It certainly has been an eventful Term 1!
Year 7 have settled really well, had a fantastic time at Liddington with their tutors and have made a great start to their Hardenhuish careers.
Years 8 and 9 have been embracing the challenges of Key Stage 3 and have achieved an amazing number of ACEs already.
Year 10 have demonstrated a positive and purposeful attitude to the beginning of their GCSE courses.
Year 11 have been preparing hard for their mocks after the break and I know that they have appreciated the ongoing support from their teachers.
Year 12 and 13 have been working hard in lessons and using the study area to develop their independent study skills as well as enjoying their new café facilities.
All of this complimented by amazing extra-curricular achievements and numerous trips and visits.
Thank you to Manor Catering who have treated us with a Halloween theme this week and a fantastic pumpkin carving competition
In response to pupil voice, I have asked the School Syndicate and Year Councils to consider whether shorts should be included as a permanently available alternative to a skirt or trousers during Term 2. In the meantime I have allowed the continued option to wear shorts.
A reminder that jumpers are compulsory from 5 November.
I wish you a restful break and look forward to all that we can achieve as a school in Term 2!

Year 7 Netball Reports
Hardenhuish 22-1 Abbeyfield
Most Valued Player – Emma Stables
This game really showed how hard the girls have been working in training and showed how well they have progressed since their first game. The girls all worked so hard and showed great movement and strong passing between themselves through the midcourt and allowed our shooters lots of opportunities to score which they did. It was a great game to watch and the girls really did enjoy themselves! Well done girls, see you at training after half term!
Year 12 and 13 Art and Photography Trip
On Monday 22 October Art and Photography students from Year 12 and 13 visited the Tate Modern in London. Students spent the morning appreciating art work from well-known artists like Dali, Picasso and Matisse and in the afternoon discovered some new favourites. Students took some great photographs of the turbine hall, the Thames and the Millennium Bridge as well as their own ‘art selfies’!
