A reminder that all pupils should wear their summer uniform, including boater hats for the Prep Department girls, on their return to school after the Easter holidays, please.  If you are missing any summer uniform items, the uniform shop will be open from 8.30am until 12 noon this Thursday 30th March for your last minute purchases. Please note that it won’t be open all day the first week back after the holidays, as Mrs Clemitshaw will be away.  You can email uniform@hohs.co.uk with any queries about uniform.

Year 13 gearing up for university

Our Year 13 students now all have university offers under their belts – and will have to decide which are their top choices for next year! From animation to psychology, and from London to USA and Canada, their chosen paths are exciting and diverse. Alongside their subject studies the girls are working with Mrs Grove on ways to prepare for university life. Covering such issues as budgeting and finance, accommodation options and more, these sessions aim to help make the transition from school to independent living as smooth as possible.
