Our School App Stay connected on the go...
This week Mr Davies takes the reins! You will know Mr Davies as our fantastic community link at SLT. Last year, Mr Davies organised the Autumn Fair amongst the many other community outreach work he does. This last term alone, Mr Davies has welcomed in a number of our primary schools to support our transition work, and supported teaching and learning across a number of primary schools to help implementation at KS1 and 2. Mr Davies is a delight to work with on SLT and I'm delighted that even with the 6 Nations on, he spared time this weekend to share his views with you!
On another note, we had a number of key events take place over the last week, including an Ofsted, the HT afternoon tea, an Open Morning for new students, hosting the Haringey Primary Gymnastics competiton, and the first of the 'Dig it' saturdays. Thank you to all for your messages of support during the Ofsted, and thanks to our staff teams for making the above possible!

Science week at Hornsey,
Science week was a wonderful opportunity for all the staff and pupils to celebrate and enjoy science challenges and activities. I especially enjoy the in-class challenges, which allow pupils to have fun while problem solving, hardly any eggs were dropped in the challenges, apologies to the cleaning staff. The Science department also designed various form activities and quizzes which allowed the science fun to spill over into every area of the school. We finished off the week in style, with a whole school event in the Restaurant. Pupils provided the kinetic energy to power a juice bike, for making a very green health food shakes. Luckily no photos were taken of me on the bike! (Ms R - 'I wouldnt be so sure sir...)
Hornsey's whole community
This week I have repeatedly seen Hornsey community come together. On Thursday night, staff and parents shared a few laughs at the charity quiz night. The closely fought quiz saw six teams of staff and parents competing against each other and the quiz master. The end of the night saw the staff teams pipped at the post by one of the parental teams. As well as a funfilled night, we also raised £290 for the school fund.
On Saturday morning it was a pleasure to see pupils, parents and staff came together to put into reality the plan to remodel the pupil garden. It was a wonderful fun filled morning, which saw Mrs Clarke in charge of a small army of spade wielding pupils. In only a single morning the pupils remodelled the garden, planting fruit trees and bushes. We laid out the borders, which will be planted in the future by the gardening club. I am looking forward to the other Dig-It Saturdays.
