Hi will this be open to other years or is it just the year 7?
Was going to ask the same question.
The year 9’s season continued tonight as they faced John Taylor for the 2nd time in 2 seasons in the County Cup – this time at home – after being beaten last season the team were certainly optimistic that they could reverse last year’s 3-1 Quarter-Final defeat but alas it wasn’t to be – the game was a good solid game with few chances for either side as the match was largely played in the middle of the park.
Highlights from the game of few chances were a great surging run from Mackenzie John, a brilliant cross from Ryan Maclean-Stewart that couldn’t be turned in.
Hart played well in fairness but were unable to create many clear cut chances in front of goal and limited John Taylor to almost nothing – Sam Wollaston in goal had very little to do in truth and only had one save of note to make.
In a new addition to the Y9 Football Mr Mcknight has kindly donated some Man of the Match awards for the students and today both myself and Mr Smith agreed that Andrejz Jerome was rightfully the Man of the Match (he played in a three in centre midfield and literally was everywhere across the pitch…) and can be seen in the attached picture receiving his award alongside Captain Jake Cartwright.
Could all students who are planning to go on expedition please attend the Fundraising meeting on Friday 29th September at 3:30pm in the Upper School Hall. Parents do not need to attend but are welcome to join us if they wish to. ... See MoreSee Less
The new Year 7 football team had a baptism of fire this afternoon losing against a very strong Lichfield Friary team in their very first fixture. The Friary team, which contained a number of football academy players, started very strongly, pushing the Hart School back from the outset. The team held up well before conceding the first goal, which unluckily got past Archie Jellis.
Although the Hart School threatened through a few counter attacks, Friary were ruthless up front and scored another five in the next 15 minutes, mostly through long range efforts which Archie had no chance of defending.
However he did save the next attempt, but injured his hand in the process, which meant Aiden Stubbs came on early for his stint as keeper on the 25 minute mark, and did a fantastic job to keep it at 6-0 until half time.
With the team talk focused on the midfield dropping back to help the defence, pressing the opposition, and exploiting Hart’s pacey wingers to hit Friary on the counter, the Hart school made a much improved performance in the second half, hitting the bar and threatening the Friary on a number of occasions! The Friary did add another three to the tally over the rest of the match but these were very worked goals and the match looked completely different to the first half, with the Hart school playing much more solidly as a team. Final Score, Hart 0-9 Friary, with lots to work on, well done boys!

Hi - yes it's 6pm start but we'll be there to greet you a little earlier.
An Open Letter from Camps International Group.
If you are considering signing up for the Ecuador and Galapagos Expedition, this letter may inspire you!
Dear Head Teacher
Cambodia Summer 2017!
After the safe return of Emma, Claire and your students, we would like to take this opportunity to give you a very brief overview of some of the highlights of their summer.
What a blast! Through the sheer sweat (and sometimes) tears, your students have made a huge and lasting positive impact on the lives of many rural Cambodians.
Your teachers and students have been involved in shovelling, mixing, moulding and turning out concrete ring after concrete ring, by hand. They have dug and squelched their way down into the Cambodian soil to provide impoverished local families with clean wells and drinking water, toilets and cess pits, which will massively impact on the health and hygiene for the local communities.
Not only have they worked hard at improving the lives of villagers, they have been digging and planting Mahogany and Teak saplings, in order to redress the huge illegal logging and deforestation issues that are rampant in Cambodia. One team alone, planted over 250 trees and we had 14 teams in Cambodia this year. That’s potentially 3500 trees planted by our teams, just this year.
Interacting with the local children is always a highlight of all our expeditions, whether it be playing volleyball or football or sitting quietly, platting hair, singing songs and holding very animated ‘hand’ conversations with young Cambodians who are desperate to learn our language in order to improve their lives and future employment opportunities.
They have visited the awe-inspiring Angkor Wat Temple, Bayon Temple and Angkor Ta Prohm and ticked them off their bucket list. They’ve learnt about the proud Angkor history of a once truly great nation and then witnessed the cruelty and despair that was inflicted on these gentle people by the Khmer Rouge at the S21 Prison and the Killing Fields. An experience that few of them will ever forget.
Being pushed to your limits and forced out of your comfort zone is not something we usually enjoy, but your students did both of these! They slept on mattresses on bare boards, washed in cold water, shared their living spaces with mosquito’s, bugs, spiders and survived. They have eaten enough rice and chicken to last them a lifetime and still came back for more. They then participated in the trek over the Kulen Mountains, which saw them being pushed even further to their limits, but once again, they faced each day with determination and good spirits and took on every challenge given to them. We are so proud of them.
Living in or close to the local communities has enabled your students to really appreciate how tough daily life can be, but at the same time, how resilient and strong the human spirit is in order to overcome the adversities that life throws at us. We hope they have learnt many lessons from this and will carry them in their hearts, to pull out, dust down and use whenever they may need them in the future.
From the deepest core of everything Camps International stand for, we would sincerely like to thank you, The Hart School, Emma, Claire and your students for their incredible hard work, dedication, joyous spirits and a whole bunch of great laughs and mind-blowing memories.
