In year 8 geography lessons earlier this year, we learnt about globalisation (increasing links between different countries). We learnt about how our clothes, toys, gadgets etc. are made all over the world. After this, we started to learn about where Nike designs and manufactures their products. We watched videos about what they did and we found out that the materials get shipped from one country to another. They then use the materials to manufacture the clothes and then export them all over the world.
Battle of the Brains: 2017/2018
July 10th saw the inaugural “Battle of the Brains” competition, where four local Primary schools competed for the title and trophy. Hall Green Junior, Yorkmead School, Lakey Lane Primary and Billesley Primary faced off in a nail-biting encounter which saw HALL GREEN JUNIOR crowned Champions! Well done to Musa, Sara, Louisa and Haaris. Thank you to parents, siblings and staff for attending and supporting, and we look forward to meeting again in July 2019!
GCSE Results Day, 2018
Reminder to all Year 11’s that GCSE results will be available to collect from school on Thursday 23rd August between 9.30am and 1.00pm. If you not are able to come into school that day, please provide a stamped addressed envelope before next Friday so results can be posted home.
Hall Green School is a member of the NewStart Programme. NewStart is a prevention and early-intervention programme to promote mental health and emotional well-being in our school communities.
Led by Birmingham Education Partnership and funded by the NHS, the NewStart programme aims to build resilience and well-being for young people through a school-based community development model.
NewStart is working with schools to help staff know earlier when young people may be experiencing poor emotional health and to put support in place for them sooner. Understanding how the whole school can support such students enables all pupils to achieve better outcomes.
Police and schools in the city are committed to working together to protect our young people from becoming victims of knife and weapons crime. Click here for more information.
There is a fund provided by the Yardley Education Foundation which provides a grant of £80 towards school uniform. Pupils currently qualifying for Free School Meals (FSM) or pupils who have qualified within the past six years are eligible. Each parent/carer has to apply using the new online system, which takes roughly two minutes. If successful, the grant will be awarded and our school will also receive extra funding to purchase literature for specific subjects or the school library. The attached map shows the geographical area for which the pupil’s postcode would be eligible.
