September 25th, 2015 Comments off

IMG_1360Year 11 Geography students enjoyed a day at the beach last week – completing their GCSE controlled assessment data collection at Lulworth Cove. Students firstly visited Durdle Door, to study the magnificent arch formation. They then walked along a part of the South West Coastal Path (recently awarded the award for the most beautiful walk in the UK) to Lulworth Cove.

In West Lulworth Village pupils investigated the environmental impacts of tourism – mapping the land use, asking other visitors and tourists a questionnaire and visiting the Heritage Centre to collect secondary data. Pupils behaved exemplary on both days and we are very proud that they have collected some excellent data for their controlled assessment.

Welcome back – New Beginnings

In this weeks assembly I discussed the values we want all our students to develop and impeccable behaviour at HWCS

The assembly slides can be viewed here.

​We have very high expectations of our students and a belief that every student is capable of meeting them. The rules are only there because we need them to help us make sure learning can happen in the best possible conditions. Everyone has to follow the rules so that the systems work and everyone benefits.

The Behaviour for Learning system is one that has been tried and tested in numerous schools. It is based on the principle that, once students know the rules and the consequences, they can make the right choices for themselves and for others. When children thrive at school and at home, it is usually because the boundaries are very clear and there are clear consequences if they stray beyond them. Clear boundaries and discipline are completely compatible with a caring and happy atmosphere. Read more…
