Cambridge University Visit – Spring Term 2016
A minibus full of KS4 students from Hasland Hall spent an enjoyable and informative day in Cambridge during the Easter break. An introduction to, and tour of, Murray-Edwards College by School Liaison Officer Catherine Rowley started the day. Having taken part in research and received useful advice on reading around subjects to impress Admissions Officers, students were particularly interested in the college art collection (the biggest of works by women artists in the UK) and the library, as well as the dining arrangements.
The afternoon was spent on a walking tour of Cambridge, with a stroll along “The Backs”, time in the Market area and visits to either the Fitzwilliam Museum or the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
Part of the school’s programme to encourage students to think diversely about their destinations post-16, the trip followed a morning in Hasland Hall school last term led by Catherine and her counterpart from Corpus Christi College, Oxford, Brendan Shepherd.

Year 11 Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
We would like to invite parents of all Year 9 students to come into school on Wednesday 23 January at 7pm to attend the GCSE Guided Choices Evening. The evening provides an opportunity for you to find out more about the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the subjects that are part of it. Subject teachers and the Careers Advisers will be attending to answer your questions and offer advice. We look forward to seeing you.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Bev Kershaw on 01246 273985 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
