New School badge

Hetton School Life

We are adopting a new badge for the school.

Actually the badge is a permutation of the current crest, and closely resembles the lions that used to be on the side of the old building (see picture), so we continue the heritage of the building we inhabited for nearly 50 years.

Our lions are now proper Heraldic lions, depicted in their ‘Passant Guardant’ stance. Because the lions face the viewer it means that the school embraces its duty of being guardians of the futures of our students.

You will see the logo gradually rolled out across everything the school issues.

Fairtrade Coffee Morning

Hetton School Life

On Thursday 15th March students from Key Stage three baked Fairtrade muffins, cakes, breakfast bars and cookies to serve to staff the following day.

On Friday 16th March, members of the Interact Club served these products to staff with Fairtrade coffee from Starbucks in order to raise money for the Fairtrade charity. The Interact Club raised £79.50 for the Fairtrade charity which helped them to complete their worldwide service project and keep Hetton School’s FairAchiever award.

World Book Day 2018

Hetton School Life

Happy World Book Day 2018!

Hetton School staff celebrated some of their favourite stories once again in recognition of World Book Day. The annual celebration of authors, illustrators and reading was spearheaded by a very enthusiastic English Department who all bravely came in to school as a character from Alice in Wonderland.

This year we decided that we’d like to spend the first 10 minutes of every lesson celebrating sections from our favourite books with our students. As a result we had some really enjoyable and engaging activities with our classes ranging from drama performances to quizzes. I’d personally like to congratulate Dainey Smith and Amber Stubbs for their superb effort while completing Mrs Cooke’s quick quiz. Well done girls!

Thank you for supporting our drive to help our students realise the importance of a good book.

Awards Evening Cancelled

General Hetton School Life

Unfortunately we have to cancel our rearranged Annual Awards Evening that was scheduled for Thursday(29th Feb 2018).

Obviously it is extremely frustrating that we have had such poor weather again, preventing us for celebrating the achievements of our wonderful students, but we have to put everyone’s safety first.

We will find another way to hand our awards and give students their moment in the spotlight that they so richly deserve.

Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
