Where are they now? Felicity Watson…

We always love to welcome former pupils of HOHS to their old school, and over the Easter holidays were delighted to catch up with Felicity Watson, who came for a tour and a chat while visiting Norfolk. Felicity, now in her mid 20s and living in London, told me, “I have such happy memories of my times here. I was at HOHS for ten years and sometimes boarded as my family travelled – it is such a warm, friendly school, I loved it!”

Felicity achieved three A Levels at Grade A and currently works as an events supervisor for the National Trust, based at Eastbury Manor House near London. She is also studying for a Masters degree in Heritage.

“I honestly think I got my love of old buildings and heritage in general from HOHS”, she said. “I loved boarding in the  old attic bedrooms at Hethersett and the buildings themselves always fascinated me!”

Our new fitness suite is ready

The mezzanine floor of our sports hall has undergone a transformation over the past couple of months and is now a well-equipped fitness suite, complete with a variety of
machines – two treadmills, two bikes and a rowing machine – for great workouts!

The suite has been provided with generous support from our PA, for which we are very grateful. It will be used by our senior girls, who will be having their induction sessions with Mrs Woods or Miss Wright over the next weeks.

Welcome Back

A very warm welcome back to school to all our day pupils, boarders, parents and staff! Mr Crump led the seniors in an assembly this morning before the girls started lessons in what will be an important exam term for many. The younger pupils, meanwhile,  have had an exciting morning learning and catching up with their friends and have just enjoyed their tasty lunch before going off to play outside. There are spring flowers around the grounds and the sun seems to be trying to shine to prove the point that this is, after all, the summer term!
