We have, for the 3rd year in a row, been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for our continued commitment and development to Physical Education, Physical Activity, School Sport and Leadership. Next year we are going for Platinum! Thank you to everyone who has assisted in helping us achieve this, as we continue to provide excellent sporting provision and leadership opportunities for pupils across the district. Well done!
We proudly open our doors to prospective parents and pupils on Thursday 27th September. Open Evening at Hall Green School commences at 6pm, final guided tours leave at 7:30pm with the evening drawing to a close by 8pm. There are two separate opportunities (6pm and 7pm) to attend the Headteacher’s Address. You have the opportunity to talk with staff and pupils and will see many examples of lessons, pupil work and the fantastic provision for extra-curricular activities. For more information, please contact our school office or Mr Slattery.
School will finish earlier at 1:20pm on this day, so any parents should make appropriate arrangements.
Provisional results: 2017/2018
Congratulations to our outgoing Year 11, who performed superbly in the 2017/2018 GCSE exams. Provisional results show that 66% of our pupils gained a standard (9-4) pass in both English and Maths and 45% gained a strong (9-5) pass in both English and Maths. Pupil Premium performance was very strong, with 59% gaining a standard (9-4) pass in both English and Maths and 40% gaining a strong (9-5) pass in both English and Maths. Our school’s Progress 8 score is now provisionally +0.1, with a score of +0.14 for Pupil Premium pupils. Good luck to all of you in your next steps after Hall Green School!
In order to help our new Year 7 pupils become familiar with leaving the school site easily and safely, they will be leaving at 3:10pm on Thursday 6th September and Friday 7th September. From Monday 10th September onwards, they will be leaving at 3:15pm with our other pupils.
We also ask that parents refrain from driving to, or parking directly outside of the school site as this causes significant inconvenience for our local residents and creates a lot of traffic. We advise arranging an alternative meeting point beforehand.
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!
