The Hart School has been fortunate to acquire the services of an RFU Rugby Coach who has been working with the KS3 boys during their PE lessons.
He has been sharing his expertise on the game of rugby and allowing them to experience the key skills needed to succeed.
He has been very impressed with a number of our students who have shown real enthusiasm and commitment during the lessons. He has also helped to create links with Rugeley RUFC and some of the students have started to train down at the club on a Sunday morning.
Rugby is a fantastic sport for children, bringing many physical and social benefits, including increased confidence, self-esteem and self-discipline, and enjoyable physical exercise as part of a team. Teachers constantly comment on off-pitch behaviour improvements when rugby is introduced in school. Scrum down boys! ... See MoreSee Less
Monday 12th Year eleven and twelve drama students went on a trip to MAC Birmingham to see Splendid Production’s Metamorphosis, a fantastic adaptation of Kafka’s novel. It had us all in stitches, and was a great way for students to see Brechtian theatre techniques being used in the flesh. The students who attended were even called on to participate, and were fantastic ambassadors for our school.
Tuesday 13th Year seven drama classes each performed their page of Claire Dowie’s Adult Child / Dead Child, a play based on mental health themes. It came together really well, and the mature students did a really good job of using an ensemble style to explore such a pertinent theme. Well done, year seven! You’ve done yourselves proud.
Thursday 15th Year eight dance classes each performed their piece of professional repertoire in front of an audience. The choreography, though in a plethora of styles, was all very challenging, and the students did a fantastic job of making it exciting for the audience’s viewing. They proved that they can all perform to a very high standard! Well done, year eight! u ... See MoreSee Less

To tie in with discussions about volunteering and charity work, we spent 2 hours at The House of Bread – a charity for homeless and struggling people in Stafford which provides hot food and drinks and also offer a food bank and place to come and talk. Four students helped to sort out donations and label and organise and the other four helped in the kitchen prepaing food and serving those in need. The students got such a lot out of their experience. We were all quite moved after spending 2 hours helping others.
In the afternoon, the students had to go and find information out from various charity shops (and report back in class the following day) and then in the afternoon they were treated to a very English (royal) afternoon tea at Cup a Cha in Stafford. ... See MoreSee Less
The inaugural Hart School Y8 Inter-form Netball Competition took place yesterday afternoon on the Netball Courts at Lower School. Over 40 students competed for their respective tutor groups and all performed admirably in the chilly and breezy weather conditions.
The competition was divided into two leagues (A and B with both leagues containing 4 teams). Each team played each other in their respective league and points were awarded in relation to their results. After the leagues had been completed, the team finishing first in each league played the team finishing second in the other league in the semi-finals. The winners of these two matches then faced each other in the final.
The semi-finals were both very close with 8-ISM beating 8-RPA and 8-GBR beating 8-GPO. The final also proved to be a nail-biting affair as 8-GBR and 8-ISM both had good chances to win the match. However, the match went to penalty shots and it was 8-ISM who were victorious.
A massive congratulations to all those students who participated and were proud to represent their tutor group.
However, 8-ISM are crowned the Y8 Inter-form Football champions. Well done! ... See MoreSee Less
