You will be aware that at the beginning of October we were visited by a team from Ofsted for a full school inspection. We are still celebrating the publication of our fantastic report, which was sent to all parents/carers earlier this month. Ofsted judged Hazelwick to be ‘outstanding’ in all areas, which is a truly phenomenal achievement. The inspection team recognised that students ‘thrive at Hazelwick School’, that they ‘embody the school values, becoming academically, socially, morally and culturally successful’. They also emphasised that they achieve exceptionally well in national examinations because the ambitious curriculum and expert teaching inspire students to learn.
A number of students put themselves forward to be part of our Sixth Form Leadership Team and, after a rigorous selection process, I am delighted to inform you that we have selected eleven to form our team for 2023-24.
After a slight change to the proposed musical due to such a fabulous turn out from our Key Stage 3 students, the audition process for ‘Annie’ began in the last week of September. Over 70 students gathered around the piano in South Hall as Mr Bayliss and Miss Moore taught the eager students the audition song, ‘Tomorrow.’ A large group of students have also already expressed an interest in being part of the creative and technical team for the show; there is already an excited buzz around the school for this year’s show
It has been a delight to discover the reading habits of our new Year 7 students and we have been busy in the library taking their free Bookbuzz book orders. I have featured some of the titles that have proved popular with students. I have also shared information about the Hazelwick Book Group, Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteering opportunities, the library stationery price list, and the answers to the frequently asked questions about the library. I have also reviewed my favourite reads of the summer holiday.
Calling all Year 11 students and parents/carers!
