TASTER LESSONS

We have planned a series of taster lessons for our year 6 students for our virtual induction day (8th July). Links to Youtube will be added at 10am, 12pm and 2pm. In total there will be a series of ten taster videos added. Some of the videos have a number hidden within. Please encourage your child to try these activities / tasters.  During the students zoom meeting tomorrow night a competition will be revealed. The hidden numbers will come in very useful!  Feel free to direct your child’s year 6 teacher to our school website and, in particular, the transition section if your child is back in school. We realise some of our students have returned but many have opted to stay home or have been disappointed due to lack of provision.

Welcome to our virtual tour of the school

This picture booklet (see links below) is a virtual tour of St Hilda’s to help you get to know your new school. We also hope that you find it interesting and useful in helping you to find your way around when you arrive. It contains pictures of different parts of the school and gives you the opportunity to write on or key-in a question about each area, if you have one. Write/key-in any questions you might have about the areas shown in the pictures within the adjoining boxes and don’t forget to ask your form tutor for the answer when you start with us.

To use the key-in version of the booklet, first download it to your computer.

 

If you prefer to key-in your questions on screen, please click here.

The finishing touches – can you help?

Although St Hilda’s has a brand new school, we still have areas we need to develop and furnish!

Whilst we have got fantastic new facilities, the building budget was not enough to cover a lot of ‘finishing touches’ such as:

  • Outdoor seating in the courtyard, along the paths and near the entrance to the playground.
  • A cover outside the Library to extend our outside space and protect against the weather.
  • Equipment for the Sports Hall.

St Hilda’s needs your help because…

We have no source of income from any foundation, so the Governors rely on donations from parents to fulfil their legal obligations in maintaining a safe working environment with extra-curricular opportunities for students and to help fund new projects.
