As the autumn term draws to a close, we reflect on how much our students have achieved throughout a turbulent and challenging year.

Despite the restrictions we have all continued living under since the return to school in September, we have managed to continue providing a full and varied timetable for our students with a number of additional events and activities taking place alongside our usual curriculum.

We celebrated Black History Month and European Day of Languages earlier in the term and the more recent trust-wide Codebreaking Week was a great success. There was lots of friendly rivalry between houses, staff and students as they raced to crack a series of codes and solve a number of fun maths challenges.




We’ve seen individual students taking part in impressive fundraising challenges and we welcomed children’s writer Matt Dickinson to school for a virtual visit, hearing about his stories and experiences on Mount Everest.


The creativity has certainly been flowing at Hazel Grove High School this term with the Inktober Art Challenge, fantastic performances recorded for the Great Big Dance Off and some wonderful entries for our Design a Mascot Competition.


It was so difficult to choose just one design for each house but we’re thrilled with the winning entries, which have now become the official mascots for our school houses and are displayed around the school.


We congratulate all our students on their achievements and how hard they’ve worked throughout the year. We are very proud of each and every one of them and look forward to slowly being able to return to normal in January.
