Survival Skills Weekend with Polaris Outdoor

In preparation for the Arctic Expedition in February, 15 HCH students went on a Survival Skills trip with Polaris Outdoor. They learned how to build shelters using only the resources they could find in the woods around them, how to light a fire, how to safely use a knife to carve tools, bake their own... bannock bread over the fire, and how to forage for resources and food. They also built resilience in the wet and cold weather and dealt with a few setbacks!

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 :)
