  • Industrious improvement continues..

    It has been another industrious week. 

  • Choices, Charity and Consideration

    It was lovely to see so many parents at Year 8 parents’ evening last night.  We are looking forward to seeing you all again for the re-organised Pathways evening next week. (Thursday 15th March)


  • Snow, Skiing and Dancing

    Well, our first week back from half term was challenging, thanks to the “Beast from the East” and Storm Emma.  Thank you to the site team who worked tirelessly to clear the site over the weekend.   

  • Happy Half Term

    Half term is here, though the winter chill is still with us, and Christmas is just a distant memory now.   Out students have worked very hard this half term and we are very proud of them.  As quickly as the six weeks have passed in this half term, the year 11 exams will be here in the blink of an eye.

  • UK's Next Rowing Team Perhaps?

    We have had another busy, and we are pleased to say, successful week.  Firstly I would like to pass my congratulations to Emily B who came second in the Solihull Speaking competition.  Daisy, our other competitor also gave a very polished performance.  

  • Hello February!

    We are welcoming in February this week.   The nights are getting lighter, though the weather remains cold.  Spring is definitely getting closer and we are looking forward to seeing the cheery faces of the daffodils and snowdrops around our school grounds.    Despite the inclement weather our students have remained focussed on the work.
  • Goodbye January....

    Another busy week at Light Hall.  Year 11 are working hard with exams creeping ever closer now the last full week of January is done.   

  • Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you enjoyed a peaceful break.   I am pleased to report that students have come back to school with an excellent demeanour, attendance is good and uniform is looking smart.   

  • Snow is falling....

    It has been another busy week at Light Hall.  The mocks are nearly at a close and the Year 11 students have worked really hard.    

  • Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

    The mock exams have commenced and continue over next week.  All our Year 11s are working hard.  They are to be commended on their excellent conduct.
