IELTS Success

Last week Kelly in Year 13 received her IELTS result (the International English Language Testing System). This qualification is a university entrance requirement for students with English as an additional language. Kelly achieved a grade of 6.5 which is higher than the 6.0 required by most universities. Kelly aims to study business and marketing at either the University of Leeds or the University of Surrey. We would like to congratulate Kelly on her excellent IELTS result.

More Netball News!

On Friday 8th February, our U11 netball team played their second match of the season versus Norwich High School for Girls. Sadly the girls did not win, however they clearly improved upon their defensive skills as the game progressed with lots of dodging and interceptions later in the match. Great effort girls and a special well done to Cameron as it was her first ever netball match!

Christingle Service

This afternoon our Upper Prep and Lower Prep pupils took part in one of our favourite festivities, our Christingle Service at St Remigius Church. The Reverend Derek McClean led the service, with the children singing songs, making musical contributions and leading the prayers. Once the Christingles were lit and the lights were turned off, everyone circled the church and sang Away in a Manger. It was a wonderful start to the Christmas celebrations. Thank you to all the parents and families who came to share the service, and for your generous contributions for The Children’s Society. If you have any lovely pictures from the Christingle, please send them to marketing@hohs.co.uk.
