Our year 7 students had a fantastic day hosted by CET where they looked at how objects portray meaning and how designers can change the meaning of objects. Students began the day looking at changing the meaning of everyday objects and were asked to draw the opposite.
They then had an exciting presentation from Mark Friend about the meaning behind the theatre sets and costumes he has designed for plays including ELF and Shakespeare.hakespeare. The students were then asked to draw famous historical people in unusual settings i.e Winston Churchill on an exotic beach. A fantastic day was had by all year 7 students and Design staff. ...

On Thursday 11th January, 25 Year 5 students from the Croft Primary School were invited to attend a karate taster session at Lower School. The session was run by Adrian Pickard (who also runs the KS3 Karate Club on a Friday at the Hart School) and his two fellow instructors. The students were engaged and disciplined throughout the session as they experienced the basics of karate. They began with a fun warm-up which was then followed by an introduction to the basic moves used in karate. They were taught the following moves:
• Jodan Age Uke – High rise block • Soto Uke – Mid range block • Gedan Barai – Low block • Choku zuki - Straight punch • Gyaku zuki - Reverse punch • Mae Geri – Front kick
The students and instructors thoroughly enjoyed themselves and staff from the Croft also commented on how stimulating the session was and how fantastic it was for the Hart School to be providing opportunities like this. Well done to everyone invoved! ... See MoreSee Less
We have been working with the ‘inspiring healthy lifestyles’ team locally and in October applied for lottery/sport England funding for £2000. This bid was to increase levels of physical activity and motivation within our sixth form. The project involves our students forming steering groups that will meet once every two weeks to plan, market, organise coaches and impleput an action plan in place for their club. Then they will measure the impact on over a 60 week period.
Well good news is, not only have we been successful in wining the £2,000 bid, they have doubled it to £4000!
We have met with the steering group on 3 occasions to listen to their thoughts on activities that they would like to implement. The first session started this week with SHBAM a form of ravorfit in the dark using Glow sticks and wrist bands. It took place at the leisure centre on Monday evening. There were over 18 sixth form females students who attended and thoroughly enjoyed it, particularly as they had planned it themselves. The next step for the students is to market this via social media, then look at future activities which the group would like to take part in to make this sustainable, and to see if we can massively boost the levels of physical activity throughout our sixth form.
The sessions start 3.30-4.30pm at the leisure centre on a Monday (Girls only) and all sixth formers welcome. See you there! ... See MoreSee Less

It's a disgrace to whoever put that on. I saw it other day and asked Georgie if it's true. She didn't know. So then asked other pupils. Our best wishes to Mr keen and all his family. I hope that post has now been amended. I was only on it to find out about the uniform for Jan as I didn't get the letter.
Clare Dutton Disgraceful 😡
It infuriates me that people are so naive that they believe that wiki is fact.
It can be altered and updated by any individual at any point.
I didn't see the page at that time myself, I take Wikipedia with a pinch of salt as it's based on opinion and heresy not fact.
Either way Merry Christmas to Mr Keen, his family and friends and all the other teachers that do a wonderful job xxx
