In October, a group of students studying Art visited Paris to support their work. The students had an amazing experience and visited some of the most famous landmarks the city has to offer:
The Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, Napoleon's tomb, the space museum, Les Invalides, The Louvre, Les Orangerie, the World Qar 1 battlefield at Vimy Ridge, Sacré Coeur, Place Du Tertre, Montparnasse tower and Rodins art gallery were all on their sightseeing list.
An incroyable time and learning experience was had by all.
The pictures show some of the amazing photography skills the group possesses. ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday Miss Hackett & Miss Dix took a group of Y10 students to an NHS careers event at Staffordshire County Showground. The students discussed career pathways available within the NHS and learned of the different skills required for each role. Career information was available for: paramedics, podiatry, midwifery, theatre nursing, dental practitioners, the army, financial roles , community nurses and optometry. They now understand the different ways in which to apply for these posts. The students benefited from this event and are now aware of whatthey need to achieve in their lessons to reach their goal. ... See MoreSee Less
The Hart School had the great honour of attending Remembrance Sunday at Rugeley’s cenotaph yesterday, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War. The pupils who volunteered to represent our school made us all extremely proud. Not only through their impeccable behaviour and professionalism, but the way in which they read out the names of those who had fallen during the laying of the wreaths. It was done with great sincerity and was truly a humbling tribute. Members of the public and the Royal British Legion complimented our pupils for their very important part in marking this event and the exemplary way in which they conducted themselves. ...

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY: The Hart School had the great honour of attending Remembrance Sunday at Rugeley’s cenotaph yesterday, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War. These pupils who volunteered to represent our school have made us all extremely proud. Not only through their impeccable behaviour and professionalism, but the way in which they read out the names of those who had fallen during the laying of the wreaths. It was done with great sincerity and was truly a humbling tribute. Members of the public and the Royal British Legion complimented our pupils for their very important part they played in marking this event and the exemplary way in which they conducted themselves.
Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the year award winners and former pupils of The Hart School Ellie and Abbie Holloway, completed their 50 mile bike ride raising over 1,640.00 so far for BBC Children in Need, bringing their fundraising total in 11 years to over £20,000.00.
We were thrilled to welcome MP Amanda Milling to The Hart School on Friday and showcase some of the amazing things that our students were doing as well as give her a tour of the renovations since moving to a single site. We were especially proud to let her see our revolutionary Wellbeing Ambassador Programme. This involves twelve of our Sixth Form Psychology students participating in Positive Psychology Training that qualifies them to coach younger students and their peers. It’s a wonderful way of getting students to use their theory in the subject in a practical way, in the hope to one day work in the ever-demanding mental health sector. ... See MoreSee Less
The Hart School Sixth Form’s Design students had an amazing day last week at Staffordshire University taking part in an event run by Higher Horizons. The day was based around introducing students to problem solving workshops that involved collaboration between team members to come up with a variety of original and innovative solutions.
Students said: “I enjoyed the day because of looking at new skills and knowledge based around engineering I haven’t used before”
“Working in teams on the given briefs was fun and engaging”
“It was amzing working with the programming kits as I haven’t experienced anything this before. It has really made me think about my ambitions in this subject”
We look forward to giving our students more opportunities like this. ... See MoreSee Less
Last night we became aware of an issue with some students unable to access the internet whilst at home.
We are looking to resolve this issue ASAP. Some gremlins left over from Halloween must be up to no good.
In the meantime here is a simple workaround:
1) Open Google Chrome browser 2) Click on “Hart School Bookmarks” in the top left corner 3) Click on “Access From Home” 4) In the webpage that opens, towards the bottom click on “ADVANCED” 5) Then click on “Proceed to ra-sw01.ceat.ceatcloud.org.uk…”

Here are the answers for October's Monthly Maths and the new set of sums for November's challenge.
For those that are new to Monthly Maths:
The maths calendar asks students one question a day. Each month we will email out the new calendar and the answers to the previous months questions. It would be brilliant for the students if they could use this at home as extra daily practise. At home, you can support by encouraging your child to print off the calendar and remind them to have a go at the question each day, then mark the questions with them at the end of the month. ...

On Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th October, we took nearly 200 Year 7 students for a day of outdoor and adventurous activity. They took part in sessions such as: BMX biking, orienteering, archery, team challenges, rock climbing and caving. Some overcame massive fears of heights, going down into caves which were small and claustrophobic but everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time. They learned to work as part of a team, some found they were natural leaders and started to develop this throughout the day. The staff at the centre were extremely complimentary about the students, especially the girls on the second day. They were impressed with the way they just got stuck into activities and ‘had a go’. they were a credit to the school. Well done Year 7’s!! Thank you also to the staff who went on the trip and supported the students! ... See MoreSee Less
