Good luck again on Thursday The Hart School
Year 8 Spanish Trip to Murcia, Spain - 24-27 March 2018
We are delighted to announce that we have provisionally booked a residential visit to The Arbolar Centre in Murcia, on the South-East coast of Spain. This is a purpose-built residential centre, designed to combine immersive language learning with the cultural and sight-seeing opportunities available in the region.
This is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to develop their language skills whilst having fun. All activities are run by native Spanish ‘monitors’ who are specially trained and experienced in creating an environment where pupils feel comfortable speaking Spanish inside and outside of the classroom environment. Instructions for each activity will be delivered in Spanish and the pupils are encouraged to communicate in Spanish at all times. Students will also receive workbooks to provide support and reinforcement for their various activities.
The activities during our stay will include: water-sports, beach games, Spanish cookery classes and local market visits. Every activity will allow the students to experience authentic Spanish culture and language. This visit is open to current Year 7 students who are studying Spanish. There are approximately 30 places available. As places are limited, we expect demand to be high so a quick response is advised.
We will depart by coach in the early hours of 24 March 2018 and return late on 27 March. We will be travelling by plane from East Midlands airport. The provisional cost of the trip is £470. This includes transport (coach and flights), accommodation, three Spanish meals per day and all activities. Students will be required to bring their own personal spending money.
Please note that the cost may vary according to the number of students interested
Great! This will be a great experience When will we know if our child has a place on the trip
Better not put my son's name down only get another call to say he can't go!

YEAR 8 MFL CHAMPIONS DAY
On Friday 19th May, 10 year 8 Spanish students visited Wolverhampton University for a ‘Language Champions’ day. They heard a great guest speaker who talked about his many global experiences of how languages have helped him to be incredibly successful in business. The students also took part in a Japanese language session where they spoke Japanese, made origami cups and ate Japanese sweets! The students were a credit to The Hart School – well done everyone! ... See MoreSee Less
Over the past three weeks a number of students have been representing the school at the Cannock and District athletics. All athletes who have participated have shown a really positive attitude to their events and a desire to perform to the best of their abilities. They have conducted themselves in a positive manner and should be proud of their individual achievements. Here are a selection of results from the athletes who have performed particularly well.
Y8 Callum Webster – 3rd in 200m Mackenzie John – 1st in 1500m Sam Knapton – 2nd in 1500m Sandra Acheampong – 1st in 100m

Our year 13 BTEC Drama group will be creating and directing The Clash of Knights with some of our students from years 7 to 11. This event will take place on Saturday 17th June 11am and 2.30pm.
They will be performing a site specific piece based around the history of the church of St Nicholas and the gatehouse (all dating back to the 1300’s) in Mavesyn Ridware. The story is fascinating with lots murder, treason and family feuds (think a real life version of Game of Thrones.) This project is in collaboration with Lichfield Shakespeare in the Park, Ridware History Society and Sunny Eades, owner of the estate. Our school has been asked to produce and direct the production, which we have decided will be a promenade event with the audience will move around to different locations throughout the performance, both indoor and outdoor.

Yesterday we held the inaugural Hart School Doubles Tennis Championship. Once again, on a fine summer afternoon, all who played gave 100% and worked together brilliantly with their partners to try and secure The Hart School Doubles Crown. The teams emerged as follows:
Hannah Richardson+Abbie Larner Daniel Lovell+William Granger-Redfearn Lewis Durant+Ashley Bishop Nathan Mills+James Osborn
All the partnerships performed brilliantly, talking to each other, spuring each other on, it was a credit to see. From this, the partnership of Lewis Durant and Ashley Bishop took centre stage as their teamwork and sheer determination to not let any point go, earned them three wins and an automatic ticket to the final!
This meant that Hannah Richardson and Abbey Larner could join the other two pairings on one win each, if they succeeded to beat Daniel Lovell and William Granger-Redfearn. Which they emphatically did 7,3! This meant that the three other pairings all had one win each, having all won and lost against each other and it would go down to the amount of points won to see who would face the undeafeated Lewis Durant and Ashley Bishop in the final. Hannah Richardson and Abbey Larner finished on 12 points, Nathan Mills and James Osborn finished on 13 points and winning by a nose into the final with 15 points was Daniel Lovell and William Granger-Redfearn.
The final then commenced will Daniel Lovell and William Granger-Redfearn vs Lewis Durant and Ashley Bishop battling it out in a best of three tie-break set final to who would emerge as The Hart Doubles Champions. Daniel Lovell and William Granger-Redfearn certainly raised their game and the previous unbeaten pairing of Ashley Bishop and Lewis Durant were on the back foot in the first set. They brought the score back to 5-5 with a number of clinical volleys, before team Lovell/Granger-Redfern took the next two points to win the first set 7,5 and then then the deciding set 7,1 to clinch the title. ...
