New Uniform Information 1/9/14
Thank you to the large number of parents who have spent time and money purchasing the new uniform over the summer break. I am eager to see how incredibly smart the students look on their return to school. I am aware that there has been some problems obtaining trousers due to low stock at Tesco, I am sorry to those parents who it has affected.
Sainsbury produce very smart mid grey trousers for girls and boys in a full range of sizes. I have liaised with the management at the Sainsbury store in Huntingdon in order to secure a large supply of these trousers. The first part of this stock was due to be delivered to the store at the end of last week. A pack of two pairs of trousers cost £10-£12 depending on size. For reference the style numbers are:
Girls – 124352340 (smaller sizes) or 126354550 (larger sizes)
Boys – 122793678 (smaller sizes) or 126331892 (larger sizes).
The Sainsbury staff in the clothing area have been advised about this arrangement with the school and should be able to direct you to the correct items.
Thank you for your ongoing support in implementing this change to the Hinchingbrooke uniform.

Hinchingbrooke School -GCSE Results Press Release August 2014
Hinchingbrooke Year 11 students are celebrating a bumper year of GCSE grades at A* or A. 29 of our students achieved 8 or more A* or A grades, including Emelia Brown and Esme Walters who both achieved A* passes in each of their 11 subjects. Rebecca Heath and Robert Fielding also performed extremely well, securing 10 A* grades and an A each. Each of these also achieved a top grade in the Free Standing Mathematics qualification, an advanced level course which they have taken in addition to Maths GCSE. Other notable performances came from Greg Goodwin, Sharon George and Hannah Talbot (9 A* and 2 As), Natasha Bond (8A*s and 3As), and Jake Peacock, Katie Smith, Grace Sice and William Taylor who each achieved 7 A* or equivalent grades.
In all, 21 students achieved either 10 or 11 A*/A grades, and almost a quarter of all entries this year were graded A* or A. In a year which has seen the complete removal of modular exams, and the ‘toughening’ of certain subjects, it is particularly pleasing to note that so many students at Hinchingbrooke continue to achieve the highest grades.
61% of the cohort achieved 5 or more A*-C passes, with the figure standing at 56% including English and Maths. 98% of our 292 students achieved 5 or more A*-G grades.
We congratulate all of our students and staff on their hard work which has led to these outcomes, and wish our Year 11 cohort all the very best for the next stage of their education.
