Parental Feedback

Our children have different personalities, skills, interests, strengths, and weaknesses but both have been well cared for at Hall Green and have always looked forward to going to school. Opportunities are provided for all abilities and interests which helps to realise the potential of each child and so they themselves can recognise their own value. No single skill appears to be valued above all others so the pupils are able to find out what makes them shine. My children aren’t statistics, they’re individuals, and that’s why I’m glad that they’re at Hall Green.

FC, parent.

Congratulations

Year 9 PSHE Programme: Tapestry

“Tapestry” is a theatre production designed to give pupils a safe space to discuss sensitive and controversial questions about how and why young people can get drawn into extremist ideologies. The play is interactive, with the action stopping at intervals so that pupils can talk to the characters in the play and ask them questions or give them advice. This production addresses the five fundamental British Values of democracy , rule of law, tolerance of different cultures and religions, mutual respect and individual liberty and is part of the school’s response to the “Prevent” strategy.

Yr 11 Mock Exams

Yr 11 Mock Exams

The main Yr 11 Mock exams begin on Tuesday 4th December and pupils should be revising regularly at home in preparation. Our advice is that pupils aim to schedule 2 or 3 forty five minute revision sessions every evening, with 4 or 5 sessions at the weekend as well. The pupils recently had a series of revision workshops in school and know how and what to revise at home. If parents have any questions about the mock exams they should contact Mr Hosfield at school. Good luck to all those taking mock exams this December.
