A Factor

Our Fundraising Week continues with some A-Mazing performances from our talented students.  Results announced in our final assembly!

Staff Panto

Well done to all those brave members of staff who kicked off our fundraising week with their very entertaining panto.  And thank you to our Year 12 team for their very creative writing and directing!

Christmas Concerts

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the fantastic Christmas Concert, from the wonderful Harding House and Chamber choirs to the whole host of groups – orchestra, percussion, rock and jazz as well as the stunning soloists.  We were then treated to a beautiful carol concert in St Mary’s Church – thank you – you really got us in the Christmassy mood!

AHS Election

Thank you to our Year 13 and 12 Politics students, who have worked very hard running the AHS in-school election and analysing the results.

Sporting Success!

Congratulations to everyone involved in Team AHS PE for being ranked at number 5 in the Top 100 Schools (and the number one all girls’ school!)

ReLove Our Stuff!

Thank you to our Eco  Group who ran this brilliant event today and to everyone who donated clothes and who came to browse.  What a great way to clear out your wardrobe and get some ‘new’ clothes for free – and it’s environmentally friendly too!

It’s estimated that more than two tonnes of clothing are bought each minute in the UK, more than any other country in Europe.  That amount produces nearly 50 tonnes of carbon emissions – the same as driving 162,000 miles in a car.

From growing the cotton to the dyeing process, it can take an estimated 20,000 litres of water to make just one pair of jeans and one t-shirt. To put this into perspective, it would take more than 13 years to drink this amount.

So it was great to see clothes being recyled and reloved today and as it was so popular, we will definitely run this again next term – why shop when you can swap?!

Joint Production

Well done to everyone involved in the AGS / AHS joint performance last week.  We were entertained with well known show tunes in the first half and then an entertaining adaptation of Guys and Dolls after the interval.

Year 7 Teambuilding

All 6 Year 7 forms spent a fun-packed day at Green Park last week, doing various team building activities and a high ropes challenge.  As well as challenging themselves, they learnt a lot about working together and making friends.

International Finalists!

Good luck to our F1 in Schools team for their international final at Silverstone this week!  And thank you to Mr Cook for all his support with this.
