Due to continuing icy conditions and extremely low temperatures forecast for overnight and tomorrow, school will be closed on Tuesday 12th December.
This is not a decision which has been made lightly, and is based upon key considerations focusing on whether students can get to and from school safely; the school site is itself safe and whether enough members of staff can get into school to supervise students.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this decision may cause, but the safety of pupils, parents and staff is paramount.
The KS3 Evening of Excellence will be re-arranged and will take place before the end of term.
The Hart School girls took to the football field last night looking to build on their first round victory in the County Cup and make it to the semi-finals for the 2nd year in a row.
We faced Madeley School, a team who’d travelled down from Crewe to face the “mighty Harts” who were more or less at full strength – Cira Conway starting in goal, the ever reliable Bethan Griffiths and Gracie “the wall” Wallace were joined in defence by Jodie Webb. The midfield quartet consisted of Holly Dyke, Millie Ellis, Ellie Jones and the leader on the pitch, team captain Leah Lewis – up front Millie Hepworth.
Madeley were a tough side to break down early on – particularly as their goalkeeper plays County football for Staffordshire and it showed as she thwarted the Hart girls on several occasions with some smart stops.
But with the Hart’s dominating possession and creating chances the breakthrough goal was surely going to come?
It did eventually as the Hart’s resorted to man-marking the Madeley goalkeeper with Ellie Jones at corners and their persistent persistence was rewarded as from a corner Ellie Jones caused havoc and bundled the ball over the line 1-0 Harts!
The second goal also came from the Hart’s disrupting the Madeley goalkeeper with Mille Hepworth knocking the loose ball that their keeper had spilt out to Leah Lewis who put the ball beyond the keeper to make it 2-0. Leah then scored a brilliant 3rd with an excellent strike which came off the inside of the post to ensure Hart’s were 3-0 up at half time.
At half-time we switched goalkeepers and Cira went up front – they played some excellent stuff in the second half but were unable to add to the scoreline.
In the event of an emergency school closure parents will be informed via a text message, social media and the school website. The website & social media will also show any relevant updates throughout the day.If the school is open but heavy snow falls during school hours, a decision may be taken to close the school early and if so, arrangements will be made with bus companies and a message posted to parents via text, the website & social media. Students who cannot get home early would be supervised in the hall by senior members of staff until they were able to do so. ... See MoreSee Less

The Y9 boys 6-a-side team took part in their annual competition at EDA tonight. Conditions were bitterly cold which made it difficult to produce any free-flowing football. The Hart School competed in league 2 along with Cardinal Griffin, The Friary, Netherstowe and SUA. Each game lasted six minutes in total which meant that chances would be at a premium and so it proved.
The boys began with a 2 – 0 defeat to a well-organised and skilful Cardinal Griffin team. In their second game they took on SUA and produced a much better performance but still lost the game 1 – 0.
Their performance continued to increase and they were unlucky not to beat The Friary in their third game, having to settle for a 0 – 0 draw.
The Hart School’s final game saw them face Netherstowe and despite another solid performance they could not manage to find the target and ended the game with another 1 – 0 defeat.
Bad luck lads!
