5/07/2021Unfortunately, Sports Day tomorrow (Tuesday 6th July) will have to be postponed due to the poor weather forecast. Students should therefore be in school in full uniform for their normal timetabled lessons.
We hope that Sports Day will be able to go ahead in the final week of term on a day to be confirmed.
2/07/2021Could any of our school community help a local group in need of volunteers?
Hindhead Scouts are in need of more adults to help and lead their mixed groups of Beavers (age 6-8), Cubs (age 8-10½) and Scouts (10½-14).
Being a uniformed leader is a serious responsibility but lots of parents have done it in the past, and there’s lots of friendly support from us in Hindhead and also other leaders in Haslemere district.
We’re also looking for some more members for our committee which meets once a term and is responsible for finance, fundraising, advertising, maintenance etc.
And lastly, we would love some more children to sign up and take part! Please get in touch via the Hindhead Scouts website or Facebook page if you would like more information.
2/07/2021Due to Activities Week, after school fixtures and Parents' Evenings, there will be no after school clubs taking place next week. They will resume for the final week of term.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
2/07/2021Sports Day is taking place on Tuesday 6th July and it promises to be a fantastic day for the students, full of positivity, promise and a bit of competitive spirit!
We are running a full suite of events; track, field and team, and over the last week students have signed up to the activities that they will be competing in across the day.
PLEASE CAN YOU ENSURE THAT YOUR SON/DAUGHTER ARRIVES ON TUESDAY IN THEIR FULL PE KIT. As the students will be active and exercising throughout the day please could you also ensure that they are equipped with lots of water. There will be lots of water stations provided across the school site for all the students to refill drinks throughout the day.
We can't wait! 🏆
1/07/2021We were delighted to welcome The Globe Players to Woolmer Hill this morning. The Year 9 students were given the exciting opportunity to watch their GCSE English Literature text ‘An Inspector Calls’ being performed on the stage. Despite being an abridged version, the performance managed to propel the students into the fascinating microcosm of Edwardian Britain.
The Players performed ‘in the round’ so that they could engage with every audience member. Intermittently, the Players broke the fourth wall to deliver further explanations and contextual information. They used period props and costumes as well as alternative sounds to deliver a captivating performance that the students really enjoyed.
The Players also held a Q&A session after the performance, where students posed an interesting range of questions around personal preferences to the disestablishment of the social class at the time.
We are extremely proud of how engaged the students were and their impeccable behaviour.
29/06/2021Just a reminder that we have auditions for next year’s school production of Disney’s ‘Beauty and The Beast’ taking place this week. The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday 30th June - Year 7 and Year 8
We anticipate Year 7 being finished by 4.15pm and Year 8 by around 5.30pm.
Thursday 1st July - Year 9 and Year 10
Both year groups will be finished by 5pm approximately.
It really does promise to be a fantastic show and we want lots of our students to be involved. Please do encourage your child to come along, they’ll be made to feel at ease and very welcome, no nerves needed.

Now is a great time to sign up for individual and extra curricular music lessons for next year. There are lots of opportunities on offer with many peripatetic teachers coming in to school to teach our students. Lessons can be arranged via Surrey Arts Music (see attached flyer for information) but we also have independent teachers that join us so please see Mr Nash if there is an instrument you would like to learn that isn't on the Surrey list.
If you would like to try an instrument before you sign up for lessons, pop in to the Music room one lunchtime and chat to Mr Nash. He is always keen to talk to budding musicians and you will be able to try the variety of instruments on offer.
The Music department also have instruments to hire and borrow, these are on a first come, first served basis so again please contact Mr Nash for information.
