Book your HOHS King’s Camps Weeks – and take a friend for free at Easter!

Parents – exciting news! You can now book your child/children in for the Easter and/or summer Kings Camps activity weeks at HOHS. We are especially pleased to tell you that, for the Easter week only (April 9th-13th), we have a ‘Bring a Friend for Free’ offer. So if you have two children, the second will be able to attend at no cost – and if you are bringing a friend rather than a sibling, you can share the cost between you. Please note that although there is a booking form online at the Kings Camps website, to take advantage of this special offer you will need to book by phone. Here’s how:

For siblings: Call 0114 263 2160 and you can make one booking over the phone.
To bring a friend: Call 0114 263 2160 and book your own child in. Tell the Kings Camps staff member the name of the additional child you will be bringing. Then ask their parent to call the same number to confirm the free booking, and arrange the cost share between yourselves!

After Easter, we will give you a discount code – for our HOHS parents only – for 10% off your summer and subsequent bookings.

On the blog tomorrow: news of our summer camps’ Grand Opening – with special guest appearance from Norwich City legend Wesley Hoolahan!

Rambling for Pudsey at HOHS

We promised some more pictures of last Friday’s sponsored ramble through our Autumnal woods and gardens. All the Prep children took part and enjoyed being together outside…we love that our school nurtures co-operatoin between different year groups, the older children always keen to encourage the younger ones.

Fundraising for Pudsey at HOHS

We had a great time today with our Children in Need activities including collecting pennies for Pudsey, taking a leisurely ramble through our beautiful grounds in the bright Autumn sunshine, a “Runsie” (fun run wearing a onesie) and scavenger hunts! Looks like we have raised over £300 in total: we’ll be able to confirm this on Monday, and let you know which house won the donations competition, too.  More pictures of today’s ramble will be on the blog next week… WELL DONE, everyone!

Mia and Maisy (Year 12) have been running scavenger hunts since yesterday, with pupils encouraged to find the 15 spotty images they have placed around the grounds and gardens. Here are some of the Prep children having fun locating them all!
