Library Access - Every Wednesday, Pastoral 1

Year 7: 10:35am to 11am

Year 8: 11am to 11.25am

The wellbeing team are supervising Year 7 and Year 8 students to access the library. A maximum of 15 Year 7 or Year 8 students are allowed at one time in the library.


The Book Club meets once a month and operates in the same way as any book club: we choose a book; the school orders the number of copies we need; students have the month to read the book (usually a novel) and then we meet to discuss the book.

We do other things like competitions and publicity posters, and the monthly meetings are always lively, fun and book focussed. Post 16 students help and there are usually some refreshments available. All students are welcome!

At the moment, the Book Club has about 15 members. Please come along if you are interested in reading: our next meeting is on Wednesday 24 November.

On Tuesday, 19th October, Mr Conor and Mrs Patman took a group of 12 HPA students on a trip to Jesus College (an affiliation of the University of Cambridge) for the launch of the second year of the Insight Discover programme.

Throughout the day, students were given a tour of the campus and surrounding buildings so that they could gain an appreciation of day-to-day student life in higher education; partook in activities which required them to consider their future options and evaluate the routes they would have to take and the qualifications they would need to achieve their goals; and were involved in group activities which developed their teamwork and problem-solving skills which are beneficial in a variety of professions and at university.

The students will continue with the Insight Discover programme by completing projects throughout the year which are intended to inspire students and raise aspirations.
