We would like to invite you to a Year 11 Parents' Consultation Evening on 22 October 2013.
HGS staff and PTA members would like to invite you to an informal social evening on 19 September.
The School Standards and Framework Act 1998 requires that all schools should have a Home-School Agreement, which is published and issued to parents when children first join school.
As they have done for many years, members of the Gideons will be addressing Year 7 students at an assembly on 16 October 2013.
For many years students have had the opportunity to participate in a multi-activity residential visit. In 2014 Year 8 students will be going to the Newlands Activity Centre in the Lake District.
We are writing to explain the setting arrangements for Year 7 and 8 English. All students, regardless of group will access the same curriculum and assessments.
Following a successful trip in Cologne last year, we will leave on 27 Nov and return 30 Nov 2013. Year 8 students will have two full days of exposure to German language and culture.
Then English Faculty is participating again this year. Years 7 and 8 students will be issued with sponsor forms and read an agreed number of books from 7 Dec - 15 Dec.
We would like to invite you to a Year 8 Parents' Consultation Evening on 21 January 2014.
The Newlands trip is only months away and with this in mind we would like to give you further details of which forms will be attending on which weeks.
