  • Non-Uniform Day - 25th October 2019

    Published 11/10/19

    Non-Uniform Day – 25 October 2019

    On Friday 25th October 2019 we are holding a non-uniform day to raise money for Children in Need by donating £1. Please note additional donations are most welcome. All donations should be given to your child’s tutor in morning registration on the day. You may opt out of this if you wish by wearing normal school uniform for which no donation is expected but always welcome.

     

    Children in Need appeal week is 11th – 15th  November 2019, however this falls within our Year 11 Mock period so we have chosen to hold our non-uniform event at this time instead. As a school we have pledged to raise £1000 and all donations on the day will be given to this cause. Further details on the cause can be found here https://www.bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/.

     

    Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the school day. We politely remind parents and students that this is an opportunity to wear something different. It is not a fashion show and we expect the usual standards of dress by covering the body appropriately for the school environment. On this occasion fancy dress is not appropriate. Please consider this to avoid us sending students home to change or be placed into isolation.

     

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support with this charity.

     

    Yours sincerely

    Mrs Scott

    Senior Deputy Headteacher

We will have a variety of exciting new books on offer for students to browse and purchase starting from just £2.99. There will also be competitions in school over the next week giving students the chance to win vouchers to spend at the Book Fair. 

    Not only does the Scholastic Book Fair give students the chance to get their hands on some brand new books at excellent prices, every book sold also helps to get free books for the Henry Beaufort School meaning the more books sold the more we can add to our school library.

    We are also able to offer all parents the ability to purchase gift vouchers online for their children to spend at the Book Fair. Not only are vouchers an easy and secure way for your child to purchase books, but you can also get 20% extra free with every voucher! That means that a £6 voucher will only cost you £5, a £12 voucher will cost £10 and so on. For information on how to purchase Scholastic Book Fair vouchers please see the attached poster.

    If you have any queries or would like to know any more about our Book Fair please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Ireland, Learning Resource Centre Manager by telephoning school reception.

  • Winchester Rotary Youth Technology Tournament

    Published 06/06/19

    On 25th March, members of The Henry Beaufort School Staff and Winchester Rotary ran a Rotary Youth Technology Tournament during which 48 Henry Beaufort students, in groups of four, competed against each other to design, build and manoeuvre a model crane through a task.

    The scenario given was that a train, carrying hazardous chemicals in a container, had been derailed and the container had fallen in to a gulley at the side of the track. The crane had to be used to recover the chemical container from a safe working distance, had to be moved to collect the container and then had to return it to the starting line.

    A selection of materials were provided and the solution incorporated the use of wood, an electric motor, batteries, a pulley system, wheels and a magnetic lifting hook. It was also necessary to control the crane’s operations and movement remotely from a minimum distance of 800mm to the container placed some 900mm below the track.

    Several teams achieved the task in the limited time available and demonstrated the effective use of teamwork, communication, planning and design to develop a solution and overcome the challenge.

     

    Mr Applin Assistant Headteacher said “It was wonderful to see our young people so engaged with this fabulous event. All the students in groups of mixed ages and abilities did a great job. I would like to thank Winchester Rotatory Club for their support with this event.”

     

    It is hoped that a similar Tournament will be run next March but with a different challenge and certainly this event was a huge success.
