If any girls aged 13 or over are interested in giving rugby a try (pun intended!) please see the poster below for information. Mrs Mann is the ladies’ team coach and Olivia, one of our Gap Year Assistants, is a regular team member so, if you’re not sure if rugby is for you, you can always ask one of them about it first.

Last term, when he was in Year 1, Matthais came second in the Royal Norfolk Show Art competition and this week his prize arrived. Along with a cheque which will be spent on art materials for our Phase 2 pupils, he received this beautiful wooden plaque. Well done, Matthias!
The biennial whole school photo will be taken next Wednesday (19th September).
We would like everybody to be looking smart and tidy so please make sure you come to school in winter uniform on that day. Blazers should be worn, please, but not pullovers or cardigans. Could girls please ensure they have blue or brown hair accessories only; Sixth Form should be in a suit or smart skirt/trousers and jacket with blouse.
Happy 16th Birthday, Rosamaria! We wish you many happy returns on this special day and hope you enjoyed yourself this weekend.
A recent study has indicated that a green environment could enhance academic achievement. The research showed that children who lived and learned in natural wooded and grassed areas had better spatial working memory, which is linked to higher academic attainment.
Almost 5,000 English young people were involved in the study, which was published in the British Journal of Educational Psychology. The authors wanted to see how important shared green spaces were to a trait strongly linked to academic performance, among other things.
We have always thought our beautiful surroundings here at HOHS must be good for learning, but now it’s official; when our pupils are playing in the woods and running around on the lawns, they are not only developing their muscle power – they are building brainpower too!
