    Congratulations to the winners of the House Visual Arts Competition. There were so many excellent entries, the judges had a very difficult choice. In first place, Grace M (Challenger), in second place, Imaan R and in joint third place, Sam H and Aiden B. Sareena M, Trinity K, Charlotte S, Carah M and Priya C are all highly commended for their outstanding entries. 

  • Cycle safety, sports & special students

    Personal Safety has been a key theme this week. Mr McCrainor and our neighbourhood police team have led a series of assemblies on the theme of keeping ourselves safe, not only online with very careful use of social media, smart phones and websites, but also when we are out and about on our pedal cycles, by ensuring that we always wear a helmet.

  • C is for Careers, and Cake.....

    This week, year 11 spent Wednesday looking at their possible career paths and their options after their GCSE exams this year. Careers advisers took them through key dates and deadlines and provided them with vital information about local options and useful websites. 

  • Cake, cake and more cake...

    Cake, cake and more cake is the theme of today. Our MacMillan Bake sale has been very successful, with so many students and staff contributing, supporting and buying cake. 

  • A Credit to our School

    Light Hall was buzzing last night. We again welcomed crowds of people to our annual Open evening. The choir sang beautifully, our guides were frequently complimented on their excellent conduct and manners. 

  • Extra Curricular, The Environment and More ..

    It has been another busy and successful week at Light Hall. Students are very focused in their lessons and the hard work has begun in earnest. Extra-curricular activities are beginning. It has been good to see large numbers of students staying behind after lessons to participate in different events.

  • Welcome Back

    Welcome back! Congratulations to everyone on such a positive start to the new academic year. Students have returned looking very smart and have quickly settled down to some hard work.

  • Sports Day, Maths & the Yellow Brick Road

    What an amazing week at Light Hall, we have so much to be proud of this week. Sports Day was a huge success, so many students took part in the events. There were some outstanding performances from individuals, teams and houses. Particular congratulations to Josh L and Jilani for records in the 100m sprint and Joe H for an outstanding javelin throw.

  • Shakespeare Day

    It has been a very busy and productive week at Light Hall. Year 7s have been learning about Shakespeare.  Their mini productions at the end of each day were impressive, revealing a very good understanding of the key themes in several plays and much dramatic talent!

  • Goodbye Year 11

    Examinations and assessments have been the main focus this week. The GCSEs have finally finished. We look forward to our year 11 Leavers’ assembly next week. Year 10 have experienced taking exams in the large Sports Hall, in preparation for next year. Their behaviour has been impeccable.
