This week has been a really busy and exciting week at Handsworth as it was Children in Need week. The week consisted of many events to raise money for Children in Need and there was a lovely atmosphere throughout the week. Monday was a great start to the week as many Year 13 students started […]

The first week back started with an INSET day (smiles all round from Year 13) which gave everyone the perfect opportunity to catch up on all of the work and revision that should have been done over half term! Tuesday was mainly spent readjusting back to school life: juggling class work, homework, extra curricular stuff and last […]

This week has proven to be more eventful than any of us had anticipated. Every time I entered any computer room every screen had at least one UCAS tab open and with hopeful eyes glued to the screen, desperately waiting to hear something, anything. The endless surfing through Student Room threads proved to be useless […]

Although UCAS seemed like a scary concept at the start of the year, it has been a lovely experience to celebrate with my friends as they have started to get offers this week! It really is so heart-warming to see everybody supporting each other and being proud of everyone’s achievements. After working on my own […]

This opportunity presented itself primarily on […]

After beginning this week wandering (somewhat aimlessly) across the Longmynd hills in Shropshire, I feel refreshed and ready to enter my second month as a Year 13 student. Our Biology field trip provided an excellent opportunity to put into practice the methods and techniques of ecology we have been learning about since the start of […]

I think after seven years at Handsworth, it’s safe to say that I’m a true Handsworth girl and this week was as busy as any other in the school year. After celebrating my 18th birthday at the beginning of the week it gave me a chance to reflect on how much KEHS has been such […]

The first week of Year 13.  I think everyone felt a mixture of excitement, nervous anticipation of the work load and a comforting sense that we had already survived one year of what Sixth Form can throw at us. Upon arrival, those applying to university on the early deadline were asked to brandish their personal statements […]

Last week proved to be a mixture of hectic organisation and excitement for my last ever sports day at KEVIHS. My role involves me working with the House Captains and therefore I was, alongside my captains, involved heavily in the organisational aspect of Sports Day 2015 and helped to orchestrate the general running of it […]

This week has been one of the most enjoyable albeit hectic weeks of Year 12 for me but it is definitely the most memorable. We are often informed about opportunities which may be of interest to us and a few weeks ago we learnt about the UNIQ Summer School at the University of Oxford. The […]
