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. For more information about Tapestry, follow the web link below:

It was a pleasure to welcome our governors, parents, colleagues and ex-colleagues and of course the class of 2018 to this year’s Certificate Evening on 22nd November.

The evening is all about celebrating the hard work and achievement of our outgoing Year 11 pupils, and awarding some individual prizes for outstanding achievement and progress and resilience in the face of difficulty. This year our prize winners were: Arusha Ahsan, Zayn Ilyas, Saleena Yasin, Aun Naeem, Amani Chavda-Wann, Ameera Gulshan and Raziq Malakhil.
