Beautiful Snow Ball!

Yesterday evening the Barn was transformed by hardworking members of our PA into a beautiful winter wonderland for our annual Snow Ball. The senior girls dressed to impress and once again the Mocktail Bar proved a big hit on the night! Many photos were taken and girls are welcome to bring a USB to the marketing office to have them uploaded: here is just a small selection. There will be some more printed out to look through in the Black Hole at school tomorrow – and a gallery on the blog soon.

A huge thank you to our Parents’ Association for helping to fund the evening as well as transforming the barn into such a beautiful wintry venue…

A snow storm, Santa and a selfie or two!

Last night the Barn was once again transformed into a winter wonderland for our annual Snow Ball. Snow-Ball2All dressed to impress and looking beautiful, our senior girls filled the dance floor, made good use of the Mocktail Bar and spent plenty of time both posing in the photo area and perfecting the perfect ‘selfie’! Santa also proved a big hit on the night!

A huge thank you to the ‘decorating crew’ (Mr Armes, Mrs Barrow & Mr Kassulke) who helped me to transform the Barn in just a few short hours. Thanks also to everyone who helped make the snow flakes, Mr Reeves for the lovely food (and the Ho Ho Ho!) and the HOHS staff who helped out on the night.

All the photos from the evening will be appearing on the blog soon…

HOHS goes ‘Glitz and Glamour’

On Tuesday 8th July, around 130 pupils, teachers, parents and friends celebrated the end of term in true HOHS style at the ‘Glitz & Glamour’ Leavers’ Ball.

Following many months of careful planning, the evening, organised by our two departing head girls, Jessica Warner and Charlotte Clarke, along with plenty of help from the Upper 6th, parents, staff and PA, proved a resounding success.

The marquee was transformed with its beautiful table decorations and a ‘cupcakes and confectionery’ table to help keep the energy levels up. The guests, all of whom were dressed to impress, enjoyed a delicious sit-down meal and dancing through to the end of the night.

Having a (midsummer) ball!

On Thursday 4th July, 150 pupils, teachers, parents and friends celebrated the end of term in true HOHS style at the Midsummer Leavers’ Ball.

Following many months of careful planning, budgeting, decorating and deliberating over table plans, the evening, organised by our three departing head girls, Hannah Gaskin, Kelsey Borrer and Hannah Brighton, along with plenty of help from the Upper 6th, parents, staff and PA, proved a resounding success. In fact, according to many who attended, it was by far the most well-organised and enjoyable ball to date!

All their hard work certainly paid off. Both the grounds and marquee were totally transformed, with a candlelit walkway, cosy outdoor seating areas, atmospheric lighting and beautiful table decorations to set the scene. The menu was delicious, the drinks flowed and Scratch the Cat filled the dance floor to capacity right through to the end of the night. And let’s not forget the guests, all of whom made that extra effort to dress to impress and inject some glitz, glamour and style into the event.

All in all it was a fantastic night and the undisputed highlight of the school year. Well done to those who worked so tirelessly to make the evening such a success and good luck to next year’s Upper 6th who have to follow in their footsteps!
