matthews writes:

On May 24th 2017 five of us (last year’s Upper Sixth) got the opportunity to receive our Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s award at Buckingham Palace. Most of us arrived early, which allowed us to explore the beautiful gardens, take photos and listen to the Royal Band in the glorious sunshine. Groups from all around the country were assigned a different area and we were part of a group of fifty people from Norfolk and Suffolk.

Presenting us with our award was celebrity soprano Laura Wright who performed at the opening ceremony of HRH Prince Harry’s inaugural Invictus Games debuting a piece she wrote called “ Invicible”. Laura also completed her Gold award and was therefore able to share some of her own experiences with us before we were visited by The Earl of Wessex. The Earl spoke to us about our achievements and asked us about our own unique Gold DofE experiences. Overall it was a great experience and it was lovely to see everyone, including former pupils, Megan and Libby.

Year 13 drinks reception

On Wednesday 24th May we held a drinks reception for our Year 13 pupils and their parents. It was a beautiful, sunny evening which allowed us to hold the reception outside for the first time in a few years. Pupils, parents and staff enjoyed drinks, canapes and cakes out on the lawn in the evening sunshine.

We are proud of our girls here at HOHS and we would like to wish them all the best in their rapidly approaching A Level examinations.
