Transition Programme 2021-22

Transitioning from primary to secondary school is a landmark step in a child’s journey towards maturity and independence. We understand the challenges that accompany this transition and feel at The Hart School that it is important to prepare children carefully for these changes.

Walk The World

In May The Hart School is raising awareness for Mental Health and supporting YESS. YESS, Your Emotional Support Service, is our local Mental Health and Well-being charity who provide telephone emotional wellbeing support sessions for young people and parents.

Amazing (and tiring) weekend for our Duke of Edinburgh Award students. The weekend weather was glorious which didn’t make things any easier for them.
They were all incredible and Mrs Smith, Miss Green & Mrs Knight couldn’t have been more impressed. There was even special guests for the end of the first day!

We will be welcoming lots of our Year 11 students in for their sixth form induction which starts tomorrow.

Just a reminder that students need only attend the lessons they have picked or are interested in trying out.
A timetable with rooms has been sent out via ParentMail but a timetable will also be up in the common room should students forget.

Each subject will have four lessons over the next two weeks and will be an excellent introduction to Level 3 studies and next steps.

We can’t wait to see you!

You couldn’t have hoped for better weather!

A message from the Principal:

Just last week, the landscape of Rugeley was changed forever with the demolition of the cooling towers. For teachers at this school, and for all in the community, those impressive constructions were a landmark of the town; a sign that you were approaching Rugeley. Whether by car or rail, you knew where you were whenever you noticed them on the skyline. For over half a century they have stood and watched over Rugeley.
As a long serving member of our school community, I did feel a little saddened on my journey into school last week as the event marked an end of an era for our town.

However, I also reflected on the fact that the event of the demolition, an incredible moment to witness, brought us all together as a community (even appearing on national and international news). I was incredibly touched by this and it made me realise that we, as a school, are at the centre of this community. Through our students, parents, teachers, connections to industry, our membership of an established Trust, the links with the excellent primary schools in the area, we are all connected. Though we may not stand as tall as those towers, we hope that we will continue to be something that people look to and recognise as being Rugeley

Last month we took some pictures of our students in the local area. It seems particularly poignant to share this one today

Have a great weekend.

Fourth Tower Theatre Company provided a workshop for our Year 9 students today and Year 10 students yesterday. They were looking at how to devise a piece of theatre from a stimulus. The students discussed statements, came up with their own scripts and then workshopped the scenes to develop them. We had over 50 students working with them over the last two days and it was fantastic!

Fourth Tower are currently developing their own production about Rugeley!
We think they should call it “Moulin Rugeley”

It’s the end of an era now the cooling towers have gone. A clear view from the school for nearly half a century!
Tomorrow is the start of the last half term (where has the time gone!) and we’re raring to go.

Can we remind everyone that students should complete a LFT test before they return to school.

See you all soon!!

Knowledge Connected Days

Over a thousand students in nine secondary schools completed two Knowledge Connected Days in which every Year 8 lesson was driven by the concept of either Pattern or Human Interaction.

The semantic field in a passage of prose, the periodic table of the elements, the Fibonacci series, the life events marked by different religious faiths, the stylistic features that betray the work of a famous artist – all of these are examples of how pattern infuses our knowledge. Fourteen Creative Education Trust teachers, nominated for their subject expertise and conceptual agility, wrote and collaboratively developed a suite of lessons for two hundred teachers across the Trust to deliver on the same day. Every lesson was driven by the concept of pattern – the list above, plus the patterns of movement in dance, patterns of technique in drama, patterns of language in French, German and Spanish and – of course – the patterns that make up music. The second Knowledge Connected day focused on Human Interaction, or in other words, the contingency that arises as soon as you get someone else involved in what you’re doing.

The Year 8 day of Pattern was filmed at The Hart School; Human Interaction at Thistley Hough Academy. Watch how teachers presented a range of its synonyms – from co-operation to empathy and trust, action-and-reaction and teamwork – explored by teachers in lively dialogue with students.
