Farewell to Michael Reeves

After 28 years looking after our school (and cooking for us for many of them, too!),  Michael Reeves is leaving us in June to pursue a life of leisure in his native, beloved Ireland. Many parents, past pupils and friends of the school will know Mr Reeves as a lynchpin of school life at HOHS, an extraordinarily resourceful, practical and helpful ‘Mr Fixit’. Over his tenure here he has also ably managed all of our commercial lettings, for organisations who hire our wonderful swimming pool, sports hall and other facilities when not in school use.

If you would like to show appreciation for Mr Reeves’ hard work and dedication, please send or bring donations to school Reception before 25th May (end of half term). Mr Reeves’ last day in school will be Friday 8th June.

Staff leaving at the end of term..

We have five long-serving members of staff leaving us at the end of this year – Mrs Borrer, Mrs Halford, Mrs Hall, Mrs Thorman and Mrs Young are all leaving us for pastures new. We will also be saying goodbye to some more recent arrivals; Mrs Lambourn, Mr Borrer and Mr Alecio will also be moving on.

We would like to wish them well for the future and say a big thank you for everything that they have done for the pupils, parents and school during their time with us.
