KS3 & 4 football matches

Well done to all of the boys who played in football fixtures against Linhope recently.  KS4 played in lashing rain. Excellent individual performances couldn’t avoid a defeat but they look forward to the rematch!  KS3 had better weather but the same luck in terms of the final score.  Mr Montague, our Sports coordinator, hopes to arrange other matches in the New...

Christmas comes to Heworth Hall!

  Christmas arrived at Heworth Hall today when our Year 11 students decorated our new Christmas tree. They worked as a team to unpack and erect the tree and made group decisions about the placement of the decorations – whilst covering themselves in glitter! We think their finished tree looks beautiful and the centre is now feeling very festive and ready for the Christmas...
