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.

A farewell drinks reception for Year 13

On Thursday 22nd May we held a drinks reception for our Year 13 pupils and their parents. The Sixth Form teaching staff also came along to wish our oldest pupils all the best in their rapidly approaching A Level examinations. It was a lovely evening with lots of opportunities to capture some memories on camera.

During the evening, Mr Crump made a special presentation to three of our girls. Katie Clemitshaw, Sophie Clemitshaw and Jessica Warner have been HOHS girls for fourteen years, from Reception all the way through to Year 13.

It was an evening of memories and reminiscence. We are very proud of our Sixth Form girls and the young ladies they have become. They will be missed by staff and students alike and we wish them every success in the future.

Deputy Head

Pupils celebrate 14 years at HOHS

Our departing Year 13 girls enjoyed a drinks reception with staff and parents last night, before leaving for study leave today.

It was a particularly poignant occasion for three of our girls, Sophie and Katie Clemitshaw and Head Girl, Jessica Warner, who have been at Hethersett Old Hall School for fourteen years since joining the Reception class! During the evening, Mr Crump presented Katie, Sophie and Jessica Warner with ‘Long Service’ Certificates.

Leavingcertificate3girlsSMThe girls had this to say about their time here:

‘Looking back at our time at HOHS we have had fourteen unforgettable years. From making lifelong friendships to travelling to many countries, HOHS has played a huge part in our lives and has given us many amazing opportunities.

We would like to thank all the teachers and staff for all the support they’ve given us and making our time here so special. Some of our fondest memories include dressing up on World Book Day, taking part in the school productions and the numerous school trips we have been on.

We would like to wish all students good luck for the future and hope they have as much fun as we have had.’

Mrs Clemitshaw managed to find a photo of the three girls in their Reception class nativity play, and a photo of Katie and Sophie as they headed off to school. Last night they recreated the group shot. Haven’t they grown!
