Hinchingbrooke School

Week A Commencing 11th February 2019

Message of the Week

Welcome to week 22

It’s lovely to once again see the sun in the morning and after school as we look forward to the half term break and some warmer weather.  The school production of The Addams family looks amazing – if you can see it, it comes highly recommended.

Our theme for the week is ‘Do what the teacher asks first time.’  For the vast majority of our students, this is what they always do.  Unfortunately, not all students follow simple teacher instructions.  This can cause disruption to learning and in extreme cases, bring a lesson to a halt as the teacher tries to deal with one individual.  As part of our one school rule – Respect – this week, we’re reminding students (who may be tired and longing for a break) that it is important to follow instructions and to respect the rights of teachers to teach and students to learn.

Golden Antler Winners

Every week, the tutor groups with the highest number of 5s (for great attitudes to learning) are awarded a Golden Antler trophy.  Following the award of the trophy, the tutor arranges for a celebratory photograph to be taken.  It is then displayed around school.


Last week, the Lower School Golden Antlers winner was … 

… 7C1.  Well done again to the Cromwell students who earned the highest number of 5s last week and are now in top position above 7W1.


And winner of the Middle School Golden Antlers was …

… 9M1, chasing 9P1 for the title…

Previous winners: 7W1

Previous winners: 7C1
