This weekend HPS sent a team to take part in the First Lego League Regional competition. It involved schools from all over the region designing, building and programming lego robots to complete challenges, and undertaking a STEM project in our local environment.

And we won! Well done to the children who took part, we’re very proud! HPS is now through to the national finals, competing against Primary and Secondary schools from across the UK.

Helping The Gambia

Helping The Gambia

Late last year we donated some of our unused furniture to the Lisa Kent Trust charity which works to educate children in The Gambia.
This week we received an update that our tables and chairs had arrived! Great to see them being put to good use!

Census Day!

Census Day!

Census day is approaching, and you know what that means – It’s time to secure some extra funding for our children!
Given that our school budget is once again being cut it would help greatly if on Thursday 16th Jan you sent your child for a school meal.
It’s build a burger day!
