Pupils at Hardenhuish School experienced an exciting array of trips, workshops and presentations last week during the school’s second Science Week.
The event, organised by the school’s Science department to coincide with National Science Week, involved all year groups. All Year 9 pupils participated in Zoolab workshops during which they met a range of creatures such as stick insects, a royal python, hissing cockroaches and a rat and learnt about the complex adaptations of the animal world. Later in the week, the Year 10 pupils attended a Chemistry presentation hosted by Professor Averil MacDonald OBE to support the GCSE Science curriculum.
It has been Science Week this week and most of our pupils will have had the opportunity to engage with a Science based activity outside of their lessons – thank you to the Science Team for making this happen.
Welcome back to Term 4! I can’t quite believe that we are half way through the year.
I hope that you had a restful February break.
We have returned with a renewed focus on our high standards of uniform and hope that we can count on your support in ensuring that pupils conform with our expectations.
What a busy term!
Heads are down focusing for the summer exams, for which all the entries have now been made, but it hasn’t stopped our amazing staff and young people keeping themselves busy with so many
extra-curricular events and opportunities.
The Hardenhuish site certainly looks a little different than it did at this time last week, as you can see from the photos below !
Thank you for your understanding with our snow closure and the rearrangement of our Key Stage 4 Options evening. Those decisions are not taken lightly and are always made in the best interests of the safety of our pupils and staff.
As you will see there are no items in the Headlines this week (but please read through to the end as there is some good news!) – the result of us all having our heads down and working hard (especially the pupils!).
