Listen to what our students have to say

Moving to Secondary School is like nothing I had ever experienced before.  At primary school, I had one teacher and one classroom.  Now I have a timetable with different subjects taught by many teachers in a variety of classrooms.  I have to be responsible to get to the right classrooms at the right time and have the correct equipment for each lesson.  This was very daunting at first, but after a few weeks it became second nature and now I love all of the different classrooms and teachers because it is so invigorating and different. Whichever subjects interest you, I am sure you will find something at HRS to inspire you.

The school is really good – it feels big when you start but you soon get to know your way around.  HRS helps you prepare well for your future – whatever it may be.  You can see the Careers Advisor if you need help choosing your options.  My favourite subjects are Maths, ICT, Spanish and Design and Technology. There are many different extra-curricular clubs available.  I took part in the Great British Space Dinner competition.  We use the Learning Zone for homework and can take on-line quizzes on the books we have read.
