Year 9 Mosaic Project

Inspired by patterns in science and nature, our Year 9 students have spent the last few weeks taking their colour knowledge and applying it in their designs for mosaic motifs.
They took into consideration, not just the refining of their chosen design to suit the limitations of mosaic, but also what colour... combinations could show their motif to it’s best advantage. The final mosaic planters will be placed in the new garden outside our Science block.

This project was funded by our wonderful parents association, the Friends of Hampton Court House.

Activities Day – Years 3 and 4

For Activities Day, on Thursday 15th October, Years 3 and 4 went to the Chilterns Open Air Museum – the place where historical buildings come to life!
Year 3 attended a special Stone Age Day and lighting throughout the past workshop. The Stone Age workshop involved lighting fires, handling replica... Mesolithic tools and objects, creating pigments and Year 3 also had opportunities to access other essential Stone Age skills.


Year 4 had the opportunity to travel back in Victorian times. They had an old-fashioned cooking lesson where they cooked delicious scones, learnt about lighting in the past and made their own candles, and they attended a special Maths and English lesson with a very strict teacher! All of us had a great day in this fantastic place.

HCH made The Beatles4Ever Fab!

Good morrow,

Just the very briefest of notes to all those from Hampton Court House who helped Phill Marshall and the Beatles4Ever to make such a memorable evening at the Vera Fletcher Hall last Saturday. It was quite simply the toppermost of the poppermost.

The members of the band who have performed... those songs on countless occasions said that it was the best evening that they could remember other than the time that they played to 10,000 screaming Beatles’ fans in Japan in 1893.

Interesting fact:
The Beatles4Ever have been Beatles longer than the Beatles.
Everyone behaved and sang beautifully and I felt very proud of all of you who made the evening so colourful with some of the hippest hippy outfits I have seen since…well, since I tried on my starburst purple with orange Paisley crushed velvet loons last weekend. (Under the cover of darkness, naturally.)
If you missed it and stayed at home to watch the omnibus version of Z Cars, there was:
Alisa and Ava and Beth and Christabel and Coco and Eliana and Emily and Gabriel and Hayden and Kit Gullis and Sara and Stephanie.

Interesting fact number three:
The evening was not just an excuse for everyone to exercise their vocal chords and to show off their parents’ somewhat questionable wardrobe but was also to help raise some money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Phill (John Lennon) has sent a telegram from Liverpool to say that he will be taking an enormous bag of threepenny bits, half crowns and ten bob notes to the tune of £451.57p round there this very week.

A very big thank you to everyone and if they are still making thank yous in extra extra large then a special one for Beth, Coco and Hayden for their sensational solo spots.

Peace and love,
Julian :)

‘The Case’ – short film by Year 10 students

On Wednesday 21st May, Year 10 embarked on a fantastic day with an expert cinematographer tutor Miko Jaroszewicz best known for his cinematography on the Bafta-nominated and Oscar-winning animated production of ‘Peter and the Wolf‘.

The year 10’s got hands-on experience using the amazing RED SCARLET... camera which was hired in especially from Cinebug. The students learnt how to record the sound, operate the jib and set the lights. The students also put their skills into making the set, organising the wardrobe, hair, make-up and acting in the exciting Film Noir short film ‘The Case.’

‘The Case’ is a 3 minute short film set in 1920’s New York. It is a ‘Bugsy Malone’ style mystery which revolves around the central question ‘what is in the case?’

There are four scenes to the film which were all filmed in the one day.

The year 10 photography students are currently studying the cinematic and story-telling style of this post war cinema genre. They have discovered that a Film Noir usually begins with the main character being killed, that the Femme Fatale character makes immoral choices and that the films are usually set at night time in big cities like New York. The world of Film Noir is often very pessimistic and the main charter is usually isolated from their society. The plots are often based in crime and there is usually a detective connected to the main story.

We hope you enjoy our short film that is our re-enactment of the key cinematic elements that often make up the incredibly influential movement of Film Noir.

A bit thank you to all who took part in making this film.
