Wrapping Up 2021

Blog Header Image

We are wrapping up 2021 with much to be grateful for as staff, students and families have supported each other during another challenging and rewarding year. Looking back, it’s tricky to remember everything, so we’ve captured some events for posterity. Key moments have included:

  • GCSE and A-Level results days, with our congratulations going out once again to these students who worked so incredibly hard during a difficult period.

  • The completion of our one-to-one Chromebook rollout, allowing all students to have access to modern devices at all times, both in-school and out.

  • Our Open Evening, where we were excited to be able to open our doors once again to prospective parents, albeit in a limited fashion.

  • Inspiring visits from alumni Sophie Pender, now a corporate lawyer, and Rosie Walsh, now in her final year at Oxford University.

  • Catching up on the lives of our talented 2013 Sixth Form Leadership Team, who have gone on to fantastic things since finishing their studies at Hertswood.

  • Giving out subject awards to recognise the students in each subject area who have put in the most effort this term.

Just recently we have also celebrated our monthly Photography Challenge winners for the year so far and launched our new Careers Newsletter, with a December career spotlight on Pharmacy. We hope you also enjoy our 2021 Winter Arts Showcase which rounds the year off in style and includes this festive dance video from our new Dance Club!

Looking forward, the New Year is set before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. As always, what the New Year brings to us, will depend very much on what we bring to the New Year. We look forward to working with you in a brighter 2022 and wish you an enjoyable and restful holiday.
