We are on Stand 5 on Third Drive (close to the Dereham gate). Do tell any of your friends who are going to the Show to drop in, too! We are also looking forward to seeing our art prizewinners receive their awards.

HOHS winners at the Royal Norfolk Show again!

We are proud to announce that, yet again, our pupils have scooped awards in the prestigious Royal Norfolk Show schools art competition, which this year received over 600 entries from across the county.

Congratulations to Matthias S (Year 1) and Isabella W (Year 6). Matthias was Runner-Up in Key Stage 1 and Izzy was Highly Commended in the Upper Key Stage Two category. The awards will be presented at 11.30 on Thursday 28th June in the Discovery Zone at the Show, where selected artwork from many Norfolk schools will be on display. Matthias won £25 for the school as runner up and the children also won two free adult tickets and a free car parking pass each, so that they and their parents can attend the awards ceremony.

Mollie’s Christmas Snowman is a winner!

Congratulations to Mollie D (Year 11), overall winner of our Christmas card design competition. Mollie’s colourful snowman-making scene will grace our printed cards, delivered later this week. With just a simple “Season’s Greetings” message inside, the cards are ideal to send to friends and family and will be on sale for £1 each or in packs of five for £4 including envelopes if you would like to buy some. Ask at Reception!

Worthy runners-up, in joint second place, were Harry T (Reception) and Izzy W (Year 6), whose designs are also shown here. Well done to them, and to all who entered – we had some excellent designs this year!
