  • Headteacher Re-Opening letter 28.08.20

    Published 31/07/20

    Dear Parents/Carers

    We are writing to explain to you the procedures that we are putting in place as part of our reopening for all learners in September. We know this is still a very uncertain time and we also understand the importance of having young people back in full time education. This will bring benefits for their physical and mental health as well as ensuring that they are continuing their learning journey. We ask parents to be fully supportive of the school in these measures and to talk them through with their son/daughter. There is some school specific information here that new learners and Year 7s will not yet have full knowledge of but we will go through it with them in more detail on their first day at school.

    Whilst we can never guarantee a risk free environment, we do take the health and safety of our community very seriously. In order to mitigate risk and ensure the safety of all we have followed government guidelines and set out the process for re-opening school next week in the attached document. You are advised to read the guidance very carefully and if you have any questions, please do contact the school to discuss by emailing Please put COVID measures in the title of the email.

    We look forward to seeing everyone back in school.

    Yours sincerely
    Paul Gamble

  • GCSE Results Statement 2020

    Published 13/07/20

    This has been a very challenging year for all involved in education but for learners who were due to sit exams this year it has been really hard. They have missed out on so many of the experiences that learners have previously taken for granted and they have faced uncertainty and anxiety of an unpresented level around their results.

    That is why we are especially delighted to see so many of our Year 11 learners in school once again today celebrating their deserved success. We are delighted with their outcomes and they fully reflect their hard work and dedication throughout their years at HHS. At the same time, it is sad to say goodbye today but we are pleased that so many of them will be back in a few weeks as they enrol into our sixth form.

    There are so many GCSE stories which could be shared but a special mention to the Year 11 Head boy and girls of 2020. Ilanthiraiyan Sivagnananamoorthy, Head Boy, celebrates with a well-deserved clean sweep of 11 grade 9’s across all subjects. Head Girls Pranvera Merkaj and Anne-Rosa Bilal also secure the clean sweep of 11 grade 9s.

    At A-Level and Level 3 BTEC, we have had many successes, with nearly all of our students off to study at their first choice universities. Special mentions to Aleksa Kirilova who achieved A*A*A and will be studying Politics and Economics at LSE, and Suela Merkaj who also achieved A*A*A and will be studying Medicine at Plymouth. Asma Laiche achieved a clean sweep of Triple Distinction* in her BTEC Science course, and will now train to be a Physiotherapist
