The weekly blog - keeping you up-to-date with school life; Stars of the Week; Housepoint winners and much more..

Welcome to this week's blog.  After the successful launch of the HB/HG podcast and my podcast on Reading, I thought I would record the blog.  This way you have the option of reading this on your phone, or listening to it whilst getting on with your busy life.  Listen to the blog via podcast, click here for the direct link.


I wanted to take a moment to update you on some exciting events that have been happening at school this week.


Firstly, I would like to congratulate the pupils of St Patrick and St George for earning enough housepoints to enjoy a dress-down day. It was wonderful to see so many bright and colourful outfits during the assembly today.


We also celebrated Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, which are important dates in the Christian calendar. Father Roger came and spoke to the children about Lent and the importance of reflection and sacrifice during this time.


Additionally, we held our Maths Whiz competition, and I am pleased to announce that we have some incredibly talented mathematicians amongst us. Congratulations to all the winners!


We always strive to provide a well-rounded education for our pupils, and we are grateful for the opportunities to celebrate our diverse community and religious traditions. I hope that your children are enjoying their time at school and continue to grow in their knowledge and skills.


Thank you for your ongoing support, and I look forward to updating you on more exciting events in the future.
