Congratulations to everyone who picked up their GCSE results today, in another record-breaking year for HHS! Enjoy the rest of the summer; we look forward to seeing many of you again soon in the Sixth Form.
Thursday 18 August 2011
It was a really great morning. Students collected the results of all the hard work they had put in over the previous year. There were mainly smiles (and a few tears… of joy!). In several cases, students exceeded their targets by some distance, with one gaining three A*s and one A grade! Congratulations to everyone on your results!
This year saw the Sixth Form achieve its best results ever, a considerable increase on last year’s already good results. This is down to the hard work of our students, and the staff and Sixth Form team who have supported them throughout the year.
We look forward to another successful year with the present Y12 as they move into Y13.
Director, Hellesdon-Taverham Sixth Form
HHS students at King's College
It was an early start on 19 July as a group of Gifted and Talented Year 12 students set off on a visit to King’s College, Cambridge. On arrival, we were met by Kristy Guneratne, the Schools Liaison Officer at King’s.
Following a guided tour of King’s College and its world-famous Chapel, students were given a talk on ‘how Cambridge works’, including information on the Oxbridge application and interview process. We were shown impressive facilities such as student accommodation and the Library before lunch in the main dining hall at King’s, a fine building in its own right.
We spent the afternoon with Kristy, who provided information on UCAS and tips on how to make a Personal Statement stand out. The new student fees that all universities will be setting from 2012 were also discussed.
The aim of the visit was to raise aspirations of students in the Sixth Form, to ensure that our top students are applying not just to Oxbridge but to all the best universities in the country. The day proved very enjoyable as well as extremely informative for all the students concerned.
Mr Taylor, Director of Sixth Form
