Hereward House - Red
After Hereward the wake, an Anglo Saxon rebel who revenged the death of his father and battle against the Normans in East Anglia.
The Year 11, 12 and 13 students have been facing exams and should be very proud of their attitude towards their studies. In conversation with many they appear to be coping well. I wish good luck to those that take their actual exams in the New Year. With Christmas coming and a time of giving and sharing with those around us, remember it is not as much about opening our presents but opening our hearts. Merry Christmas to you all.
Recent Achievements: The long Autumn term is drawing to a close and I’m certain that everyone is looking forward to a well earned break. 98% of students in Hereward House continue to make us proud by completing all their work and maintaining their excellent levels of behavior around school. Their involvement in the charity events this term has been exceptional and students really rallied and helped out at the Children in Need event brilliantly. Painted moustaches and Pie Face were added to the very popular red Tombola at lunchtime in the hall. Hereward House raised £200 alone during the event. The hamper challenge is underway and there are some ingenious ideas….very much with recycling materials to help save the planet. Currently at the top of the leader board, Hereward House continues to prove that it’s the best!

In 2018, it cost around £63,000 to breed, train and support a guide dog from birth to retirement, however, the cost of a guide dog is impacted not just by the cost of breeding and training, but also the cost of all of our support functions for the partnership over an average of seven years, as well as external support such as food and vets’ bills.
