Discover US – Autumn Term 2016
Students from Hasland Hall joined other Year 9 students from across North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire at the launch day of a three-year programme to help them “Discover US”, run by the University of Sheffield.
The programme is aimed at young people who have the potential to go to university but may not yet see it as a priority. A launch evening was held in November for students and their parents followed by a December “orientation” day to help students find their way around the University site and start exploring the possibilities of Higher Education.
Grouped with students from other schools, North Derbyshire’s representatives quickly made new friends. Activities included a tour and research tasks leading to giving a lecture, quizzes and prizes.
“A great start!” was the verdict of the Hasland Hall students, who will have the chance to maintain links via the cohort Facebook page and re-new friendships at future events in April and into Years 10 and 11 – including an overnight stay next year in student accommodation.

We would like to invite parents of all children currently in Year 5 and Year 6 to attend our Open Evening on Wednesday 27 September between 6pm and 8pm. Choosing a secondary school for your son/daughter is an important decision and this evening should provide the information you will need.
During the evening there will be an opportunity to look round Hasland Hall, to meet staff in the different teaching areas and to listen to a short presentation from the Headteacher.
