  • Where do the weeks go?

    Another busy week has flown by and we are rapidly approaching the end of another half term.  

  • Exams, Prefects and Uniform!

    Despite the very wintry, wet weather this week everyone at Light Hall  has remained  cheerful and focused on hard work. GCSE written examinations begin in earnest next week. 

  • Well, what a term!

    Well, what a term!   Our students have really lived up to our core values.   Their love of learning has shone through with excellent progress being made across all year groups.  

  • Despite the return of the cold.....

    Very well done to all our year groups who have coped with the horrible cold weather and are still smiling.   Year 7 made excellent progress during their PHSE day this week. 

  • PHSE, Parent App & the Police

    Another busy week in school.   The police have visited as part of our PHSE curriculum and have worked closely with Year 8 on how to keep themselves safe

  • Charity begins at Home!

    What an excellent House Charity week!  We are so proud of all our students.

  • Cupcakes for Comic Relief....

    Well, what a windy week!   Despite the blustery conditions our students have braved Storm Gareth to bring all their fantastic cakes and red nose designs into school supporting Comic Relief.  Mr McCrainor and I had an enormously difficult time choosing the winner as the standard was so high.


  • Positivety and Progress

    Welcome back after half term. 

    Students have returned with a very positive attitude.  

  • We are the Champions!

    Many congratulations to our Year 9 basketball team who won the borough final, beating Arden 44-30.  We are so proud of them all.   The shield is now residing proudly in our trophy cabinet and our boys have resolved to keep it there – we last won this in 2008.  All the boys have all been to sign the golden book for their sporting excellence.    I was delighted to shake the hand of Sam L, Hamad S, Tyler P, Charlie C, Zain M, Josh P, Ethan B, Callum B and James V.

  • Busy being industrious....

    Once again the week has flown by with all the busy activity in school.  We are now 3 weeks into the Spring term and everyone has settled down very nicely.
