Y13 pre-uni cooking course with HCH chef

As part of their preparations for going to university in September, Year 13 students spent an afternoon in a cookery session with HCH chef, Junior. They learnt how to debone a chicken, make an omelette (for some it was their first ever omelette) and for dessert they made vegan blueberry muffins.
Junior... took the students through creating a weekly shopping list and how to prepare and store food that will last them a week. The group discussed maximising your money at the supermarket and freezing foods safely. What a useful and engaging session for year 13 which will stand them in excellent stead for their university life in the autumn.

Former HCH student delivers Cold War politics lesson to Year 12

On the last Monday of term we were delighted to welcome former HCH student, Ayman Triki, back to the school to deliver a fascinating lesson on Cold War politics to our Year 12 historians. Ayman has recently completed a degree in international relations at Royal Holloway and was keen to demonstrate how... his own A level studies helped to prepare him for university. The students, some of which were joining the lesson via Zoom, greatly appreciated the opportunity to hear from a recent graduate. Ayman’s depth of knowledge and understanding clearly impressed the class and has no doubt served to inspire them in their own academic pursuits. A huge thank you to Ayman for dropping by and giving us his time.

End of term team building activities for HCH sixth form

After a busy period of A level and AS internal assessments, the Sixth Form ended the term by enjoying a variety of bonding activities. This included a fun-filled outing to Thorpe Park, where the students took delight in being hurled around in every direction at terrifying speeds. Determined not to be... outdone, the accompanying form tutors braved each of the major attractions, although later admitted that their favourite ride was the bus back to HCH!

During the following week our Sixth Formers spent an afternoon working together to complete a series of team building exercises. These included a challenge whereby teammates must guide a blindfolded individual along a pathway littered with obstacles that must be avoided. It was wonderful to see the students co-operating with such determination and good humour.
